I'm currently looking through a Guitar One magazine, scowering the back ads for new and different pedals, amps and whatnot. And I came across the 1983 Fender Precision Elite II

http://www.cowtownguitars.com/itemtest2.php?invno=bf85&itemtop=includes/bassesitemtop.txt (I can never get links to work right)

I've never seen or heard of these before, does anybody know anything about these basses?

I think it's pretty funky, I can't imagine what it would sound like.

...So deep....so beautiful...

I also found this...creation...

Fender
Elite II Precision Bass
1983-1985. Ash body, 2 p-ups, various colors
$750 - $950, (low to high, excellent condition)
the short production run is not a good sign. if Fender builds a bass that sells, they keep making it, for many years. i have not played this model.

Gibson
Victory Artist Bass
1981-1985. Double-cut solidbody, 2 humbuckers, active electronics, limited production
$400 - $500 (low to high, excellent cond.)
again, short production run, not a good sign. Gibson basses do not have a good reputation in the "pro" bass world.

neat basses, but keep shopping.

tell that to the Steve Harris signature. They stopped making it because it sold so well and took a chunk off of the sales of American made Fender p-basses.

I've always been curious about how double P basses sound. Does it become muddy? Is it just too excessive? I mean how much does putting the second P pickup near the bridge really offer? Because it just seems kinda weirrd having a double P bass when you could have a P/J bass or a P/MM bass...
Once you get to the top, the only way to go is down.

They do, I know the Mockingbird does, I think so custom models do as well.

But those are just your everyday run-of-the-mill B.C. Riches, how often do you see a P-bass with two spilt pickups?

john entwistle's signature warwick buzzard uses two precision pickups, but the "bridge" p pickup is inverted

I have one and love it. I have read some info online about this bass and it seems that some of them have issues. I myself have not experienced any issues.

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think
