    Here it is! The Camaro of Basses: My brand new MIA Precision! The ink is still wet on the receipt.

    Feather weight, very good tone. Give me a week to do the vintage mods.

    You read my mind. I'm gonna do a James Jamerson on it. Chrome covers, tortishell pickguard. Then I'll post another pic.

    I just gave it a brief workout. The sound is BAM!... right there. It's like playing an accoustic guitar. And I can feel the vibe through the body. It weighs next to nothing.

    Funny thing, I was in GC in Southfield, and I was thinking of getting a cheapie. A MIM PBass. The floor guy was very helpful, and pointed out some significant differences between the AM and the Mex.

    I asked to "try the AM, for the heck of it".

    3 notes and the checkbook was open. It was over! Right off the rack, The coolest way to get 'em. None of this shoppin' around crap!

    Camaro SS ROCKS! It's one of the coolest and fastest American cars out there. And like a P-Bass, it's beautiful stock!

    There, I just hijacked my own thread!:D

    Actually it reminds me of the Cadillac V16 concept car that GM showed in Detroit. Huge, overpowering, and perhaps somewhat crazy, but stylish at the same time.

    And, to stay somewhere near the original topic, that is one lovely Camaro of a bass. PA, do post some pics when it has been Jamersonized!
