I recently procured a (I think its a 1991) Fender Precision "Lyte" 4 string, Tobacco Burst w/Gold hardware.....I havent ever heard much about them until Johnette (Concrete BLonde) picked one up a couple years back and raved about its weight and playability. I havent even seen many around Denver or New Orleans....but I really feel like I lucked out, this axe is AMAZING! To my ears, it packs all the punch of the "P", I can dial in the "thwack" of the "J", and the neck is comparable to a Jazz and is really fast. I have a hard time hitting a bad note on this thing, and it is very kind to the neck and back during those extra long gigs! Anyone else play/own one? Id love to hear more about them...all I really know is that it is a Japanese made bass and the quality/craftsmanship seems to be really good. Thanks!
