SOLD: 1983 Fender USA Precision Bass Siennaburst

1983 Fender USA Precision Bass Siennaburst: SOLD

A lovely genuine USA Fender Precision bass in Siennaburst, one of the more unusual finishes offered by Fender in the early 1980’s.
Basses of this era had some quite specific features which only lasted for a couple years, such as the bi-flex truss rod (works positively in both directions) micro tilt adjustment on the neck via the neck plate, (so much easier and better than using neck shims) 3 hole bridges, white coloured pick ups and single ply pickguard.  It was fairly common to change pick up covers and pickguards to a more traditional look, so its good to see basses with all the correct features still intact.
This bass is very original and in very good condition. It does have a couple of marks here and there and also some of the lacquer has come off the neck, but overall extremely good.
The back of the neck is very good and super playable. Its been “flatted” down as some point and is very quick and comfortable to play.
The neck is like those on the “Elites” from this era, so quite wide at the nut, but slim form top to bottom with quite pronounced edges – I like it a lot.
Set up with a low action and ready to go…
