Have you the movie The Commitments? The bass player has an early '50s Precision lefty.

Mine has the single-coil pickup, and it's the Thump King. Very percussive! It's like playing a bass drum that'll play notes.

I just got a new bass about a week ago. A Squier vintage modified telebass. Supposed to be a replica(more or less) of a "72" Fender telebass.

Fit and finish - very nice, no obvious flaws, nicely applied tri-color sunburst and a very nice(tight) neck/pocket fit.

Action and hardware- Okay tuners, nice retro brass saddles bridge with string thru body. Big fat humbucker at the neck. Set up playable when I got it. I did do a few tweaks to suit me, but it was very playable out of the box.

Sound - Deep, Low and warm. I am able to coax some highs out of it, but basically it is suited very well for Blues/Vintage rock/ and Country. Not suited for anything else, unless you have lots of pedals. Not a slapper or popper definitely, although a good player might get it to pass as such.

Anyway, I played a church music gig (2 hours) at my brother-in-law's house yesterday and I can report this bass aqquitted itself very well. Checking tuning before the second set, was still dead on. I got all the tone i needed ( Running through Bassman 150 into the PA). We played From old gospel tunes to Bluegrassy Religious songs to Very Upbeat and Loud Pentecostal-type Comtemporary Christian Songs. I never felt like nor did it sound like tone, volume or sustain was lacking anywhere. I was turned up in the mix( which I wasn't that fond of doing) for the first set and everyone said the Bass sounded great. We turned me down in the second set, and we got the same compliments

Overall, I am very pleased with this Bass. It is a real looker and when I bought it, I told myself, if it plays as good as it looks, I will be a very happy camper. It definitely met all my expectations. For a low buck bass( $279.00 online) this one is gonna be hard to beat if you're looking for vintage vibe and that low down sound.

I'll put a picture or two on this post, as soon as I figure out how to do it.
