    This is a 1994 not mid80's, it won't let me change the header.

    I recently aquired a MIM Fender Precision Squier Series on a local trade.
    It's a classy butterscotch blonde with rosewood fingerboard.
    It might have been Ivory and aged to butterscotch, it has a nice worn look, no abuse, no dents.
    I did not know much about the MIM Fender Squier Series so I researched it a bit and I found this:

    http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f8/help-fender-mim-jazz-bass-squier-series-895532/

    There is a rumour of them being assembled from overstock MIA parts, I have no way to confirm that.

    It is a MIM FENDER, someone decided to use the highly confusing SQUIER SERIES name for the series but they are not Squier brand,....I know I am confused enough about it myself....read the link it will explain better about the details.

    The bass is very decent but I have a 77 MIA P-Bass that holds the P-Bass throne at home...:smug:

    It is being setup and will take pictures of it tonight.

    Comes with a no name gig bag with decent padding, not the cheapos...

    It is quite light, 8 pounds my guess, typical PBass setup.

    Selling price $325 Shipped lower 48.
    I would entertain trades for japanese hollowbody basses, or a Westbury track VI, i kinda miss the track II I used to have,.....nice oddball.
    I could add some cash for Guild B-302.

    Pictures coming up tonight, it is in real decent shape, I would say 8.5.

    1 5/8 at the nut, licensed Schaller machines, single ply pickguard, strat style knobs. 100% original.
    The neck is slim and fast.

    Yes - The MIM black labels are from the mid 90's. I've had a couple of these and they are really good basses for the prices they sell at. Good luck

    The post will not let me change the title. This bass is a mid 90s as it was pointed out.
    Sorry for the typo

    Played it last night and it rocks, it does the P-bass thing to the fullest.
    Prior to playing it I did a light setup and this bass intonates perfectly, straight neck, setup medium low action as I like it.
    Definitely room to go lower if you'd like.
    It is a slim neck, feels like a JB profile with the P-Bass nut width which I prefer, reminds me of my Geddy Lee although I have not A-Bd them...sold the GL long time ago...
    I have new found respect for MIM Fenders, although the rumor of these being assembled from MIA parts might be true judging by how it feels.
    Looking for a new home, meantime it will be my workplace bass.

    listening to offers, it seems like I ended up with only P-style basses in my arsenal....I always thought of myself as a Jazz bass kinda guy....gotta revisit that thought...
