    My bass player found an American Standard Precision today in a local used guitar shop we have here, she snagged it for eight hundred bucks. Fender calls the color "Candy Cola Red" -- it is stunning. All-maple neck, black pickguard, flashy red body, it's a real looker of a bass. Got that S-1 switch on the volume knob that makes the pickups act like a J-bass ... lots of versatility in it. It's a gorgeous instrument. 2003 model.

    Thought you'd like to know :) I'll post a pic if I can get one

    Wicked cool. I love the red with black pickguard. My favorite combo. Lots of great basses out there, but I always come back to the precision.

    Yeah, that is a great combo. Fender calls the color "Candy Cola Red" but when I look for similar pics online, they all have white pickguards.

    Bass player gal is estatic

    Don't have permission from her to post her pic here with it, but she looks good with it.

    I love it. Not a big Pbass fan, but that one looks great.

    I have the same P-Bass, great bass, sound wise and playability. I did not know the color was called Candy-Cola Red.

    However I did have some problems with the S1 switch, had to fix it twice, if it happens again I am going to just wire it as a normal P-Bass.
