Fender 2002 Precision V

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by bgavin, Apr 9, 2002.


  1. Anybody seen and played the new 2002 model Fender 5-string Precision?

    It is completely absent from the Fender website, but is present in the 2002 Frontline catalog. The neck is changed to a 4+1 headstock (nice), and I'm curious about other changes.

    I suspect the big blowout of the older P5 models is part of the reason it is witheld from the website, but this is pure speculation on my part.

    I'm curious to see what else has changed other than the headstock.

    I beleive the're using the same 18V pre amp that's in the new FTM basses. The new MIA Deluxe Jazzes have that so I'm assuming that the P would have it as well.
     
  3. What about the neck? Since the headstock was changed (read: improved) I wonder if they did anything to the feel of the neck.

    I like "C" width necks on 5-strings.

    Any idea what these are going for? This is the first I have heard about them. Sounds like what I am looking for.
