    I purchased a fender P bass that dates the year 69. But in my opinion the bass is lite weight (for a fender of that age)
    Were there lite-weight models those years? or its a fake. All the serials are in order though.
    Thanks!

    Yes...I have a 73 that's pretty darned light. It's a crapshoot...fender didn't specify a certain weight, so its the luck of the draw when it comes to bodies...they bought batches of wood, and some ended up light, some heavy. You got a good one.

    My main P-bass is a 1966.
    It to is light.
    That said, fender weight variyed from bass to bass.
    Some people like light bodys other heavy?
    My 66 is the best sounding, P-bass Ive owned.
