    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.
     
  9. Things are progressing very well, we have opened a new chapter and moving into " The Official Fender Precision Bass Club (Part 4) " :hyper: :bassist: :cool:

    There must be other Fender Precision Bass owners out there, don't be shy, come and join us we are a friendly bunch, tell us what you have, show us Picts of your gear, how about some shots of you in action during a set, recording a YouTube Video to promote your Band maybe, you don't need to be a Pro, it doesn't matter if your playing in your garage, in your living room, on the floor, glued to the celing or even standing on your head ;) it's all good ( I think, I hope lol ), come and share a few of your stories or join in the existing one.

    That being said,
    I will invite everyone joining to read the rules and guide lines of the “ The Official Fender Precision Bass Club “.

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

    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:
