    Picked up a new American Vintage Reissue(AVRI) Precision yesterday. There wasn't a single swirl on the pickguard! :crazy: Complete with OHSC and untouched case candy.

    I've owned American Standard Ps, and MIJ Ps in the past but this one honestly feels totally different. Factory set up out of the case was insane, right down to optimal nut action. Loving the fat neck. Any nitro bass owners have any tips for looking after the finish?

    So many good looking faded sonic blue Ps in this thread!

    I don't have one, but want one.

    I'm not a diehard tort guy, but I think tort would look especially good on these basses.

  13. be careful with guitar stands. the foam and rubber can react with the nitro finish and leave marks.
  14. Nice looking bass. Enjoy!

    Gorgeous bass! I feel those vintage blues are such underrated colors for the Fenders. They look so good on a retro bass!
  18. I'm digging that mint pickguard; perfect!

  19. I have major GAS for this, even though I have more than enough P-Basses.
