SOLD Squier TB Precision- Vintage Modified

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by Rockbobmel, Jun 7, 2020.

  1. Price:
    Plus actual shipping Continental USA ONLY. I will send it in a cheapo gig bag and packed well. Local pickup preferred. I will drive 50+ miles to meet.

    This is a minty Squier VM TB (Telecaster Bass) with one single Fender branded humbucker pickup. It has a HUGE sound and is a great blend of different type basses (Vintage Modified).

    This is the sales ad:

    The unmistakable vibe of the '70s Precision Tele Bass without the vintage price tag!
    The Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass TB has the classic '70s-era Tele bass design, complete with thumping low-end tone from the large, Fender-designed humbucking pickup in the neck position. Also has the traditional maple neck with distinctive Tele bass headstock and vintage-style open-back tuners. A gorgeous sunburst finish over the ash veneer top on a slab basswood body and accurate pickguard shape complete the vintage vibe. Other features include a string-through design dual brass-saddle bridge and two-knob pickup control circuit with volume and tone pots.

    Players from beginner to intermediate and beyond have done it for years”whether installing hotter pickups, alternate pickguards, or just plain personalizing their instruments with fancy paint jobs, modified means adding new twists to a familiar design.

    Do you have the original control knobs?
  8. I just noticed that. It has chicken heads. I do have a set of chromed brass knobs if needed.
  9. Hi can you tell me the approx weight and how the bass is setup action wise? thanks
  10. Hi, sorry for the delay. It is around 8.5 lbs on bathroom scale. The action is fine. (adjustable) I just put flats on it and they are slightly tighter so the relief is a little more than the rounds were. I'll put the rounds back on or leave the flats. whichever you prefer. This thing is a tone monster! DEEP bass!
  11. Thanks for the response...i'm considering.
