    There is a lot of info on the dirnt basses, some people have even done full out reviews.
    A quick search could probably answer your questions.

    Yeah, you'd figure as many Fender Precision's that have been sold over all the years it's been in production, there's be more people in here. Wonder how many have been produced all time?

    I have had 2. I miss countours when I play them. I parted both mine out. The neck is different for sure. Its pretty narrow at the nut but really thick. I liek the pickups, but honestly I wouldnt have another one again.

    Can I join? 1963 Precision Bass, purchased for $500 in 1990. It may or may not have originally had gold-plated parts, and was refinished a long time ago. Otherwise, completely original and plays great! Nothing like old wood for tone!

    Any of you Precision mavens actually know what the differences are between the current MIA 61276/7 pickups and the previous 56003/4 sets?

    Much thanks. I can't get anywhere with Fender on this. As usual.

    My 64 refinished with replacement pick guard and replaced tuning machines. Still a beaut though.

    I was thinking the same thing. Looks like an older VR...

    They do, they do. The rig is actually a 1978 SVT and a 2000 810 AV. It's the best sounding head I've ever owned and I've had a US CL, US AV, and VR.
    I'm waiting on my 1969 SVT to get out of the shop and then I'll be able A/B the two heads. I'm also waiting on my 1969 B15N to get out of the shop, so I can finally use that at a smaller gig.

    Here's a clip with the '71 P/'78 SVT/'00 810AV rig:
