    My 1982 Fender Precision Special in Arctic White (although looks like Olympic White to me) which I purchased brand new back in 1983, my 1987 Hohner B2A Headless, and my 2006 (I think) Fender BG-29 Acoustic/Electric. 1982 Precision Special Bass.jpg 8CA9038B-C2A5-46BC-85C0-B5411009B5E0.jpeg 1982 Precision Special Bass.jpg 1982 Precision Special Bass6.jpg 1982 Precision Special Bass.jpg 8CA9038B-C2A5-46BC-85C0-B5411009B5E0.jpeg 1982 Precision Special Bass6.jpg 1982 Precision Special Bass.jpg 8CA9038B-C2A5-46BC-85C0-B5411009B5E0.jpeg 1982 Precision Special Bass6.jpg lslsmaq1biveofctqcqf.jpg

  2. I was just browsing those early '80s Precision Specials tonight. I was thinking it would be cool to own a P Bass from my birth year (1980) and a super cool candy apple red one with a matching headstock and gold hardware popped up. Now it's all I want. All the colors they made are awesome.

    Found a VM Squier Fretless local - had been wanting to try one of these but they are hard to find, and I didn't want to spend $70 shipping on a $300 instrument. Well damn, this thing is epic! I now have a lovey pair of arguably the most highly rated Squiers ever made. (MF Precision being the other one). Just look at that Squier neck flame!

    Happy.

  4. Nice find! Those MF basses do have nice necks. I had one quite a while, I got along with it.

    Yah thanks! They had one of the newer models there too with the pau ferro board and tort guard. And the difference was night and day. Apparently i nabbed it before the bassist employee could to haha (they have to wait 14 days on used gear that comes in before they can buy)

    Its National Guitar Day. So I took a couple of fresh cell phone pics of my Carvin/Kiesel Icon 5.

    I took this a little over a year ago some are gone, I either sold or gave them away.

    I’m down to the MIM Fender J V, the ‘78 Fender P, SX Fretless, Ibanez BTB846SC, and both uprights, Engelhardt EM1, and NS Design NXTa. 1E9E1BFD-772D-4E16-A713-170884F542B7.jpeg

    Fender CIJ Jaguar modded with Lollar Thunderbird pickups. I usually have a P bass ashtray on it, too. But its off right now.

    I ordered it in 2014. Still in love with it. Felt like "home" from 1st minute.

    This is hard for sellers of $300 (or less!) basses - that's what it cost to ship a bass regardless of worth, and that's probably w/o a HSC or even a gig-bag. Shipping a bass in a HSC can cost $100 or more to ship. I think it's why most go through craigslist or if eBay "local pick-up only".

    I am loving that green Thunderbird style in the bottom right. What brand/ model is it?

    That is a Low Down Bass T-bird made by Tim Seisser. It had three Nordstrand big singles and a Nordstrand 2band pre. It was a great bass that I just didn’t play enough, so I sold it last summer. I know the current owner is around here somewhere, but I’m not sure of his TB handle. He replaced the pickguard with a clear acrylic and it looks killer.

    Proud owner of a double bass:

    Vintage uncertain, probably 1910-ish German made. Dog is fascinated by the tennis ball end-pin. Sounds wonderful, but I have no idea really how to play it. My teenage son will get a lot more use out of it in his jazz combo than I will, but it's nominally "mine" for now. :)
