Cosmetic Condition: Why buy a Custom Shop Relic when you can have the real deal - various nicks, chips, dents & dings; scratches, weather checking & finish wear. This was obviously the previous owner's go-to bass & it shows. But what a great look with an authentic vintage vibe & gorgeous patina.

Neck: Maple neck with some really nice flame figuring. Beautiful Brazilian rosewood fingerboard with clay dot inlays. Frets are in good condition with plenty of life in them. Single string tree with transition headstock logo. Rear headstock strap button & open-back nickel tuners in perfect working condition. 1 11/16" nut width; 34" scale length. Neck is straight & truss rod works fine. Neck stamp reads 5 AUG 64 C.

Body: Contoured, solid alder body finished in Candy Apple Red. Top-loading bridge with four adjustable saddles & original bridge cover. 3-ply mint green pickguard is in great shape with no cracks & has its original black finger rest. Bass weighs 8 lbs 14.4 oz.

Electronics: Original split single coil pickup with original cover - 10.17K ohms. Master volume & tone controls with knurled knobs. Pots date to '64 & all electronics are in perfect working condition.

Case: Original white tolex 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.
