Superb bass....great neck and classic sound...I am a writer and performer and this one hits it out of t he park. I have always been partial to the precision bass sound because i started out on a p-bass in '84 so even though i've owned basses from curbow to warwick and in between, i found myself desiring the playability and unmistakable sound of the p-bass even when I had highend basses. Now I have a 5 and a 4 string fender p-bass and am totally into the groove that i love. you cant go wrong with this one. neck is solid. brigde is solid, set up out of the factory sweetly, and the sound is unmistakable through my GK amp.
