    Finally, I had enough of my previous bass and took it in and got a new one.
    I did ask everyone here about neck dive, and went with the Fender Player precision, well balanced, no dive and the neck is super comfortable:hyper:.

    Picked it up from my favorite friendly dealer here in Tokyo:)
    As it turns out, stock of the mexican players is quite low in Tokyo right now and will probably take a couple months before more come in. They are quite popular!

    Yay!!! Happy for you, but from what we see here, Japan has a lot of fantastic instruments available. Curious as to why you chose a Mexican Fender over a Japanese Fender.

    One of them was price difference but, I also find i prefer the slimmer and C shape neck of the Mexican player series over the thicker hybrid made in Japan precisions i played. And for some reason I discovered i really like the pau ferro board :angel:

    Good for you. Finding an instrument you're happy with is great. By the way, welcome to TB.

    I think Fender hit it out of the park with the Player Series. They are great-looking, sound very nice, and play very well. I'm glad you are enjoying yours!

    Pau Ferro is a great fret board tone wood. Cool bass.

    I had the exact same one. I put a black pg on along with cream pickup covers and knobs. I love the sage green metallic color, wish I hadn’t sold mine.

    They’re cream. I tried white, didn’t look very good. I modeled it after the player Series Jazzmasters that Fender put out at the same time.

    Interesting! I brought that strap from Canada...Oddly enough, I just switched it for a fender strap lol
    It may be a better strap to go with for performances with the color combo :woot:..Hmmm:unsure:

    Congrats on your Player Precision, cool color and the pau ferro fingerboard looks great. I'm sure you'll enjoy it

    I got picked up one from a TB'er, changed the white pickguard for black... with TI Jazz Flats, it's now my number one over my more expensive basses.

    I wish i had a way to weigh it
    Just guessing, its lighter than my ibanez (Rg 550)....Maybe around 5 lbs, possibly 4.
