    Pretty much! I was hesitant when deciding to part with it for another Precison but I have played some great shows and played on some good records with it so I'm content.

    Just really GAS'ing hard for another P at a local shop.

    Very nice. If it plays and sounds anything like my '00 factory Hotrod, it's nothing short of wonderful. Somebody is going to get a killer bass.

    I'm in Ky. Just tell me where that other great P bass is in the shop and I'll buy it and you won't have to worry about selling this one!:D

    I love these basses ( just purchased my second one in Sunset Orange and couldn't be happier) and what a rare beauty you have here!!! Do you know the weight by chance?

    I can't imagine what the other precision is that would make you part with this. I wish I was in a financial position to snag this gem, do you take layaway, Ha ha!

    Nice bass. Seriously.

    Excuse my unfamiliarity with this model......Is the neck a Precision or Jazz neck?
