Happy New Year everyone! I love my main and current only bass of many years to death (1998 Mexican made Fender Precision Standard) but now it's time that I start looking into investing in a second bass so I have been keeping an eye out for the last couple weeks. Today I came across a person selling a black American made Fender Special Precision Bass that is used but in very good cosmetic and working condition. He did switch out the stock pickups for some Vintage DiMarzio's, but is including the original pickups too. My only concern is that this bass features a maple neck, my current bass and a few others I have owned in the past have all had rosewood necks. I have heard maple necks do give the bass a little bit brighter sound, however like I said I am a little concern because I never used a maple neck bass before. Also he is selling the bass for $699, is it a fair price? I know these retail around $1200 so I would say so, but what opinions and/or experience with this bass do TB members have and can say about it? Thanks.
