Up for sale at The Guitar Dude we have a totally radical P-Bass reissue that is clean and mean, it floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee! The Precision Bass was Leo Fender's big idea to have a bass that was fretted, like a guitar as opposed to the double-basses many early rock outfits were utilizing. The combination of a solid body with electronics and a fretted, maple neck like the Tele and Strat made the bass "precision", a player would now have the luxury of hitting the note right on instead of relying upon one's hand for proper intonation. This re-issue gives us a re-kindling of that now-famous spark, and a perfect vignette into the glory days of the fifties. The bass is ultra lightweight and resonant, with a keen, balanced feel. Plugged in this instrument exhibits a powerful tone with a broad dynamic range and beautifully voiced tonality. The neck is clean and true, and the bass sets up to a tee with low, precise action and smooth playability. It has a classic Fender C profile with plenty of girth as you move down the fretboard. The beautiful Alder body is resonant and paired with the upgraded American made vintage reissue classic single coil pickup, delivers a very warm and balanced tone that is smooth with plenty of bottom end and punch.  Cosmetically the bass is in phenomenal condition and clearly sat in a closet or under the bed for years as there is minimal play-wear. This is a fantastic piece that is sure to satisfy one lucky new owner to the fullest, only only at The Guitar Dude.

It has just been professionally set up and dialed in for optimal playability and tone. It has low action with no buzzing or dead spots and is an absolute joy to play. It has been deep cleaned and detailed. All guitars will arrive looking and playing great. The frets have been leveled / dressed / polished and the fingerboard was cleaned. (Unfinished Rosewood and Ebony boards get treated with Fret Doctor - a proprietary all natural oil that is the best on the market) It was professionally set up and has brand new strings, the action was adjusted, the intonation is spot on and it plays excellent. All the electronics work flawlessly.

* Neck is perfectly straight and the truss rod works with no issues

* Intonation is spot-on

* It has been professionally set up with nice low action & new American made strings.

* If needed, the frets will be dressed leveled & crowned

* All frets are polished prior to shipping when they are set up - They will shine like new!
