  1. This is “ The Official Fender Precision Bass Club “.
    I have searched and discovered there isn't one, so here is it :D

    The Rules,
    1. I shall assign numbers.
    2. It must be a genuine Fender Bass ( no parts Bass and no Frankenbass ).
    3. It must sport a genuine Fender Logo on the head stock ( sorry no Squier's ).
    4. It must have a split singlecoil pickup or vintage p-bass singlecoil.
    5. Can have more than one pickup, but must have a split singlecoil or vintage p-bass singlecoil ( Standard, American Standard, American Deluxe, Highway One, American Vintage etc... ).
    6. They can be MIA, MIM, MIJ etc... as long as it was produced under license for Fender.
    7. Vintage and Modern are welcome.
    8. Pictures are encouraged.
    9. Please no rude comments on the basses of others.
    10. No PMs please. it’s only to make it fair when assigning numbers.
    11. Have fun.

    The guide lines.
    - I saw a lot of Clubs on the Forum such as " The Precision Decision ", " The Official Fender MIJ/CIJ ", " The Squier ", etc... but I did not see “ The Official Fender Precision Bass Club “, so I thought it would be a good idea to put one together.
    - The Club is meant to be a tribute to Leo Fender’s Precision Bass, and the Basses presented stay with in the rules, the guide lines / spirit of the club, meaning the Basses being genuine Fender’s, sporting a genuine Fender Logo on the head stock.
    - I just don’t know when a Fender stops being a genuine Fender and becomes a parts Bass, I’m thinking upgrades with Fenders parts such as the pick guard, the bridge, things like Fender's Custom shop stuff, not to mention other parts produced under license for Fender or used by Fender such as the Badass Bridge.
    - I don’t want to be a fanatic, nor do I want to split hairs and police this Thread with “ Is the Bass you present a Genuine Fender Bass “, and “ what upgrade is valid and witch one is not “.
    That being said.
    - I will leave it up to each individual to determine if the Bass they are presenting, falls under the rules and guide lines of this Thread of being a genuine Fender Bass.

    This is meant to be a fun Thread, it's intended to be “ The Official Fender Precision Bass Club “ and for " genuine Fender Basses ", I hope that every one who will be participating, will keep it in the scope of things.

    Enjoy :hyper:

    Isn't there already a precision club? Or is that club all precisions, and this one fenders only?
  16. Don’t call me Sir, it makes me feel like I’m everyone's grandfather lol
    Denis will do just fine :D

    It was a pleasure kick starting the Official Fender Precision Club, I had been wondering why no one had done it before me ;)

    The 92 is 2-Color Sunburst.
    The 04 is a fairly new addition, I got fed up of looking for a Vintage while, so I settled for the 04 is Sunset Orange Transparent because it has the sound I had been looking for.
  17. Are numbers being assigned to each individual bass? If so, I'll go ahead and take number 8 as well.


    I've got six Fender Ps right now, with another project P on the way. No need for all those numbers though.
  18. 1237427290.

    My MIM baby. :) :bassist:
  19. 2007 MIM FSR P

  20. There is a Generic P-Bass Club, this one is a Fender only :D
