    IMG_0080[1].JPG Back on the block! Snag it before I change my mind again. Really cool fender here! By FAR the best Hot Rod Fender has ever made. And my favorite Precision bass ever! This is a 2014. The vintage style Music Gear Tweed case is in excellent condition and still has that new bass smell. Comes with case candy too. Frets are in excellent shape, neck is great and the most comfortable Precision neck I've played with its compound radius. Light buckle rash on the back from previous owner. scratches on pick guard at truss rod. Unfortunately that's also 60's style 8.5 lbs Here is what Fender had to say about them:

    A gritty throwback to the '60s Precision Bass with premium appointments and modern features.

    The Vintage Hot Rod 60s Precision Bass is a dual-pickup beauty that gives you the best P/J Fender bass tone, style and performance of both eras”authentically vintage-style design touches straight from the 1960s and hot-rodded modern mods ideal for todays players.

    Premium features include an ash body; maple neck with œC-shaped profile, Posiflex graphite support rods, vintage-style heel-end truss rod adjustment and satin back finish; and a compound-radius (7.25-12) rosewood fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo frets, bone nut and aged white dot inlays. Richly versatile and powerful tone comes from its American Vintage 63 split single-coil Precision Bass (middle) and 64 Jazz Bass single-coil (bridge) pickups.

    Other features include a three-ply white pickguard (Black model) or three-ply black pickguard (Natural model), three knurled chrome control knobs (volume 1, volume 2, master tone), Fender Hi-Mass bridge, side-mounted oval output jack, vintage-style tuners with tapered shafts, Stealth œA string retainer on headstock, locking strap buttons, and engraved Vintage Hot Rod neck plate with crossed checkered flags emblem. Available in Black and Natural gloss finishes. Includes no original tweed case case with orange interior, chrome pickup cover, 8 cable, thumb rest and vintage-style leather strap.

    Don't mistake this for an American Standard with a jazz pickup. The build quality and features are that of the '63 AVRI plus much more. Mainly the neck. You have the look (clay colored dots,vintage logo,tinted nitro,) of the AVRI but the playability of no other Fender not even the elite. I personally find the 7.5-12" compound radius of the Hot Rod more comfortable than the 9.5-14 of the Elite and the Select. Also has graphite rods and medium jumbo frets. Its the best of old and new.

    And the tone is amazing. Lots of tonal options and the midrange has a richness to it that sits beautifully in the mix. No hum when bridge pickup is soloed
    Price is $1000 + $100 for shipping. PayPal is fine

  10. Someone grab this thing, I've had one for a couple of years and it's the best playing and sounding Fender I've ever owned, (bought my first P bass in 71) the neck is so comfortable it's unbelievable. It exudes quality.

    I keep going back and forth with myself whether I want to sell this one or my Select Precision. I'm more attached to the Select but it sure is nice having that bridge pickup

  12. Yup that's why I like it, it's pretty much become my go to bass for just about everything lately. It's a Precision but if you want a little extra high end or high meds it's right there and it's got the best Fender neck I've ever played.

    I've got the jazz counterpart to this and I will vouch for the fact that these are top quality instruments. Fit finish and tone are awesome. Not to start a war but I have heard them compared to CS quality. GLWTS!!
