  2. I see em every once in a while. I think Musicians Friend is still selling them, but they're not very common at most Guitar Centers. From what I've heard, they're great basses.
     
  3. And it's a "Percision", too!
     
  4. I've played them and they are nice, but both pickups are always on because there is only one volume and one tone control. If you want to get the vintage P tone, you will have to install another pot or a three-way switch so you can isolate the neck pickup.

    Never mind above, I looked at the picture again and it is the vol-vol-tone version. Nice bass, very versatile.

    I believe it's just a fender special p-bass, price doesn't seem too bad, I had one in black with gold pickguard, had it for a short while. Wasn't bad just not my cup of tea. It's MIM btw
     
  8. it's just you...looks like the right spot to me

    Musiciansfriend does still sell them. They are called Deluxe P-Bass Special, and the new price is $599.

    this particular model is discontinued. The one they sell now look similar but it's active. It is MIM. Very nice bass! although i have only played the active one. Good price though. If i remember correctly, they didnt change the price, just added the active electronics.

  13. The American versions were called Hot Rod Precisions, Mexican and other imports(including Squiers)were called Precision Specials.
