    Daamn... I like that a lot..

    That is the best looking Precision in the world!!! Between gigs, I'd polish it and hang it on the living room wall for all to appreciate.

    Coolest combinations of color ... they let the chrome stand out soooooo nice!!!

    I love P-basses, and that one's especially beautiful IMO. Thanks for the pics!

    Regarding the "brown stuff": hey, I've never seen a Fender with a spalted maple neck before. J/K! :D :D :D

    Sweet deal, looks like the previous owner already upgraded the plastic knobs to chrome ones and the stock pickups to some kickass Basslines quarter pounders.

    I'm the only owner of it :)
    The chrome knobs came with the bass and they are US one's so i didn't had to change them.

    I change the pickguard and pickup to and removed the volume pot

    That's a Hot for Precision, not a quarter-pounder. QP's have 1 pole piece per string.

    That is a great looking P. The rosewood looks so rich! I love rosewood! And the blue isn't your everyday blue. Hope you enjoy this sweet bass!

    Gorgeous color, Imma look for one in the future with that color, but a MIA with maple neck. Man I can't get over P's with maple necks, the perfect combination of depth and snap. Is it me or is your neck raised like heck where the pocket is?

    Sometime in the past couple of years, they replaced the plastic Strat-style tone and volume knobs on Mexican Ps to metal knobs.

    Can someone teach me how to wire a p-bass with no knobs? That will be cool because i don't use the tone knob ( it sounds the same to me ) and i always turn the volume knob to 10.
