    Early 80's, made at the Fullerton factory, closet queen Precision in pristine condition. Comes with OHSC in great shape, and all original paperwork, tags, warranty card, manual, receipt....

    Sounds and plays great. Strings are old and dead, but I'll include a new set for free. Two small dings (pictured). Trades considered ($1,200 in value or greater).

    Oh, she's only 8.8 lbs, which is very much on the lighter-side of a P of that era!

    This particular one also has the micro-tilt option (which works great).

    Given the fact that most have been asking/selling for $1,200-$1,300ish and mine is in exceptional condition with OHSC & original paperwork, I believe that $1,200 is more than fair (if not on the low side). Recent examples:

    Wow sweet!

    Dumb questions...

    1) approx weight?
    2) alder or ash (or something else)?
    3) vintage frets or medium jumbo?
     
  3. Nice! In addition to the other questions posed above, is $1200 the asking price or are you only seeking trades at this time?

    Big chunky neck profile?

    1) 8.8 lbs (very-light for a P of this era)!!!!!
    2) I will pop the neck to try to figure that out.
    3) I believe they might be medium-jumbo, but I'll have to measure this evening.

    I'll measure the nut when I get home, but the front to back profile seems a bit thinner than most of that era (which I prefer).

    I can't quite tell... Is this the micro-tilt version?
    Please show the neck date.
    Thank You

    Yes, it's the micro-tilt version (nice setup on this bass too). I'll pull the neck later this eve or tomorrow. It's almost certainly going to be 83 or 84.

    Quad, you don't need to pop the neck on my behalf. I need vintage frets and an ash body but am actually leaning toward building something.

  13. Agree, probably '83 or '84. No need to disassemble.

    Checked the neck out. The nut is 1.75" and it's pretty thin front to back. Very much the same profile my American Special P front to back. Feels great (really).

    Many though this would be an 83 or 84. It's confirmed to be an 83 (pots are 82, but neck and body are 83).

    Neck is super straight. I've seen many old Fenders with the dreaded hump, but not so with this one.

    I can't tell what the body wood is as even the cavities are fully painted, but the wood is extremely hard. The pick guard screws normally strip out, but not these. I tried to slowly test the holes limits and was astounded on how tight the screws would get. This is one tough body.

    Build quality of this Fullerton is extremely impressive. At least as good as my new 2013 American P.

    Hi there Hook. Not sure if I can ship to Russia, but I will look into it. I'll PM you as well.

    I'm guessing ash. The neck/fretboard quilt is sick.
