    I was at my local barbershop yesterday and my barber asked me about a bass for his son. He’s 14 and interested in playing. I told him I’d go home and send a few links for some ideas that I think could get him up and running. I was on sweetwater and noticed they are running a deal on Fender products. They’re offering 48 months of INTEREST FREE financing. I’ve been eyeing an American Original 60’s Precision for some time now, and couldn’t pass up the deal. So I bought one. Hard to pass up at only $44 a month. Only problem is, it’s out of stock. My salesman said it’ll probably be a month before I get it. So this is all I have for now. A stock photo.

    And just ordered a set of TI Jazz Flats and a fender pickup cover for it. Can’t wait!

    Indeed! I love how personal they are. Sometimes, too personal. They love to call alllllll the time and ask if you need anything.

    Sometimes it can be slightly obtrusive, but the email that you received today shows that it is worth it. Congrats, that is a beautiful bass.

    Absolutely! I was so happy. My expected delivery went from 4-6 weeks to less than a week. The fact that he wanted to know if the bass they got in today was ok for my needs was awesome of them.

    Awesome, I love these basses! Doesn't it come with a pup cover? My AO Jazz came with both chrome covers.

    Doesn’t look like it comes with the covers. I ordered the pickup cover though. All my P’s have pickup covers!

    I’m not sure Jazz Flats will work on a P...might want to double check that...;)

    They do come with covers! Though the holes aren’t drilled. I have two of these basses and absolutely love them. The neck is reallyyyy comfortable.

    Hahahha, my GF doesn’t care. She loves guitars, basses, and music just as much as I do. She bought me my 59 Custom shop about 6 months ago and bought me a Jack Casady last month. This one was on me though.
