Play bass like Martin and Will for less than ?300
« on: December 29, 2009, 12:45:07 PM »
Anyone want to buy a sunburst Fender Precision? Just not quite as old as theirs... :D

I bought it last year cos I was going to have to sell my beloved '71 example, but have decided I can't do the deed. Even so, I have done gigs with this rather than 'old faithful', so playable is it.

So if anyone's in the market for a (just) sub-?300 Fender then let me know and I'll send further details/pics.

I've had a good feel of Michael's instrument and can well recommend it. It's a bit longer than mine, but a bit thinner under the ridge. Nice smooth easy action. Responds to slapping, picking, or other device, e.g. pliers.

No wonder he needed a sit down that time.

I'm just jealous, really.

Okay, I'll subtract the cost of three strings, Singh!  ::)

So you'd be prepared to take off your G string for Dan?

I've got a Fender Strap. If I mumble it enough times, someone will mishear me and be really impressed.
