Rick's Fine '52

1952 fender Precision

Recommended Posts

[quote name='KK Jale' post='1246502' date='May 27 2011, 12:14 AM']Lovely! Thanks for posting. Those '58s... argh...

Geek alert: as another brace-of-JVs person, may I inquire if yours came with bridge/pickup covers?[/quote]

Thanks for the comment, JV's are just fab, i love them.

My Precision didnt, i added those. The Jazz is a bit special though, it was the one exhibited by Fender Japan, when they initially showcased them to the World, along with a Stratocaster. My Jazz has the earliest known neck date for a JV, and is featured on the JV site. It came with both covers, and also the string mutes fitted. They wanted it to be a true replica, as you know, they were too good, so in mid '82, after just 2 months, they removed all the 'extras' such as mutes, covers, and changed from large fender, small squire decal, to large squire, small fender decal.The 'slab' rosewood boards lasted until mid '83 (Presumably o use up stocks?), when the laminated boards took over. Mine has a JV00 serial, the Precision is a JV0.

Veeery interesting. Your JV Jazz is historic. My Precisions are but a humble JV1 '57 and a JV2 '62. I didn't realise before that covers disappeared with the logo change (I seem to recall a big-Fender-small-Squier J with no cover holes - that I missed, alas - but maybe t'was an anomaly, or I'm mistaken).

Pretty nuts to be talking about these when we could be discussing real '52 neck profiles but, hey, I'm just chipping in where I can :)

PS Bad news. The excellent Mr 99ster uses the black and white Elvis pic...

The one you have now is a younger Elvis than mine.

There were some anolmolies during that transition in mid '82, so you're probably right, shame you missed out on that one !!

We can talk '52 neck profiles, i have two, they aint small!!

I'll try another avatar pic, I'm new today, i'll get there! :)

Rick, welcome to Basschat.

I wouldn't be **ss** because, well, what can you do? The pic is probably copyright anyway. (Maybe I shouldn't say that out loud.)

I'm not really into vintage Fenders, but those are amazing. I would love to have one just to hold it and imagine what's happened to it in the last 60 years :).

I know what you mean, you certainly get that feeling when you're playing them, if only they could talk, there'd be a few cool stories to tell, thats for sure!

Thanks, it's taken a while to build up, there's still a few on the wish list though!

So far I've sold 3 children and 2 kidneys............none of which were my own!! :) (That was a joke....just in case the CID are reading this)
