So apparently this date low 80s, made in Japan.
Precision is a passive bass 21 frets.
In terms of settings, well that's all passive: volume and tone.
The neck is fairly wide, well-spaced strings .... What the old
So the neck is very nice to play, easy to pick up ... For access to acute, no problem, it's very intuitive about this bass.
In terms of form, well it's very classic (as in the picture), light little flat, it weighs a bit (it's not excessively heavy ...)
His level, I am fully satisfied: its a bit "vinage", probably due to his age, to play the blues is no better, but it can also play more modern music (jazz, metal) with its sharp attack and a well rounded and warm ...
Short as the ball
For my style of music is perfect, I'm a nostalgic blues, and metal fan (Steve Harris of Iron Maiden used this bass in particular ...) and frankly I am very satisfied ...
I play with Hartke Bass Attack preamp and a Trace Elliot amp GP 7 SM ... Nickel what!
I have 3 years ... My favorite is his home, its grain, which can be found in the more modern low (especially active) ... The little less, the excess weight ...
I tried a lot of bass before choosing, but that was long ago, I remember that ... : /
Price level, I had been to € 400 at the time, and it was not bad, today it must be worth a little more ....
Without hesitation I will take it ....

Groove on Family's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
• Precision Bass body type black / white plate, passive, volume + tone, 21 frets
• View the previous opinion. I know nothing more about his pedigree.
• The handle is really too large for my taste.
• No problem to access the treble.
• It weighs but it gets worse.
• For sound that is "vintage", a grain, the charm of passive treble a little bit garish to be, but you can draw round sounds like soul, R & B, rock, 60's, 70's and even reggae.
He 's come out of from time to time. This is my first bass. It emits a very light background noise, but little more than some new JB HA3500 in my head with the greasy fuzz is perfect for songs like "gratitude" of the Beastie Boys.
• The + Its appearance and sound "Roots", its sentimental value.
The - really too large handle / weight.
• No, I didn 't tried other models at that time. I buy before you even know how to play the bass.
• For the price / quality ratio is m 'had seemed good. I had it to pay 500 francs a hand amp with 80 watts rotten there are 12 or 13.
• To begin with hindsight it was perfect. Today I find the handle too large to do this but it makes your fingers.
Mine is very roots, electronic crachouille some pets and wear of the coating of the handle from a few frets. May be one day when I'm rich I tinker. I keep it out of nostalgia and what she does is probably not much. For the estimation of the opinion above, if that is the case the better. May be it has appreciated in value??
