    Nice. I'd be all over this if I hadn't just bought a similar Precision. This looks great. GLWTS

    The original color was white. Already refinished when I got it you could see the white in the neck pocket and pickup cavities. That's why I wanted to go to the original color

    I believe Jess told me the weight was either 8.4 lbs or 8 lbs 4 ounces. Either way, nice and light. Swear I would have bought this if I hadn't gotten a similar Precision just a few days before this was listed here.

  10. I used to play a couple of these. Wish I still had them! Love these transition era basses consequentially.

    I agree hard to beat the sound and the playability

    What a beaut! Are the ash trays original? Grab that tug bar and get your Brian Wilson on with this baby! GLWTS

    All I can. Say about the ash trays is they came on the bass when I got it. And of course taken off and put in storage right away and there they stayed for almost 40 years
