Boutique P bass... anyone remember it?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

A couple of years ago Bass Guitar Magazine reviewed a fabulous bass which was based on the P bass with 4 strings, a single split coil pickup with just a volume and passive tone control. 

It was natural finish wood body, and the reviewer gave it a good review. It was around the £1500 mark if I remember correctly. 

I can't remember the name of the company or model. It wasn't one of the well known firms like Sandberg etc. Anybody else recall this wonderful looking instrument?

I thought it was the Fodera one until I saw your price prompt.  They were roughly £185,000 or thereabouts.

A Made in the US Fender Precision will cost you about £1500 these days.

I think you might be referring to the Rikkers Precision.

 

Mike

That's the one thanks @Mike Brooks

This is the one, absolutely lush...

Been googling every term I could think of related to a very posh P bass with no luck.

I remember seeing that , but at the time the price tag put me off, beautiful bass though, and I can’t recall seeing any for sale 🙂

So have you bought it? 😂

I did but I woke up shortly afterwards 😉

Highly unlikely to come across one on my travels I suspect. 

Wouldn't mind another read of @Mike Brooks BGM review though, can you access old articles online somehow?

Well that deserves a slot in the “Best looking P Bass “ thread. Much nicer than most of the ones shown there so far.

Hmm, never has GAS for a precision before ....

£2300 for a passive single pickup bass mind. 

Still, better value than a beat up 60s fender.
