    yeah thats why i had a neck made with a 1.6" nut width

    ended up finding a deal on an AVRI precision body
    added a novak pickup and some other parts and i've got a sweet bass that looks almost exactly like the one okczee posted but with a neck i prefer...

    I've had mine a week, Olympic white, love the sound and feel of it. Here it is, got it from Willcut guitars in Lexington, KY. They are an Ebay seller too, very good prices.

    Nicely done! The sale prices for these right now are insane. These are IMO Fender's best basses(aside from Custom Shop). They are consistantly light weight, play and feel terrific.

    Sweet Daddy !

    Mine will be here Wednesday. I fell for the old " everyone needs at least one P in 3tsb." OK, I'll follow the sheeple as it suits my desires.

    I noticed the lower prices on AVRI from many sellers... Are they unloading their stock to make place for a newer upcoming 2013 vintage series???

    That's what I've been wondering...my G.A.S. wont hold much longer. I had planned on buying a 2012 Am. Std after the holidays, but the minute I do that Fender is gonna drop a bunch of Surf Green, Burgundy Mist and Sonic Blue AVRI's on us. Judging from the new Guitar versions, looks like the line may get an upgrade and a price increase if it happens.

    I just saw some on eBay for $1050. I think they are gonna change the line soon.

    EDIT: Hmmmm....perhaps the new line will feature a 70's fretless P and a '65 Jazz.

    By the way, nice P!
