*HELP - Japan Squier Precision Bass (80s/90s mij)

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by aaron bernards, Sep 15, 2020.

  1. Hey guys (and gals),

    I recently bought a Squier mij P-bass on Reverb. I need help identifying it as I am not going to remove the pick-guard and neck until it needs new strings!

    The seller said it was a '93 but the headstock makes me believe it's from the 80s. There is no serial number on the neck plate, and I have no idea what the pickups are.

    Unfortunately the guy did a poopie job re-fretting it so there are burn/hack marks along the fretboard. There are also suntan marks around the pick-guard, which makes it evident it isn't the original.

    Overall, the seller deceived me but I'm looking at the bass as a rescue dog that found a good home and needs some love. Also it's on the lighter side and most importantly, sounds great.

    The neck is definitely from the 1983-84 SQ Squier series but the body is something else judging by the plywood construction.

  3. Awesome. Probably won't be able to figure out the body until I take it apart. Maybe someone else will view the thread and be able to identify the body grain! cheers

    What Dluxe said. I agree that the neck is an early neck.
