    I have no reason to post these pics, other than to satisfy those (like me) that have a soft spot for the '70s Fender look and feel..I personally love the natural finish and the TV logo - so, if you've got some passion for the much debated, but (if you pick the right one) great sounding and looking '70s Fenders - ENJOY..;)

    Very nice indeed!! I definitely have a thing for that natural/maple/black p/g look (I have 5 different ones)

    Here is my slightly younger model from the late 70's :)

    '75, first bass, bought new. Still have a soft spot for black and white basses 35 years later.


    poly finish, B neck, elephant ears and a tv logo - the '69 ALMOST qualifies.

    I like old threads brought back to life AND '70s Precisions.

    My all-original, incredible playing, awesome sounding 1970 P in it's new traveling case (original case is not faring so well these days). Man, I love this thing.

    Like all Fenders no matter what year, they can be hit or miss.
    That said, I just got a 1970-P-Bass that is as good as any I've ever own. Regardless of year.
    70's P-Bass are killer if you find the one.

    Heavily modded '75.
    She and I have a lot of history together. Still "The One" all others are judged against.

    Beauties! My more realistic and affordable dream bass would be a 70s P in walnut, black, or white with maple.

    In 1977 I bought a 72 P bass for 250.00

    I weighed 13 lbs and sounded....ok

    I was never so happy to see a bass go.

    Yikes! You should've checked under the pickguard, maybe someone hid a gold ingot in there.
