Fender Precision (Lyte P/J). MIJ - Sold
£550
Essex

Recommended Posts

2nd bass up.....

Edit: Price drop  £500  £475.00 (trade value £550) a lot of bass for your money... to coin @AndyTravis phrase “all those sounds in just 8lbs” 😂 Some new pics up to showing how nice the colour is . Have also given the neck a clean and some lemonoil and it’s come up beautifully  (new pic added) 

A rather lovely precision lyte I acquired in a trade last week. As light as it is, I am just not going to use it at the minute and so it has made the sale list. I also prefer Jazz style necks.

It is as it came to me and would benefit from some new strings but they are good for now. It’s a black sparkle colour, hard to see in the pics but it’s very nice. It’s made in Japan with an “A” serial number which I believe denotes 85-86, if that’s right (Someone please let me know if that’s different) it’s in great condition! All stock I believe and working as it should do with the p thump and jazz tones, both combined a lovely and warm tone. There’s a small scratch in the lacquer by the jack (see pic), this can’t be seen from the front and a small indent at the 4th fret (see pic) neither detract from how it plays  😃 Happy to send more pics if anyone needs them.

Comes in a fender padded gig bag.

Cash is king, but as I’ve been asked about trades: Fender P deluxe (PJ) the one with the jazz neck, not in burst or black.

Fender Marcus Miller (natural or white) and cash your way  

Collection or meet is preferred, shipping is possible at buyers cost

Any idea of what the weight of these "Lyte" P basses might be?
I don't need one.... I don't need one... I don't need one....
But it's either my shoulder, or a little voice just over my shoulder, telling me I should at least try one of these out someday ;)

I’ll go weigh it for you Marc.. 

Thanks @bassfan - like I say, I don't "need" another bass atm, but it's good to know such things as your shoulders / back etc get older.....

What the bloody hell is this still doing here?

These are lovely, I’ve played a few in my time - all great. 

There was a point about a year or so ago when everyone was after one...madness.

If I wasn’t in “bought too many basses” jail...I’d have a go.

Paul is a proper gent too - have dealt with him a couple of times now.

All those sounds in just 8lbs ... see? That’s my logic.

I thought this had gone. Genuinely shocked it’s still here mate?!

Mental amount of bass for the money. A lovely seller too.

Cheers mate. ☺️
It’s not gone yet... was playing about with the settings earlier, sound fat on the P pick up!

      Bass in very good condition. Only a small scratch as you see in the photo.
      Everything works fine.
      Original Mike Lull case included.
      The bass is located in Italy.

      Hi everyone
      I'm looking to replace/upgrade the pickups in my 1981 Ibanez Roadster RS940 Fretless and I'm finding the choice of cream/ivory pickups out there pretty sparse (regardless of the current COVID -related supply problems).
      Currently, the bass has the pickups from when I bought it, second-hand for about £90 from Allbang & Strummit on Earlham Street (now there's a blast from the past!) in London in about 1988.
      The previous owner had already replaced the original ivory bridge pickup with a black EMG, which sounded great. But now its crackly electronics need a bit of TLC so I figured I would improve the sound and look (I've lived with the quirky one-black one-white combination for long enough) with some new cream/ivory, active, exposed-pole PJs, as the original Ibanez Super 4 PJ seem impossible to find.
      But the choice out there seems to be EMG with no exposed poles, or DiMarzio, which aren't active. Lightning rods are black only.  And Lindy Fralin are a bit on the pricy side.
      I'm starting to thing that I may have to compromise on the exposed poles and go with Ivory EMG PJs. (Rather than PJ-X which I've heard don't have the slightly more low-fi growl.)
      Anybody know of any other options?
      Cheers
      Andy

      SOLD, PENDING THE USUAL.
       1983 Squire JV Precision bass, candy apple red, rosewood board. All original domestic JV, alder body, relatively light – 3,9kg. As one can expect the bass has been played a lot and shows some dings and dongs here and there, patina on the hardware, etc., but is all original and in more than perfect functional condition: neck is straight as an arrow with minimal truss rod tension (it has a loooot more room to go), also the neck is extremely comfortable at 42mm at the nut and the playability is to die for – out of 12 precisions that I possess incl. very nice vintage fenders, this is the most comfortable to play: super nice neck profile (flat, but not too much) and extremely low action. This is also the last JV I have and the best compared to all the others I had over the years (around 10 if I remember correctly). With flats it does the Motown job, with rounds it sounds deep but aggressive.
      More detailed pictures can be found here - https://photos.app.goo.gl/1AJdmjTWwmQ3Qi7R9 
      Why am I selling it if its such a great bass – I am letting go a part of my collection and keeping only the more vintage precisions. I am aware the asking price is not among the cheapest – I have sold JVs here for 500 pounds some years ago, but am also not quite sure I want to let this one go, so if it doesn’t sell for this, I’ll be happy to keep it. Plus - try to find a CAR with rosewood board - it took me close to a decade. Also, if you purchase it and do not find yourself to like it – I can take it back as long as you cover the shipping and payment fees.
      Any questions – please, feel free to ask. Price includes shipping to most parts of EU.
