    Nice. The grain pattern is reminiscent of Jupiter.

    Beautiful bass dude!

    The simplistic beauty of a bass that doesn't have any unnecessary whistles and bells, still has tonnes of variety through technique and right hand placement, and doesn't have a single bad, unusable sound in it, is just perfect! IMO YMMV IMHO etc. etc.

    I have several Precisions already wearing TI Jazz Flats and LaBella DTFs. I'm also sitting on a set of each, and a set of Low Tension LaBella flats on the way. I'll probably leave the rounds on it for a (short) while, then the Low Tension LaBellas.

    And does Sweetwater take the best pictures or what?

    I agree, I have several basses with active electronics, 3 band EQ, etc... I almost always reach for my good old Precision come gig time.

    They take much better ones than I do. The dealings I've had with Sweetwater have always been top-notch.

    I love rounds on my P basses specifically Bass Boomers it makes the instrument so versatile with a slight twist of the tone knob I can go from Motown to Punk in a heartbeat.

    Hopefully you leave that sticker on so everyone knows how fresh you are.

    I love the 3-tone sunburst specifically in this pattern. Not sure why the 3-tone sunburst that I see sometimes is just too 'bright'. It goes to light brown color instead of darker brown color. I love the darker burst like this.
