I'm still thinking about this immaculate ('83 or '84) MIA Precision I saw in a shop around here a few months ago. White guard and single white split coil. Maple fret board too if I remember right. But the unusual thing is the color. Tan best descibes it, or mocha. The closest thing is a vintage Fender color called "desert sand", but this is slightly darker, and besides, I think desert sand has long been unavailable (like since the 50's or early 60's) Anyway, I guess a refin could explain the minty condition, but I can't imagine someone refinishing to such an "understated" color. Anyone have or seen a bass from this era in this color? Please bear with me, but I am curious and my web searching has yielded nada! Being a second hand (antique/collectible) store, with the bass on consignment ($700) I doubt anyone there knows.
