    With my stable overflowing with jazz basses I decided that what was needed was a very good Precision bass. I have always loved the vintage reissue Fender basses and have really wanted to try out the new 1963 versions. And since they now come in the coolest color of all sonic blue there was no question what my choice would be. I just got it tonight when I got home cracked it out of the case and this thing just oozes quality class and perfection. The neck is chunkier then any of the other reissue bass neck that I have play when it comes to P basses. It is thick front to back but still rather comfy. It sounds good with round wound strings on it but I can't wait to get some flats on it.
