    Anyone ever wonder what a modern Precision bass would sound like, this is it.

    $1200 shipped within North America, shipping outside North America at buyers cost. Comes with Fender molded hard case and all case candy. Not interested in trades.

    Bought this recently from a friend, who made all of the following modifications:

    Take a regular American Standard Precision.
    Upgrade the pickups to Delano single pole split-coil pickups
    Add the fantastic East P-retro Preamp
    Swap out the Precision neck for American jazz neck.
    Add matte black pickguard, stealthy bridge and matching Dunlop strap locks.
    And what you have is one kick-ass P-bass.

    Great condition, 9.5/10, no noticeable dings, just player wear. Average weight, I'd say between 9 and 9.5 lbs.

    Tone is amazing. Passive is great, pull up the front pup and you get a very clear but stronger active tone, pull up the back pup and you get earth quaking low boost, really great for aggressive music styles.

    In fact, I bought this as I was joinng a new band, playing more aggressive rock than my usual. The band didn't go anywhere due to drummer health issues, folded, and so now the bass is available.

    Say it isn't so, bro - JK. I also installed some black Dunlop Straplok strap buttons ;) GLWTS!

    EDIT: I should also note that it has a "bright" function which is enabled via dip switch. I played everything from punk to western on this beast.

    same, I have no regrets in pulling the trigger on this one, would love to keep it, but kinda redundant in the collection, and my only Fender.

    As there person who had all the upgrades put into this bass, I can tell you first hand that the price is MORE than fare, actually it's a steal.
