This is the only Precision bass I ever owned. I bought it in 97' or so and traded it in 98'. The serial # was scratched out on the headstock when I bought it the first time but for dating purposes this finish was mainly produced around 78'. The original pickguard was cracked at the jack and ended up getting tossed along with the old pots. The original pickup was replaced with a Rio Grande vintage P. It sounds good to me. The original pickup is possibly still out there in some gig bag another friend has. The one piece maple neck feels very comfy to me. It's a 1'5/8" B neck and the profile is substantial but not overly chunky. Damned if I can find any dead spots on it either. The bass is most likely ash because she's almost a hefty 11 lbs. The weight doesn't bother me because I'm used to a couple other heavy basses. I think I'll get threaded saddles for the bridge and maybe some tort. These are the best pics I have at the moment enjoy!
