Fender hollowbody tele-bass, what was it?

    Guys, I'm looking for some help in identifying a bass that I played last night. It was a Fender japanese built bass, not sure of the vintage. It had a single p-bass pickup and a piezo pickup under the bridge. It was a thinline hollowbody with a single f-hole on the upper side above the strings. I seem to recall it being a single cutaway body style, but I am not 100% certain of that. I played it at an open stage blues jam, and was really digging it.

    Anyone have any ideas as to what model bass this was? I tried googling for pics or info, but I don't have specific enough info to yield a narrow enough set of results.

    Thanks in advance.
  2. There were two different Fenders with this configuration ...

    1) Fender A/E (Acoustic/Electric) Precision:


    2) Fender HMT


    As a matter of fact, there is a TB'er who has an HMT that he was selling last month. I don't know if he sold it but if you'e interested, send a PM to "craigb"

    Sounds like an Acoustic/Electric Precision; IIRC, they were made the early 90s.

    Man, I knew I could count on you fellow TB'ers to help me out. It was indeed an A/E Precision exactly like the one IotaNet posted above, same light natural finish but the one I played was fretted. Thanks again for the help.
