    What bass is it? The 4-string version of my dream bass. I was so upset when Fender discontinued the line. Maybe someday...

    Wonder if that bass is the inspiration for the "Blacktop" series P bass?

    I played a 5 string years ago. It was a very nice bass.
  11. I'm sorry for off topic in this thread, just don't want to start the new one. Local guy is selling Fender precision bass, it is PJ model with noiseless pickups and 18V electronics, neck looks like 70' style. I have only 3 pictures at the moment:


    I have never seen model like this before, maybe some CS? Thanks.

    That is a very bad place to put your bass on a stand, what if somebody opens that door? :eek:

    Most versatile passive bass Fender ever made.

    I understand that Bill Lawrence manufacturers the pickups.

    Headstock at least says made in USA. Not Mexico. Just sayin'.
  19. Perfect, thanks. I haven't been familiar with those newer models.

    Nope. He designed the ones used in the 5-string version, but Fender manufactures them; and Fender used the 5-string design to make their own 4-string version.

    (Talking about the Roscoe Beck, not the PJ).
