Description

What makes this bass special:  100% original with killer tone & a bad ass vibe!  This righteous P-Bass has that perfect look & feel we all love in a true vintage Fender.  Professionally inspected & set up by our own luthier, so it plays & sounds fantastic!

Cosmetic Condition:  Good honest play wear - just the way we like 'em - various nicks, chips, dents & dings; surface scratches, buckle rash & some finish wear.  Overall the bass has a great look to it with a nice patina.

Neck:  Nicely rounded maple neck with black side-dots.  Beautiful dark rosewood fingerboard with mother of pearl dot inlays.  Frets are in great shape with hardly any wear & plenty of life in them.  Headstock logo is in great shape - very clean with no bits missing.  Nickel Fender tuners are in perfect working condition.  1 5/8" nut width; 34" scale length.  Neck is straight & truss rod is in good working condition.  Neck dates to '73.

Body:  Contoured, solid alder body in original Walnut finish.  The neck/body connection is very tight.  Top-loading bridge with four adjustable "barrel" saddles & original bridge cover.  3-ply black pickguard with finger-rest.  The guard shows some pick wear & has a crack down by the input jack.  Bass weighs 9 lbs 1.4 oz.

Pickup:  Original split single coil dates to '73 with original cover.  Master volume & tone controls with knurled knobs - both pots date to '73.  All electronics are in perfect working condition.

Case:  Original hardshell case included - in similar condition to the bass.


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.
