A fantastic player's grade '71 P-Bass that won't bust your wallet. The original finish was stripped off down to natural some time ago & the original pickups were replaced with really great sounding Lollars. A nice, true vintage beauty looking for a new home.
Cosmetic Condition: Mild play wear considering its age - various small nicks, chips, dents & dings; surface scratches & some light finish wear. Again, the original finish was removed from the body, which now has a really cool caramel color to it.
Neck: Nicely rounded & very comfortable maple neck with black side-dots. Beautiful, dark rosewood fingerboard with mother of pearl dot inlays. Frets show some wear, but have plenty of life in them. The neck was not refinished & still maintains its original headstock decal which is in great shape. Original Fender open-back tuners in perfect working condition. 1 5/8" nut width; 34" scale length. Neck is pretty straight with just that typical slight hump up around the 15th fret or so, but it plays well & the truss rod functions fine.
Body: Contoured, solid alder body now in natural finish. Top-loading bridge with four adjustable "barrel" saddles. Bridge cover is missing. Original 4-ply tortoise pickguard is in great shape with no cracks & has its original black finger rest. Bass weighs 8 lbs 3 oz. - great weight!
Electronics: Unoriginal Lollar P-Bass split single coils - 10.38K ohms. Chrome pickup cover is missing. Master volume & tone controls with unoriginal dome knobs. Pots date to '71 & all electronics are in good working condition.
Case: Newer Fender 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.
