I really like super short scale basses – the ones under 30”, and there aren’t many. This 2004-05 Fender Precision Bass Junior, was a very limited run 28 ½ inch scale top level Mexican build, not lower-end stuff -- not that cheap Mini scene. It has a slightly downsized body.

Just like the accompanying Stratocaster Junior, these came only with rosewood necks and in red or black.

This one is exceptionally clean – two improvements were made. They did not have a tone control so we put on a stacked volume / tone control so it has tone now. Also, while the original Mexi pickup was ok I wanted better and it has a DiMarzio bladebucker in white which sure looks better than black to me --original is gone man gone.  Kool bridge cover added also.

Strings are RotoSound flats -- .115, some of the heaviest bass strings made, but at least for me needed for some tension on this way short scale.

Also has a NOHSC – it’s a close fit but positioned right it does fit OK and close. I guess these came in gig bags originally.

Only prob is the back of one tuner is missing—just fell off.

So if you want P Bass look, feel and vibe but not all into huge/heavy long scale ones, this is a cool option.
