1996 Marked the 50th Anniversary of the Precision bass and to mark the occasion, Fender USA released 500 flame top Precision basses as a limited run. Here we have number 181. The electronics on the is guitar are simple. A single precision bass pickup is wired to a volume and tone control. Elsewhere, the spec list is exactly as you would expect from a P-Bass. Rosewood fretboard, maple neck, traditional P-Bass scratchplate. The maple to however does give this bass more of an upmarket look than some of its counterparts however. Commemorative features include an individually numbered neck plate and 50th anniversary chip on the back of the headstock.
The bass does feature numerous scratches on the body and there is some wear near the truss rod where the neck has obviously been adjusted in the past. The gold hardware has tarnished and the neck has a slight bow but still plays nicely.
