    Just seen this bass pop up on Sweetwater. Wow it is beautiful! I love the black on black with the painted black headstock. Great now another GAS attack!

    It's a MIM P-Bass. I think the price is around $675.

    I'd like it more if it was a Jazz Bass. Why just the Precision???

    I guess the black headstock and rosewood fretboard is $75 more.
     
  14. Because Precisions are perfect in every way.

  15. No it doesn't. Black & Chrome is Classic.

    I played one. The matte black is very nice. The neck was really too chunky for me but that's just personal taste. And it sounds like a p bass.
