STUNNING and very very rare Fender Japan Precision Lyte Active bass guitar for sale at Guitar Garage London! This superb example of Japanese craftsmanship left legendary FujiGen factory around 1994 (P-serial) - and was loved and cared for throughout the last 26 years. This unique bass comes in good all original condition with a several small dings and scrapes on the body, surface finish scratches, one ding on the top of the headstock and some very minor rosewood wear on the first fret.
These were produced as part of a limited edition "Lyte" series, that were build using the absolute best available lightweight alder bodies, high-mass bridges for superb sustain and stability, active electronics with 2-band EQ and Blender and beautifully voiced PJ pickups for a huge palette of sounds. Although called "Precision" the slim C-shape neck reminds more of a Jazz bass neck - fast and smooth. Gloss lacquer on the back of the neck makes this play like butter, dark rosewood fretboard is embellished by pearloid marker dots.
To make this even more of a Deluxe model, the neck heel has a convenient contour and MicroTilt adjuster, the hardware is all gold - and the headstock is finished in two-tone sunburst! How cool is that! A true gem of a bass!
This instrument received a full professional setup with deep body clean, body polish, neck deep clean, lemon oil fretboard treatment, full electronics check, truss-rod and action and intonation adjustment. Restringed with D'addario 45-100 Nickel-plated steel strings.
This guitar will be shipped around UK and EU with Parcelforce courier, safely packed into a sturdy guitar cardboard box. 24h courier service provided for UK customers. Worldwide shipping provided as well!

Please note that although we put our heart and soul and also all our knowledge into every single guitar we sell, a setup is a personal preference and we cannot give any guarantees. However, we try to get the best playability out of every guitar and set them up so you can play both rhythm and lead. We also pull them all apart to clean and check every single component and replace all unreliable parts with new ones, from dodgy pots to the whole wiring, tuners, string trees, nuts and etc. All the work done is described in detail in the listing.
We make sure that every guitar we sell is problem free and take full responsibility for the accuracy of our listing descriptions. All photographs are done by a professional photographer and processed on a calibrated monitor. Some colours might look slightly different on your monitor, but we will always put the official Fender colour name in the listing description, so please study pictures of other guitars with the same colour if you are unsure. We focus on finding great quality guitars and making them reliable and inspiring to play.
