Just picked up this 1990 Precision Bass Lyte. Speedy neck with nimble little body. Came with original case (strap and 20-foot cable) and in pretty nice shape for 20 year old bass for only $250 CDN.
I love the Japanese Fenders (I would like some USA models but you can find some good bargains on MIJ ..... much harder to get a deal on MIA Fenders in these parts anyway).
What I would really like now would be:
Performer ... really scarce and expensive
Geddy Lee ... I see a LOT for sale. Anything wrong with them or just lots out there?
Boner Bass ...
This is the Fender collection as it stands:
Fender Classic 50s Precision Mexico
Fender JB62-M (32 inch) Japan
Fender Jazz Japan
Fender Jazz Special Japan
Fender P-special Deluxe Series Mexico
Fender Precision Lyte Japan
Fender Precision Special Aerodyne Japan
Fender Precision Japan
Fender Precision Special (Cowpoke) Mexico
Fender Squier Katana Japan
Fender Squier Precision (32 inch) Japan
Fender Sting Japan
One day I'll try to do synopsis but I can say that my two Mexican models play as well as any in the bunch. I've had Standard MIM models that I found to be not very desirable to play. I'm one bass away from the magic number I set at the start of the year 60
. I was going to hold out and buy a MusicMan but i I have fear factor of spending more than $500 on a bass. I'm afraid I'll be stuck with lemon (truss rod stuck etc.)
