Very interesting! I noticed the change in terminology from the GC flyer that came this week. Priced at a hefty $899, which has been regular street price for the American Special Honeyburst Precision Bass.
I don't think the pickup in the Honey is unusually great...it sounds like a Precision...but sure do like the weight, the neck and the overall look!
Is the stain finish on the original Honey nitro for sure? I could never find detailed specs as it is FSR and specific to GC; Fender generally doesn't post those.
