    I'm offering one of my Fender Precisions for sale. I'll be posting photos over the weekend.

    I purchased this bass earlier this year on impulse. Generally, I'm very pleased with it, but as I have a 73 precision that I play all the time, its been sitting in the closet too much to justify. Here are the stats:

    1975 Fender Precision
    Olympic White body
    Black pick guard
    Maple neck/fretboard/headstock
    Original pickups
    Thumbrest
    Chrome bridge and pickup covers
    New Rotosound flats
    Original case

    This bass is beautiful and all original. The finish is nearly perfect, and has aged to a lovely pale yellow/cream, with the expected "crazing". The frets have never been touched, and the fingerboard is like new.

    I purchased this from eBay for $1,600.00, and I wasn't at all disappointed. It is about as clean as any mid-70's Precision I have ever seen.

    My recollection of the auction info was that it weighed in at about 9 lbs. I only have a bathroom scale available, so I'm unlikely to get much more accurate than that.

    Not unless you happen to have some parts for an LT1 Camaro laying around. I need a roll cage and brake upgrade. ;)
