    Seems like a fishing expedition - people selling prime vintage do it all the time ; "let's see if someone pays this price", and then if it is sold it raises the potential asking price for the others like it. What something is 'worth' is only what someone will actually pay for it.

    IMG_1738. I picked this up a couple of months ago. 1971 all original as far as I can tell.
  3. Only 60 being made? Just a guess.

    Finally a break. Thank you I do appreciate your kind words. There is whole a log story that goes with this experience but I won't take up time with it. New Guy(still not officially named) is #3 for me. But #1 boy. I have raised in one fashion or another 4 generations of girls. I am not sure what to do with a boy. I do know they diaper differently than girls but after that I am at a complete loss.
    Both Mom and NG are doing suprisingly well. That's enough for now.
    Everyone just have fun. If you are not having fun you are not doing it right!
    Thank you again for the kind words.

    I myelf am a newbie in the Precision world also. But I do know enough that is a beautiful instrument. I am aware as well it s Custom Shop so well made. But that is where it ends. For a bit of education for a old man may I ask the particulars? Like model series type etc. Also the neck wood as it is so dark. It sure is Saweet looking.

    IMHO it is a walnut neck.

    It is indeed an all-rosewood neck.

    Sorry all for the delayed response and thanks for the kind words. That is the correct specifications for the bass. The rosewood neck is wonderful to play and quite satiny, if that’s a word. I really like the dark board too. The spec that says sort for light on the ash is an understatement. It is quite possibly the lightest P bass I’ve ever played.

    Somewhere along the way, I discovered I preferred P Basses over all else. I knew that I was hooked when I was trying to EQ all my non-P basses to sound like P Basses. What surprised me as most odd is that depending and boards, necks, and bodies, just how varied the tone can be and still be a P Bass.

    The gold anodized P/G on. 2 TSB looks so classy to me. Michael League has an exceptional example and I almost changed my AO in white blonde when I saw it. White basses are among my favorite colors, so I didn’t.

    All that is to say, that I currently have fewer basses than I’ve had in some time. I traded several basses to make this happen and one other that is one the way.

    One day soon I’ll try to get a photo of the P Bass family.
  15. This was the happy Sunday P today. So happy. IMG_20190804_161004.

    I’ve put a deposit on one. Curious to know if the fingerboard is lacquered (not a fan) or left natural like my Sadowsky. It may be a very nice bass.

    One thing to consider when changing diapers: unlike girls, boys are able to pee in any direction.
