[FOUND]: Early 70's Fender Precision with Maple Neck

Yeah I know, dreams are free :lol:
Anything with original paint (or traces of) considered as long as neck is straight and truss rod sound
Not expecting NOS or unmodified but I will obviously pay a higher price for older and more original

Re: What's your rig?

I'd sell the 400RB based on what I got for mine :( plus you can bi-amp the 800RB with the 412 and a 112 :D

Re: What's your rig?

No cab since I sold my GK212 ... was going to get a GK112 but Rockshop are too hard to deal with and $999 is nuts
Sold my 400RB and 800RB and bought Martys MBF500 so will probably get a Barefaced One 10 or Super Compact :)

Re: Are low impedance cabinets inferior?

Excellent, thanks for that cjj I think I'll use the speakon socket instead of the jack socket on my cab and get a good cable, is ther really a big difference in cable quality ? I think speakon sockets prevent shorting so worth using 1/4" to speakon cable with a 400RB as its safer at the cab end at ...

Re: Are low impedance cabinets inferior?

Where 'I' is current and "^2" means "squared. So, for a given Power value (watts) the lower the R (resistance/impedance), the higher the current has to be. So, for 200 Watts, we get the following: 8 ohms, current is 5 amps 4 ohms, current is 7.07 amps Except a GK400RB will be 125 watts with a singl...

Rockshop have one listed for $3799 so even with the usual 15% discount it'll still cost a fair bit more than an original one

Re: Anyone G.A.S free?

You've saved up $4000.00 Shame your're not in Auckland, you could try/buy my Fender American Vintage 75 re-issue - with $4K you'd have almost enough change for an original 70s one too :lol: Joking aside, if you buy a new '74 re-issue and ever need to sell it you'd maybe get 1/2 your money back but ...

Re: What's hot on Trademe right now!

Cheers foal I am interested in getting a Steinberger but less keen on this if its after Ned shifted plus the re-fret, also a 4hr round trip to take a look and that's if it doesn't hit reserve ... Funny, I was looking for an early 70's P bass but this reminded of a mates Steinberger from years ago, a...

Do you think the refret job and missing battery cover affect the value much?

Not bothered about battery cover but the refret makes me reluctant to buy without seeing it

Cheers
