More surf greenness chez Clarky (Precision content)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have fond memories of Sid, my 70RI CIJ Precision from my first punk band Kismetik, a decade or so back. Nice narrow, almost J-like nut width and neck, and my fave style of Fender P logo. So when I spotted this pretty rare, late 1990s surf green edition online I dived in.

Also I have been under pressure from Mrs C (who ranks basses purely based on colour) to replace 'Minty', my now-sold 62RI surf green Jazz ... oh and @Happy Jackwouldnt sell me his surf green 54P Lull. Well thats my list of excuses ...

Nice one Clarky, I remember the sounds you got with Kismetik, it’s only sensible to be able to recreate those minty tones again.

That is very lovely and yes, minty. Always fancied a P or a Thunderbird in this...

Lovely looking bass. I like that your wife is an "enabler"

I was very tempted by your AVRI and surprised it took a while to find a buyer.

I am really warming to this cool fresh colour. For years I assumed if a bass was neither black nor red then it must have been painted as a practical joke. So shallow was my taste. 

What I failed to realise was how much I limited my GAS with such a narrow minded attitude. 

This is a particularly beautiful example.
