I need a spot of help again! Apologies in advance for starting yet another "help" thread, but I have searched and couldn't find what I was after. Anyway, hot on the heels of getting my new Stingray (pictures still in progress... I'll post them eventually!) which is admittedly the bass to end all basses, I've flogged enough stuff to finance my ongoing GAS... I want to get a new Fender Precision. It has to say "Fender" on the headstock for no better reason than I've wanted one since I was at school, and 20 years is a long time to lust after something; and "new" just because I like new things, and I'm always suspicious about "they used to be better". They probably did, but there were still some pretty duff ones out there which likely make up a big percentage of the current "for sale" market. It looks like my choices are the standard US model, the US deluxe, the two vintage models or, if I save up quite a bit more, one of the "time machine" series. There's also the Fender 50th Anniversary P, which certainly looks nice with its quilted top, but I understand from reading here that it might not be anything special in terms of quality. Fortunately my hang-ups about maple-vs-rosewood have been sorted out not just by my new rosewood stingray but also noticing that JJ Burnel's hideous greenburst P was a rosewood, so that pretty much ties up any worries about it not sounding bright enough. I really like the look of the US Deluxe but I'm quite worried that the extra pickup and all that extra circuitry will adversely affect the P sound. I'm also likely to have to mail-order whatever it is that I decide on, so which of the above is likely to be the most "reliable" when it comes to decent craftsmanship? TIA for your help! Chris.
