    Well, I was goofing around in one of my local music stores (name withheld to protect the innocent)...When what did my eyes behold?? A beautiful MIA Standard Precision.

    It was just hanging there in all of it's Burst/Tort & Maple beauty.

    They had it hanging amongst the MIM models, and had I not been looking in that area, I may have missed it.

    I have been after a MIA Precision for many, MANY years, but the finances just never allowed for it...Now, as I've aged, I find the finances a bit more forgiving of my "addiction"...Plus they tossed me a price I simply couldn't say no to.

    This bass was singing to me long before I even touched it, it sounds and plays better than I could have hoped for.

    Here she is! :hyper: (Sorry for crappy phone pics...I was way too excited to find the real camera).

    Great choice...I love all my Fenders.

    All you need now is a set of flat wounds to make it "sing Old School".

    Very, very nice! I ended up buying a 60th Anniverary P, but I went into the store looking for EXACTLY what you bought.

    Enjoy!

    Classic. Beautiful bass and a lifetime purchase.

    Maybe it's the photo, but the stings under the string tree look like they are unraveling or something.

    Thanks for all the comments guys :bassist:

    I stayed up and played this beauty well into the night...gonna pay for that all day today....


    Actually that's the cloth wrap, it's a very light blue, almost matches the strings, but looking at the pic, I can totally see what your saying.

    Nope, I was goofing around in Milwaukee. (I live half way between Madison & Milwaukee, so both are kinda "local" for me).

    Madison's music stores leave much to be desired these days...:rollno:

    I see by your 3rd picture that MIA was really important to you?
