Quite light at 8lb 5oz Tom, me owld apfel strudel, however, that is over the weight that you need sadly.

On the positive side, The Toon stayed up, so all is well :lol: (whadya mean I'm a selfish git :unsure: :lol:).

What is 'The Toon' and why was it in danger of falling down? :huh:

It is too heavy :( :( damn shame!

Newcastle United and if you'd seen our defence you wouldn't have needed to ask :(

I knew you need basses under 8lb in weight Tom this doesn't quite get there.

All PM's replied thank you. Lloyd, especially tempting but I must stay on the chosen route :P

For those who have asked, yes this is based on a 1970's Precision, hence "TV" logo.
It also may well be lighter and better made than a lot of proper original 1970's Precisions, who can tell :P?

It is interesting to note that some places are advertising these as a Factory Special Run.
Back in the 90's, the Geddy, the Marcus and the Duck Dunn all started as Factory Special Runs, ie limited amount originally.
The Geddy and Marcus made it to full production and are still made to this day.
The Duck Dunn didn't, so only one run of those was made, hence their limited availability today.

Further interest seems to have vanished.
I've not been using it, simply to keep it pristine. If I still have it next weekend, I'm going to start gigging it as it's a nice, powerful playable relatively light bass.
Sale is preferred but I would certainly be interested in a part ex against a Bongo or Sterling as these are both itches requiring a darn good scratch :D

I have cash to put to a tempting deal.
For any folk with the Fender Mex blinkers, this is an interesting little read from some actual owners

THE classic colour / pickguard / neck combination for a Precision IMHO

It was seeing the Stranglers and the Ramones that made me take up bass - a nostalgia-tinted bump for a lovely P :)

Thanks Shaggy, your wonderful and massively under rated Gibson Explorer bass is a nostalgia-tinted trip for me. I gigged a white '84 Gibson Explorer bass, probably same run as yours, for donkeys years. Sold it when I grew too old for it.
JUST SHOWS WHAT A TIT I AM :rolleyes: :(, one of the best looking, playing, sounding basses made IMO.

Anyway, this 'ere Dee Dee, if it doesn't go this week, I'm going to gig it and bring out my inner Steve Harris!

SORRY SOLD THREE DAYS AGO.
