Fender American Professional Precision vs. Bluesman Vintage Deville vs. Nash PB

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by RichardPjazz, May 4, 2019.

  1. Three models in the titles. Pros and cons of each one.

    I am debating whether I should get a second Precision, and if I do, which one should I go for. I’d ideally be looking at the used market.

    What are the reasons why you would choose one over the other? Thanks!
  2. I have played the Fender Am Pro P and loved it, but I am very intrigued by the Bluesman Vintage and the Nash PB, and there is no way I can get to try one of the last two.

    Go Nash. I’ve played many in stores and they all feel and sound great, plus they look amazing. Get a PB-63

  4. Thanks. If I go with Nash, I’d probably want to get a 63 as I prefer a Rosewood fingerboard but Maple wouldn’t be a deal breaker.

    Weight is an important consideration for me. Lighter than 8.5 lbs. Of the Am Pro I tried, two were heavier than that and one was at 8.3. From what I have seen online, it shouldn’t be a problem finding a light Nash or Bluesman Vintage.

    Mine is Nash PB-57 with ash body and maple neck/fingerboard.
    It weighs about 9 lbs :)
