Fender Precision Lyte – Japan – Sienna Sunburst – Gold hardware (1984/87)


Superb and very very rare Fender Japan Precision Lyte Active bass guitar. A superb example of Japanese craftsmanship. This unique bass comes in good all original condition. It does have a ding on the top of the headstock and lacquer loss over the serial number (which is still visible) see pics.

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!
