[color=#141414][font=verdana, geneva, lucida,]
been waiting to get this one together for a while now, just picked it up after leaving with my "go to" luthier/tech man[/font][/color]
[color=#141414][font=verdana, geneva, lucida,]
this was put together to be the ultimate touring workhorse, for gig after gig after gig.[/font][/color]
[color=#141414][font=verdana, geneva, lucida,]
Slab Precision Bass body (quite light, parted out from someones bass who had created a fully faithful tribute to the old fender slab precisions, but then parted it out after acquiring an original, if i remember correctly) neck pocket had been widened for the previous neck, so has a bit of a gap, but its only cosmetic and i kind of like the janky look.[/font][/color]
[color=#141414][font=verdana, geneva, lucida,]
original oldschool (i believe) fender precision pickguard with the metal plate underneath.[/font][/color]
[color=#141414][font=verdana, geneva, lucida,]
Dimarzio DP122 model p pickups, mid heavy p bass pickups - the only type i play[/font][/color][color=#141414][font=verdana, geneva, lucida,]
pickups are wired straight to volume (no tone control) and then to jack.[/font][/color]
[color=#141414][font=verdana, geneva, lucida,]
Leo Quan Badass II bass bridge - i have these on all of my basses, this is the type with the pre slotted saddles.[/font][/color]
[color=#141414][font=verdana, geneva, lucida,]
Limelight medium relic 75' style jazz bass neck, rosewood fret board with block inlays and fretboard binding[/font][/color]
[color=#141414][font=verdana, geneva, lucida,]
reverse tuners - i don't think they would've been standard on this neck, but its something i much prefer.[/font][/color]

Nice, I absolutely love the black, black, maple look...I'm after a Lakland Bob Glaub in that look, but I'd need to offload first.

Cheers, it is a pleasing look.

Just a bit of shielding to be done and then I will be trying it out with the band. :) Hope you find the Lakland that you fancy.

Think this pic belongs here too, my '66 Slab Precision, 100% stock, and played (needed a clean at the time of picture)

It took me over 20 years to find a Precision that sounded good, then I found a few more ;)

Here is my new build, all done except for a missing scratch plate screw and strap pins!
Should there be a pickup cover too?

Had this since Christmas but wasn't sold on the white guard that came with it. Got this tort one on ebay for little over a tenner and it finally looks like I wanted it to :happy: . Fresh set of strings and a setup and together with the new pickguard it's like having a new bass again!

Well this is my own very humble offering. Squier Vintage Modified Precision V in my favorite sunburst/tort/maple and now sporting a new F decal on the headstock for no reason other than I just love the look of the bendy 70s precision logo. This would be the second cheapest bass I have ever bought new but it's also my all time favorite.
It may not have the pedigree of some of the amazing precisions posted in here but instruments are very personal and for me personally this one is perfect!

[color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]I just acquired this Am. Std. "PJ" Precision. It's an Am. Std. Precision body, with an Am. Std. Jazz neck. CS60's, Precision / Jazz pups, with a side mounted jack. It really plays nice. It's also a Limited Edition, just how many Fender considers Limited Edition is not to clear right now. I guess.[/font][/color]

Very nice, have you sold it yet? :D
