1989 Fender Precision Bass Lyte - P Bass - MIJ Japan - Violin Burst - W/ Case

Regular price $999.00

Unit price per 

What an oddball! Fender took their super popular Precision Bass, shrunk the body a bit, removed the pickguard, added a Jazz Bass pickup, boosted it all with an active preamp, and put on a thinner and more narrow Jazz-shaped neck. The resulting bass is light, balanced, somewhat compact, and quite versatile sounding. Top that all off with a cool Violin Burst finish and matching headstock. Boom!  Great bass!

This one is 100% original and unmodified. Three of the plastic caps on the knobs appear to be missing....but when we look around online, most of these appear to be missing on this model.  

The neck is straight, with no issues. The truss rod works in both directions, and the fretwear is minimal and isn't affecting the playability or intonation. We just gave this one a full setup with low action, a fret polishing, fingerboard hydration and fresh strings. No scratchy pots! This one is ready to play!

There are a few light scratches and dings, typical of any bass of this age. There are no signs of abuse! There is a paint chip near the tuners (see photos). 

Original molded Fender case is included.
