    View attachment 2974863 Hey guys,
    I recently bought an NOS American Standard Precision Bass which dates from 2013 (serial starts with US13***).
    The sticker on the pickguard looks different from what I have seen so far. Anyone know whether this is also the CS 60s pickup? See attached file. Or is this one different?
    Mine has also different tuning pegs than what I usually see.

    Second question... Hope I am not bothering you too much...
    I would like my bass to sound similar to like for instance "It's a kind of magic" by Queen or "You're the one that I want" from Grease.
    Any recommendations for pickup height?

    Thanks in advance!

    Regarding tone...Just a guess:

    Queen=P bass

    Grease number=jazz bass

    Regarding pickup height: Lookup Fender P factory specs. Start there and adjust to taste.
