Old pic - it's had a Geezer Butler EMG fitted since this was taken. Beautiful bass - alder body & the neck is canary, which is somewhere between maple & wenge in terms of feel. If you're ever near Tyneside you're welcome to come & have a try... 😀

Uau, that's actually pretty close to what I am looking for, and it's the right color!

@benebassOoh that’s nice. What’s the spec?

- Light alder short scale G4 body with tapered neck / body join

- Canary neck / fingerboard with jumbo frets - not a common wood, but a really nice halfway house between maple & wenge

- Schaller BML light tuners

- EMG Geezer Butler pickup / electrics

- Fender vintage bridge

- Status flats

- Finished by Dave Wilson (ex-Overwater)

- Custom scratchplate by the Bass Doc

Has a few signs of wear, but a really nice instrument & sounds great (quite articulate for a Precision). Just not playing as much as I would like these days. Not really given selling it much thought until I saw this thread...

I think Kim Deal of the Pixies used one of these to record a couple albums. Although if I recall correctly it was her sister's, and was a cheap beater bass, before a producer told her to get a "proper" bass.

That's quite funny :)   There's nowt wrong with these.  As above, I have one of the Black N Gold versions of these and it puts a lot of much more expensive basses I have owned to shame in terms of fit and finish.

@benebass I do not need another bass. I do not need another bass...

Put my Warmoth up for the bargain price of £350 cash, but it has to be a collection deal...
