For sale or trade is a modified Fender Precision Lyte. I picked this up here as a project and have had the following mods done:
Took it back to passive with Dimarzio DP 126 set, wired V/V/T/T;
Had the bridge and rear neck plate chromed (I hate gold hardware);
Replaced the knobs with chrome knurled knobs;
Replaced the tuners with Hipshot Ultralights (including a D tuner);
Had the frets leveled and polished; plays very well.
Installed Dunlop Straplok pegs.
The bass itself was the Ivory metallic frost color that has faded to a pale shoreline gold. Looks cool. The bass itself has TONS of "mojo" - the guy that had it before me played the bejeezus out of this for years, so if you are looking for a museum piece this isn't it - it is a player's bass that has seen a lot of action by the prior owner. I tried to get a good shot of the finish cracking down by the input jack, and a small discoloration on the back of the neck. None of these things affect the playability of this bass in any way.
This bass plays very well. I had all of the work done by David Petillo of Petillo Guitars www.petilloguitars.com
. David does all the work for a bunch of heavyweights, and is one of the most respected guys around.
But wait - there's more! This bass will ship with a beat up but functional case, a gig bag, and all of the original electronics and hardware.
All this can be yours for an asking price of
plus shipping! Such a deal!! As far as trades go, run 'em by me. The worst I can say is no thanks.
