Is this a genuine Fender Precision bass?

    I was looking to find a new bass on Reverb when I found a 2015 Fender Precision bass. I generally trust Reverb but I'm a bit suspicious about this one. Anyone reckon its genuine? Something looks a tad bit off about the Fender logo, might just be paranoid, but worth checking!

    It’s an MIM.
    Is that a bargain price for such a common bass?

    The black lettered logo was short lived at the end of the Fender Standard line's run. Prior to that they'd been silver for quite a while. Looks legit to me.

    Yep, it's a regular 'ol MIM P-bass.

    With the sweet hardshell it's not a bad deal...not great but not bad. Without the case, I would definitely pass.

    edit: just noticed that the seller is attempting to charge extra for the case... walk away. (I guess "optional case" right in the listing title wasn't obvious enough for me!) :confused:

    do you reckon its worth me going for this fender or going for a £400 squier classic vibe precision bass?
  10. It seems a little overpriced, you can usually find MIM Fender Ps on eBay for £350ish. The Squier CVs are very nice basses, it really just depends on whether you want the Fender decal on the headstock, there's not too much to choose between them.
