    I played a nice 95 (possibly 96) American Vintage Series PBass the other day. I can't seem to find out too much about them online (versus say, a Fullerton RI). It had a V-series serial number.

    I thought it looked and felt very nice - pretty light as well.

    Just curious if anyone has any opinions to share on these.
     
  2. Was it a '57 or a '62 model?

    The series are:
    - U.S. Vintage Series Fullerton (1982-84) 57, 62 models
    - U.S. Vintage Reissue Corona (1986-98) 57, 62 models
    - American Vintage Reissues Corona (1998-13) 57, 62 models
    - Pure Vintage Corona (2013-18) 58, 63 models
    - American Originals Corona (2018-today) 50s, 60s models

    They are very consitent builds. All around 8-9lbs.
    American Vintage Reissue's - Show 'em if ya got 'em.

    Great - thanks for that info, FenderOil. The bass I tried looks like a U.S. Vintage Reissue Corona '62. 95 or 96 production.

    Pretty sweet player. Feeling a bit of GAS ...
     
  4. Any pics?
    Can't go wrong. Had a few. Still own one '82 P - do you still own that red Fullerton Jazz (avatar pic)?

    I did - and I played the very nice custom shop Jazz too (beside it in the photo). It's Oly White with rosewood and tort, and a little arm wear starting to show. A few dings, but the neck seemed very straight and clean.

    I do still have that Fullerton Jazz - that and the 74 P beside it are the keepers ... well, the 77 P too. I don't really NEED another P, but I am thinking of attempting a guitar trade for it. Pehaps I can resist for a while longer.
