Mexican MIM Fenders....Show us yours!

Recommended Posts

Any reason to show my 2nd favourite bass of all time is a good reason!

2002 fretless, new bridge (Gotoh), new pickguard, epoxied fingerboard and Lollar pickups. 1 of the best basses I've ever played.

I bought this about 3 years ago because I liked the White and maple ,and I was really surprised how good it felt and played  IMO it’s equally as good as my us jazzes 🙂

My two gorgeous girls. The one on the left is my Fender FSR 70's Precision and the one on the right is my Fender Mike Dirnt Precision. Both are absolutely superb. I simply cant fault them.

My 2005, almost mint condition. I have the bridge/pickup cover for them which makes it look cooler but gets in my way.

LPB MIM Standard. Bought this time last year from Thomann. 

This is one of the last Mexican Standards made, before they dropped the range.

Incidentally, this is the only maple boarded bass I own.

Here's mines. I wired a Custom Shop 62 pickup on the Precision and add a cover.

A cover for my fretless too and I wired a push/pull pot, a blend and a simple 4 positions handmade varitone.

They now have both the tone I'm expecting from them.

I have a 5 string in that colour, and now a black pickguard has gone on my list of stuff that I somehow need to spend money on. Thanks for that.

You're welcome ;) It looks so much classier with that pickguard IMHO.
