Hello, I've just picked up a 1986/87 MIJ precision. It's a fantastic player with good tone, but is a bit of a munter looks wise. What I like about is it's narrow maple neck whicj is kinda halfway between a Ja and a P. The finish has been removed, and it's been varnished. Looks OK from a distance but not too good up close. The body is 4 piece and, I believe basswood, which I've never been keen on sound wise............but, I must say, sounds good on this baby. My local luthier has quoted me £150 to have the bosy refinished in a solid colour with a nitro finish - which i think is pretty good. Alternatively, I could pick up finished Alder body from Brandoni in the UK for £115. Does anyone have any experience with brandoni bodies - are they any good? What should I do....decisions decisions!
