Fender Classic Series '50s Precision Bass Lacquer
I'm new to the bass playing world, as I'm primarily a guitarist. I was wanting to play bass for a while, and after trying out and being around many basses, the one that always stuck in my mind was my good friends original 1959 and 1960 PBasses. The sound, feel and general vibe of the Precision Bass is just perfect to me.
I ordered my PBass the second it showed up as in stock on the Sweetwater website. I love the fact that the weight and pictures of the actual instrument are there for you to see. I received a call from my sales associate Chris, (who is awesome, by the way) and he told me he'll be emailing me the website pics which I was really stoked about, since the pics themselves were totally drool worthy.
The bass came in and it was PERFECT! Not a single flaw was discovered and the smell of fresh nitrocellulose paint is as awesome as a fresh cup of coffee on a cold winter morning (it really is).
The weight of the bass 8 lbs 5 oz, is very comfortable, and unplugged it sure is loud, and the plugged in tone is all classic Fender PBass, meaning awesome! Even the quality of the case is great, and a tweed case is always classy.
All in all, I'm very very pleased with my purchase and the Koil Kord promotion was cool also, even though my wife basically stole it from me and she now uses it in her lap steel rig, LOL!
So in closing, I must give my thanks to all the fine staff at Sweetwater, especially my Sales Engineer Chris Sanders (You Rock)!
