Unfortunately i can't upload any photos but recently purchased a Vintage (Brand) Precision Bass it's obviously second hand but it's an old one the chap i bought it off had owned it at least 15 years....it's not a reissue or V4, i presume it's one of the original one's....looks nicely made and plays well, well worn and scratchplate is nicely tarnished....anyone had one and are they decent basses, only paid £50 so presume it's a steal any info on these will be very much appreciated.

I had one of their Tony Butler Sig Precisions and it was a very good bass indeed. Well put together, played and sounded great. Out of all of the more budget range basses I’d tried in order to find a backup to my US Fender Precision it was the nearest in both neck size and sound. I got mine cheap (though spent a fair bit on it afterwards) but £50 is an absolute steal. Vintage imo make very under-rated instruments.

Vintage have always punched well above their weight. 

Until Harley Benton came along, there was absolutely nothing that could touch them at the budget end of the market. Great instruments at a ridiculously good price. 

I'd almost feel guilty picking one up for£50. 😂

Or something like that. Maybe 850

Lol I'm not going to pretend I know the model. It was my first bass, the neck is super slim, and it has very narrow string spacing. Over the years I have replaced the tuning pegs, and put some EMGs in it and it's still a great bass to play.
