US Std or American Series Precision

  1. I am thinking of buying a used hot rodded Precision but the guy selling it can't tell me if it is a US standard which is now discontinued or an American Series which is the current model.
    He bought it last year so it could be either.

    Does anyone know how I can tell the difference. I understand that the differences are fairly subtle i.e. the shape of the fret ends. So is it possible to tell just by looking at it.
     
  2. Most peaople agree that the only noticeable difference is the rolled finger board edges. Not really that big of a deal.
