An awesome sounding, true vintage P-Bass with an ultra cool look to it & good honest play wear. The semi-chunky neck is very comfortable & plays great up & down the fretboard. The original pickups sound fantastic & deliver warm, rich tones with marvelous sustain. Professionally inspected & set up by the experts at Cream City Music, so it plays & sounds fantastic!
Cosmetic Condition: Good honest play wear with an authentic vintage look - various nicks, chips, dents & dings; scratches, weather checking & some finish wear. Overall the bass has a great vibe to it with a gorgeous patina.
Neck: Nicely rounded & somewhat chunky maple neck with black side-dots. Dark rosewood fingerboard with mother of pearl dot inlays. Original frets show a little bit of wear, but have plenty of life in them. Headstock decal is in great shape with no bits missing. Open-back nickel tuners are in perfect working condition. 1 5/8" nut width; 34" scale length. The nut is original & the neck stamp reads 5 NOV 70.
Body: Contoured, solid alder body finished in 3-tone sunburst. Top-loading bridge with four adjustable "barrel" saddles. Bridge cover is missing. 4-ply tortoise pickguard with original black finger rest. At some point the previous owner moved the finger rest to the bass side of the top & added a couple of screw holes, but it's now back in its original position. Bass weighs 8 lbs 5.7 oz.
Electronics: Original split single coil - 10.48K ohms. Pickup dates to '70. Master volume & tone controls with knurled knobs. The tone pot is unoriginal, however, the original is included. It was scratchy & was therefore replaced. Both original pots date to '70 & all electronics are 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.
