Fender Precision 1978

Recommended Posts

Used 3 - 4 times... as a shovel? 

Rip off if you ask me!

I think the decal is suspect and never seen an orange burst effect on a fender p.

Body looks like a MightyMite one - seen that burst before, sure it was MightyMite. Decal looks odd - is it out of position? Bitser?

He keeps saying it's 100% genuine & original..... a bit too often for my liking
That decal does look a bit off-position.

I must say, I like the colour of the body though

Even if it was 100% original and untouched it would still be well overpriced

Going to go out on a limb and say that even IF the neck was genuine (to which I have my doubts) the body is either a Mighty Mite or Warmoth. I can remember looking into buying a P body a few years back and seeing a finished one available from either Mighty mite or Warmoth in that exact burst (remember it because I hated the colour)

Agreed the decal is way too high up, but the colour just looks like a Sienna Burst with an overly saturated photo.

But if it was all genuine, isn't that really expensive for a 78 fretless P? I mean, is that the going rate for a late 70s P now?

edit: No, Sienna burst wasn't intro'd until 79

I did find a 78 that was sold at The Bass Gallery with the decal in that unusual position - maybe the decal guy had smoked a bit too much weed that week..

It's the gap between the S and 90 that gets me.
