Yesterday I posted a question asking for help in identifying an unusual Fender Precision bass. Several of you were good enough to suggest that it was probably a parts bass. I went back to check it out again today, and liked so much I bought it (price disclosure towards the end). Here's what I found out. 1. The neck is "Allparts licensed by Fender" (burned into the butt end). 2. The body: I don't know? It has a date on it stamped April 28 1998, along with other markings. USA? MIM? 3. The bridge: I don't know. Any help? The overall bass plays great. The only weak point is the "Licensed by Schaller" tuners, which feel flimsy. All else is great. The best part was the price. I walked out the door with the bass (which had new strings) in a Fender gig bag for $172. They still had the original price tag on it of $450. So . . . score!
