    About 6 months ago I saw a great looking Fender at the music store. It had a P-bass neck, telecaster bass body and P/J Pickup configuration. It had a blondish finish on it and a black telecaster pickguard. Rosewood fretboard. It was selling for 580$ CANADIAN! It got sold though. I'm so mad I didnt have the money to buy it. It looked so great.

    Can anyone tell me what model bass this was? Sorry I dont have a year or anything.

    Sounds like a "FrankenFender" to me.

    Someone took components and jammed them together, perhaps some Warmoth parts.

    Damn, I was hoping I could find another one.

    Thanks though.

    It might have been a Precision Special. There was a version made a few years ago that matches that description and the $580CDN price while a bit high would be in the ballpark. They were made in both Mexico and Korea.

    The problem with the name "Precision Special" is Fender has used it at different times for totally different basses, causing a lot of confusion.

    Hmm... so there's still hope.

    I'll do a search on the net.
