    83 Precision Elite, super clean, LIGHT, like 8 3/4 lbs, almost unheard of for late Fullerton era P’s. Neck profile is wide, flat C width (1-3/4), very 1957, and surprisingly comfortable. All there except the silly ‘fine tuners’, no issues, excellent player, preamp works perfect, F knobs perfect, very minor impressions on the back, one pinhead-sized ding on the back of the lower horn, nothing through the paint. Ships in near new TKL case. Added bonus, the bass also has the correct (and near impossible to find) HipShot drop tuner with the matching big cloverleaf. Original tuner included, of course.

    How’s it sound? Forward and a touch aggressive, kinda Spector/ Jazz Bass-y grit with both pickups running, can get bright, dark, and a lot in between. Very versatile bass, extremely well built, and fast becoming collectable.
    $1450 USD, shipped Canada and US 48.

    I had one of these back when they were new. It was my third bass.
    I still miss it. This is one incredible bass, folks. The new owner will be one lucky son-of-a-gun!
    GLWTS.

    Bump for a cool ‘83! These are generally a LOT heavier than this one, so grab it while you can.
