Basses: 1983 Fender Precision Bass

Little Blue Pills

Private Party Spring 2002

This was an anniversary present from Pauline back in 2001. It was a "Pawn Shop Prize" so to speak. A 1983 Fender P-Bass body with DiMarzio Pickups mated to a Kramer Pioneer bass neck. An interesting combo, but it does have a thick meaty tone. I did have to remove a thick white coat of paint from the pickguard when I first got her. That was fun . . .

I've called her the "Krender" all these years. Seems to fit nicely.

Apart for servicing June 2022.

After a couple of decades of non-use, I figured I would start going through this bass to get her ready as a backup for a new band. Went ahead and replaced the tone pot as it had a broken leg and wasn't working, cleaned then set her up with some new strings. Also replaced the foam pads underneath the pickups.

Just about ready to go. I forgot how heavy this bass is wow.
