A big reason why I bought my Fender Classic Series '70s Precision Bass was because it was the only non custom shop P which had black inlays. Buying this bass was no easy feat, as most of the majors do not carry it. Well now Fender has decided this bass' party piece should be for the masses. http://www.fender.com/store/precisi...le-frets-maple-fingerboard-with-block-inlays/ I've come to love my bass for reasons other than the inlays, but c'mon Fender! I feel a bit ripped off. My bass gets complements and/or disbelief and interest quite a bit. I wouldn't want a parts bass, but I would of liked a 50s fiesta red body/or charcoal frost body instead. Jerks.
