After these Classic '50s Precisions were introduced, I was skeptical because they were made in Mexico. I've owned a bunch of Fender basses, but always bought basses made in the USA. Then one day I was in a store that had about 5 of these (3 Fiesta Reds and 2 Black). I played all 5 and was blown away. Not a dog in the bunch, and they all had THAT tone that a killer P-Bass should have. They were on sale, but I didn't buy one because "I didn't need another bass". I later kicked myself for not grabbing one.

About a year or two later I happened upon a used Honey Blonde one for a great price. I snapped it up and it's been one of my favorite basses ever since. Absolutely killer tone, and the Honey Blonde/maple/gold anodized looks even better in person than in pictures. The only caution I would give is if somebody simply doesn't feel comfortable with the older-style P-Bass neck. The width at the nut is 1.75". More modern P-Basses have a 1.625" nut width, and a Jazz Bass has a 1.5" nut width. I switch back and forth from all three types quite often, and do not have any problem whatsoever. But if you absolutely do not like the 1.75" nut width, then this bass is probably not for you. But that's a shame, because you'd be depriving yourself of an absolutely great-sounding bass at a much better price than an American-made P. I love this bass...

I have been wanting a P bass for sometime now to go along with my Jazz bass that I've been playing for the last 8 years. What drew me to this particular P was the old school vibe that it has. I love the honey blonde/gold anodized pickguard combination and the fact that it has the wide neck and vintage (small) frets. It definitely has the 57-59 look and feel nailed. When I got it I immediately replaced the round wounds with a set of 50-105 chromes flat wounds because they have been my strings of choice for several years now. I made no adjustments at all on it for a week so I could let it settle in with the new strings and some playing time on it. After a week I adjusted the truss rod 1/4 turn to flatten the relief in the neck to get it where I wanted it. This bass was set up very well right out of the box . Intonation was spot on, string heighth was very close and neck relief was very close to where I wanted it. The best part of this bass is the neck. The frets are finished very well,especially on the ends, and it plays very fast. The width may not be to everyone's liking but to me it's perfect . It has the American bridge with the grooved saddles and the American Standard pickup they used prior to 2012. This now my favorite bass. The tone pot actually works through its entire sweep so you can get anywhere from reggae thump to a bright pop on this thing. I play mostly blues, 60s and 70s classic rock, some old Motown and some old funk tunes. For me this bass can do anything I want to do. I would recommend this bass 100%.
