After a long and really rather hopeless search for an affordable Lake Placid Blue Fender Precision bass I've finally decided to buy a copy instead and make the best P-bass within its possibilities out of it. I've chosen Richwood, a brand that could be compared to SX (or Essex) when it comes to 'hype' and value for money according to (mostly European) satisfied owners. I was also very pleasantly surprised by the quality of this Chinese instrument right out of the box. With a good setup, some visual and some more 'structural' changes it has become quite an eyecatcher and - more importantly - one great sounding and playing Precision for just a fraction of the price of an original. There's Rocco, there's George Porter Jr. and Duck Dunn, and sometimes there's even some James Jamerson to be found in this bass! - Richwood '57 reissue P-bass in Lake Placid Blue - pickup cover and bridge cover - thumbrest (not historically correct, I know, but that's how I use it) - Seymour Duncan Antiquity II pickup (bought secondhand) - N.O.S. 60's LaBella flatwounds (once in a lifetime opportunity, fabulous sound) - D.I.Y. foam stringmute Total cost: 299,- It's been great fun to put the pieces together and create my own dream P-bass, highly recommended!
