    There's a gorgeous tobacco sunburst hanging at my local GC. It's way on the top rack and I was in a hurry so haven't played it yet. I kinda need a P bass in my herd... was thinking Mexi or Squier... but that thing looks sweet... For those that already own one, does it have the smaller vintage style frets or are they jumbos? How is the weight? My only reference thus far is Sweetwater, theirs seem to clock in around 10lbs which is a bit much for this old man... thanks in advance for any info.

    Mine is a tobacco burst that I got from Sweetwater. It has medium rise jumbo frets. Mine weighs 8lbs 13oz. It is a fine bass. I like the sound of it in passive mode almost more than in active. But the active mode gives you a tremendous amount of possible bass tones. I am seriously considering another one in the champagne/tortoise finish.

    You must live in Denver! I played a burst elite p at GC in Denver yesterday. FANTASTIC. So many useful tones. That mid control is i think the secret sauce. Pretty sure this instrument will not be getting lost in the mix.

    Haha not Denver though I have been through there many times. The one I saw was in Dublin CA. Still haven’t found time to go back there and play it!

    Looking into these a bit more, only the jazz is available in 5 string. Would like to try a P fiver sometime.

  10. Do the original Elite P-basses from 1983 qualify? If so, I'm in!

    Big Brown delivered this yesterday. She's well balanced, got a great feel to the neck, and has a quite usable preamp, or not, if I choose. Nice dark rosewood fb. I almost thought it was ebony from the seller's photos. If I'm going to keep it, which is likely, I want to go tort. Anybody got a tort guard they want to trade for?

    I don’t have a tort guard but I’ve been considering it for mine. Please let me know if/when you find one for a good deal!

    Even though Fender installs a tort guard on the Champagne Precision, they emailed back claiming that it's not available as a replacement part. Wonder why?

    Anyone know the difference between Sienna Sunburst and Tobacco Sunburst on these? I'm looking at a trade.... the guy claims it's new and Sienna Sunburst. I don't see Sienna as a current offering, but the photos of Tobacco Sunburst sure look a lot like Sienna to me.
