❌SOLD❌ Fender American Elite Precision Bass Sunburst, 2018

The Fender American Elite Precision Bass is at the top end of Fender’s bass models, offering the solid tone reliability and versatility of both the Precision and Jazz basses. It starts with the P-J combination, the P-Bass pickup in its normal spot and a Noiseless Jazz bass pickup at the bridge. It adds a new, high mass bridge with the strings loading through the body, a very solid five-bolt neck joint, Ebony fingerboard, and a 3-band EQ. All the hardware is top quality.

Fender Stratocaster Elite Sunburst 1983

Here’s a rare bird – from 1983, a Fender Stratocaster Elite in sunburst. This model was built only in 1983 and 1984, and introduced a number of new features and hardware pieces. Most visible of these are the short-lived FreeFlyte knife-edge trem, and the pushbutton pickup selectors. New pickups were installed, and the output jack went on the side – in this case, a Neutrix locking jack. With the three pickup switches, all pickup combinations are available. Not so immediately apparent is the routing. From the top, this guitar looks very much like a Stratocaster. But if you turn it over, you see that there is no cover, or route, for the trem springs, just a small plate covering access to the output jack wiring.
