It's been a long wait, but well worth it. Had it delivered to my office and it arrived Monday morning, after unpacking it while in a telephone conference I had put the case under my desk during the entire day. The smell of new / old case was making me crazy, especially knowing I won't be able to take her home before 8pm that day. Anyway, the new gear excitement has subsided a little, I can think clearly again. I did put some new D'addario steel flats on in a lighter gauge, plays really nice now. The stupid thing is, I can't afford an amp. It's not that I can't pay for an amp, it's just that I have no place to put it in my tiny pigeonhole of an apartment in Hong Kong Anyway, it's a '59 see through blonde with the anodized guard. My first fender bass, my first precision and my first 4 string bass. In the second picture it's sitting next to my trusty old strat I bought about 10 years ago, with a similar color scheme. Now, I'm constantly traveling between two cities and my band is in the other place (not Hong Kong), so I'll be looking for a "copy" or back-up of this precision bass to leave there for band practise every now and then, any good suggestions? I'm thinking the 60th anniversary precision in blonde with the black guard looks very nice, what do you guys think?
