Description

What makes this bass special:  100% original & finished in an ultra cool & rare trans blonde.  Tight, neck/body connection for superb resonance & sustain.  Killer sounding pickups & a super comfortable neck that plays great up & down the fingerboard.  Fresh strings & a pro set up so it sounds amazing!

Cosmetic Condition:  A real road warrior, but what else would you expect from such an awesome sounding bass - various nicks, chips, dents & dings; surface scratches, weather checking & finish wear.  Overall the bass has a great look to it with a gorgeous patina.

Neck:  Nicely rounded flame maple neck with most of the finish worn off the back.  Maple fingerboard with black dot inlays.  Frets have been leveled so there's really no wear showing in them.  Fender nickel tuners are in perfect working condition.  1 5/8" nut width; 34" scale length.  Neck is straight & truss rod functions fine.

Body:  Contoured, solid ash body in blonde finish.  Top-loading bridge with four adjustable barrel saddles.  Bridge cover is missing.  4-ply tortoise pickguard is in great shape with no cracks.  Finger-rest is missing.  Bass weighs 8 lbs 15.4 oz.

Pickup:  Original split single coil with grey bottoms.  Pickup cover is missing. Master volume & tone controls with knurled knobs. Both pots date to '73. All electronics are original & in perfect working condition.

Case:  Original hardshell case included.


Why We Love Fender

It's hard to find a name more synonymous with guitars than Fender. Ever since Leo Fender burst onto the scene with his now-iconic Telecaster, Fender guitars have found homes in the hands of brand new guitar players and seasoned rock stars. When the headstock says Fender, you know you're getting a quality instrument.
