What makes this bass special: On the hunt for a super cool Blackguard? Well look no further - this gorgeous '52 P-Bass would make the perfect addition to any player's collection. The one-piece maple neck shows off tons of stunning flame figuring all around it & plays like a dream no matter where you are on the fretboard. The slab body has that perfectly aged look with a great weight. Professionally inspected & set up by the experts at Cream City Music, so it's ready for action straight out of the case.

Cosmetic Condition: Good honest play wear with that ultra cool, true vintage look - various nicks, chips, dents & dings; scratches, weather checking & some finish wear. The lacquer was removed from the neck so it plays much more smoothly. Overall the bass has great vibe with a gorgeous patina.

Neck: One-piece maple neck with absolutely gorgeous flame figuring all over it. Black dot inlays & original frets still in great shape with very little wear. Single string tree & open-back nickel tuners in perfect working condition. 1 11/16" nut width; 34" scale length. Neck is straight & truss rod functions fine. Neck pencil date reads TG 7-15-52 with D stamp.

Body: Slab ash body in original blond finish. String-thru bridge with double "barrel" bakelite saddles. Bridge plate serial number reads 0397. Original bridge cover included, however, the screws are unoriginal Philips. Original bakelite pickguard & finger rest also with unoriginal Philips screws. Penciled in the neck pocket is Eddie with the date 7-3-52 & D stamp. Bass weighs 8 lbs 7.5 oz.

Electronics: Original single coil pickup - 6.18K ohms with original cover. Master volume & tone controls with knurled dome knobs. Unoriginal volume pot dates to '86, but the tone pot is original. All electronics are in perfect working condition.

Case: Original tweed hardshell case included. The case shows a bit of wear & tear, similar to the bass, but is all there.

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.
