Fender “57” Precision Bass. (1996 MIJ). Rebuild and upgrade.

With the Precision stripped down to its’ component parts, I can now begin to rebuild the guitar, using some upgrade components, to transform it into the ’57 replica it never quite managed to be, before. Since most of the replacement parts are upgrades – I’m hoping for quite a transformation in the sonic character of the instrument too.

I’ve never really had a look “under the bonnet” of this MIJ Precision, so to speak. It’s been stored away, and has been overlooked for quite a few years. Time for an upgrade, and a bit of TLC. But first – I’ve got to dismantle it, and take a look at what’s worth replacing.
