  2. Heres My 78' Precision.. It has been modded with EMG P/J pups, And that bridge!! have anyone seen anything like this??? its authentic Fender! the story is the guy who owned it before me knew someone who worked for Fender and got him parts...

    This bass weighs in at a little over 17lbs on the bathroom scale!!!!! I S#!T YOU NOT!! Its the heaviest bass ive ever played & quite rediculous, playing it live takes its toll on ya!!

    This is an absolute TONE-MONSTER!! Probably the best sounding Fender I've ever played

    And heres my 67' Yamaha SB-5a Bass, wich i literally picked up TODAY for $10... not bad... sounds great.

    Since this thread has been reborn, I noticed that the photo in my original post (now uneditable) is not displayed because I moved it to it's own album. Fixed. I've also replaced the BadAss II with a Hipshot Brass.

    While I'm at it, here's my '80 Peavey T-40. I'd always regretted selling my '79 T-40 for Ric seed money. When I made captain, I treated myself to a replacement. The both now qualify for the "Basses you will never sell..........show em" thread!

    My Cimar by Ibanez, should be made in the early 80's.

    Pretty beat up but still playable.
