Cosmetic Condition: Cool vintage vibe & a rare color to boot! The original Candy Apple Red finish is simply gorgeous, and although it shows quite a bit of wear it's still quite eye catching. There are various nicks, chips, dents & dings; scratches & play wear. It's pretty light for a P-Bass & quite resonant with a good body/neck connection. The bass has been professionally set up by us with a fresh pack of strings & low action, so plays & sounds great!
Neck: Nicely rounded maple neck with a beautiful, dark rosewood fingerboard & pearloid dot inlays. The fingerboard appears to have been planed down a bit, from about the 15th fret to the end. From the side view you can see it looks a bit thinner than the rest of the fingerboard. Also the last three pearloid dots are replacements & have a much whiter look to them than the others. The frets appear to be original, however, and show very little wear. Original Fender "clover" tuners are in perfect working condition. 1 9/16" nut width; 34" scale length. Truss rod is working & neck dates to '71, as does the neck plate serial number.
Body: Contoured, solid alder body finished in original Candy Apple Red. Top-loading bridge with four adjustable saddles & original bridge cover. Unoriginal Allparts pickugard & finger-rest. There are two extra screw holes in the body underneath the pickguard near the bass side of the neck. This was most likely from a previously placed thumb-rest. Bass weighs 8 lbs 13.5 oz.
Pickup: Original P-Bass split single coil - 10.65K ohms. Master volume & tone controls with original knurled knobs. Pots are original & all electronics are in perfect working condition.
Case: Original hardshell case included along with original owner's manual. The case is a bit rough cosmetically, but serves its purpose well.
Why We Love Fender
