The Fender Precision is without doubt one of the most important instruments of the 20th century and this superb sounding example dates from barely the first decade of production.
So you have the heritage and the provenance right there – as well as the incredible range of sounds that underpin most of modern rock and pop.
She has had a professional refinish and her frets are in very good condition for the age. All the hardware and the pickups are original. The pots both date to 1962. The wires to the pickups have been replaced. The original thumb rest, pick up and bridge covers are included.
This is an original and iconic Fender Precision Bass and is incredibly easy to play. This is a vintage instrument which delivers a wonderful period sound. She has a few imperfections and dings as you can see. There is play wear to the back of the neck which we have shown and there are one or two minor imperfections and grazes as you would expect from a working instrument that is 56 years old. But, as you can see from the images, she is in remarkably good condition and plays beautifully. We think this is one of the nicest bass guitars we have ever seen – and the sound has to be heard to be believed.
The guitar comes with a contemporary Fender hard case. This gorgeous classic has been painstakingly set up ready for sale by guitar guru Simon Bamber in Bristol.
