FENDER PRECISION P-BASS LYTE Active Flame Top MIJ Vintage 1994 sub-7 lbs 34740


Regular price $699
Fender rare P-Bass Lyte--just like the name, not too heavy on the shoulder. Sweet! 

Description

You're looking at a 1994-95 Fender P-Bass Lyte made in Japan in Flame Maple Sunburst finish. These are fairly rare basses that are quite unique and give you a ton of bang for the buck. They are basically a P-bass with a body that has been shrunk down a bit to make them much more ergonomic. Weight is only 6 pounds, 14 ounces--that's guitar-like weight! Neck is a slim Jazz bass-like profile, very easy to play. Frets are 90% intact. It has great sounding active P- and Jazz pickups. Gold hardware, high-mass bridge, and matching headstock. This particular Lyte bass has some edge marks and some finish cracks on the lower horn (see pics) but it still looks really great. Also missing a couple of knob caps. The flame top looks freakin amazing. Plays great up and down the neck. Lot of instrument for the money. No case. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking!

TONE:
These don't have the weight of a normal P-bass, but the active PU's give plenty of oomph to the sound. With both P- and J- pickups, there are a ton of different tones on tap. Controls are Master Volume, Pan, Bass Boost/Cut, Treble Boost/Cut. The Pan control lets you dial in the perfect balance between the pickups.

Guitar Setup
All our setups are done by our in-house trained luthier. Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!

Packing
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
