Used Fender Precision Bass PB43 Vintage White
Fender P Bass, crafted in Japan, in aged vintage white. This guy is a PB43, one of Fender Japan's more basic models. It's simple and effective: light and comfortable, big round tone, classic look. There's some chips and dings, and the G tuning peg is bent (still works fine), but it's in pretty good shape. These didn't make it to Australia as a new model, so they're not super common here, and while you're not getting deluxe features, the build quality is very good. The matte finish neck is a nice touch, it's smooth and easy on the hand. This is a very cost effective way to add a nice P to the arsenal.

Cosmetic condition notes: moderate finish wear. On the back, there's sone scratches near the neck plate and a chip approx 1m across near the bottom. On the shoulder area and near the input jack there's some finish chipping, see the close-up pics. There's some minor dimples on the front and some play wear on the guard, which is sitting flush. Chrome has a little wear but all working fine. Biggest thing to note: the G tuning peg is quite bent, but it works fine; see the pics. Overall: fair to good condition (6.5/10)
Playing condition notes: Action is low, neck is straight, intonation is good, truss rod works. All electrics tested and working properly. Frets have a bit of wear but no pitting, heaps of life left (8/10). Set up with 45/105s. Playing nice and easy, this one is simple and effective.
