(SOLD) 1978 Fender Precision (A-Neck Model)
Lichfield, Staffs

Recommended Posts

1978 Fender Precision. This is the A-Neck model, so has the Jazz type neck (38mm) and ideal for those without the chubby fingers or don't like the wider neck, but want a Precision. It's not after market before anyone asks, as they made a few of these in the late 70s.
Obviously, it might say 78 on the head-stock Ser No, but we all know Fender bits could lay about for a while before being assembled, so could be between Dec 77 to later. I've found the neck stamp is the best thing to go by for when it was assembled and the stamp here shows 79 (last but one digit). The Fender spotters among us will also work out the model, neck, month, year and day of the week the chap assembled it 🙂
Ash body, so a heavier than 60s & early 70s alder versions, but sounds great and 'growly'. Has the usual marks and dinks you'd expect from a 42-year old bass that been used as intended.  Weight is 4.7kg or 10lb 3oz, whichever system you prefer.  It seems that with great sound you pay the price with great weight, but that's what you get with ash 🙂 
All original, frets in good order, truss rod ok, but paintwork has gone a bit 'milky' and thin in places with wear (tried to show in the pics).
Recently set up with 105-45 rounds and comes with a Hiscox Hard Case.
Happy to post at buyers expense and risk.
No daft offers please, as not desperate to sell it, and not too fussed about trades....... but you never know.

I'm not with it at present, so will weigh it later when in.  Something makes me recall it was 9lb and a few ounces.  That's the late 70s ash versions for you 🙂

There's no constantly same weight for these (they seemed a bit random in weight), but will pop in here when I weigh it.

Here's the weight (heavier than I thought, but with great sound comes great weight it seems with ash):

4.7kg or 10lb 3oz.
