Hey bassist, I thought yall can help me with perhapes an age-old fender bass question. I am looking for a new bass so any help will be greatly appreciated. Knowing that the pre-cbs Fender bass are harder to find, let alone afford, I have to look for an alternative for my new bass. I nailed it down to two good options: a 83 Fender Precision American Vintage '62 Reissue or a 2005 Fender Custom Shop 59 Precision Bass. I wanted to know from any who has experience playing those two basses. I was thinking that a 20 plus year ago bass should age well enough to produce a sound closer to those aged 40 years plus. But being a reissued, perhapes it is just a standard P bass with cosmetic changes. (Pre-cbs were standard basses too) And the other is a Fender CS and CS no doubt produced great basses, though it has not aged a bit. So i guess it aged bass versus Custom shop makers. I am R&B / funk / soul bassist playing hits by Jamerson, Weeks, and Rainey to name a few. I am looking for that round nice sweet singing tone of the P bass. A Fullerton reissue or Custom shop. Thanks!
