    Headband (John) and I did a trade deal for his '73 Fender P with an A neck. I've wanted one of these for a long time and they just don't appear in the classifieds very often. So, when I saw this one, I jumped. :hyper:

    Nice! If my '66 P had had a maple board and an A neck, I'd still have it.

    And I must say it arrived as advertised... it's a good one. with excellent fit and finish, with a straight neck. I had to move the tug bar back to it's original spot and remove the pickup cover – cause that's how I play.

    This does not look like a bass that's ten years older than me.

    Beefy and sleek is a great way to put it. The neck has narrowness of a jazz, but some meat to grab onto. All of the jazz basses I've owned were not fenders, so question: is this a jazz neck with a precision decal or is this something else?
     
  14. That is one classy looking bass you got there. Enjoy !!:)

  16. You son of a! That right there is my other dream bass! I just picked up a 74 all natural and I'm in love. Still won't stop me from listing over this one. Nice score.

    Good lord, it's practically flawless. Someone must've treated this thing like a queen over the years. Rare to see a bass in that shape as old as it is.

    they're definitely out there if you look around. my '73 was in really good shape too. i sold it about a year ago and kinda regret it now.
