Fender Precision Bass Black Refinish, 1959

Fender Precision Bass Black Refinish, 1959

This vintage Fender Precision Bass built during 1959. It’s been used as intended and has played countless shows around Ontario, Canada – attested to by the stickers on the original tweed case. Somewhere in the dim and distant past, the alder body’s original finish was removed and a black finish was applied. The refinish itself has an amount of honest play wear. The neck is the standard one-piece Maple Fender design, and its finish is original, with the smooth wear and patina that only comes from decades of use.

Godin A5 Fretless 5-String Bass Natural 2006

Godin A5 Fretless 5-String Bass Natural 2006

The Godin fretless 5-string Bass body is made of two pieces of silver leaf maple, chambered and capped with spruce. The neck bolts on, and uses rock maple plus an ebony fingerboard on the fretless version. The Fretted version gets a rosewood fingerboard. The bridge matches the fingerboard, and on this older example uses an acoustic-guitar style pin bridge. Godin is very well acquainted with using piezo pickups and have devised a very usable and unobtrusive control layout next to the fingerboard. Access to the battery for the preamp is on the back.

Fender Precision Bass Sunburst 1966

Fender Precision Bass Sunburst 1966

Here, we have a very nicely preserved Fender Precision Bass, with a neck stamp reading 5 OCT 1966 C. This bass appears to be in largely original condition, even with the pickup and bridge covers and finger rest. There is some belt buckle wear on the back, but otherwise the finish is in very good condition considering its age. It’s lost some of its gloss and gained a soft patina. The decal is in very good condition – often these dried out and flaked. The plating is mostly worn off the volume control knob, but the tone knob didn’t seem to get quite as much use.

SOLD!!! Rickenbacker 4004Cii Cheyenne Bass FireGlo, 2008

SOLD!!! Rickenbacker 4004Cii Cheyenne Bass FireGlo, 2008

The Rickenbacker 4004Cii is a bass we don’t see very often. Built using largely American farm-grown sustainable woods, this bass uses a body of Maple with Walnut core, and an Eastern Maple neck with a Bubinga fingerboard, running the length of the instrument. The 4004Cii Cheyenne uses the classic Cresting Wave body shape originally designed by Roger Rossmeisl in the late 1950’s, and still vibrant and evocative today.

SOLD!!! Alexander James Jazz Tribute Bass, Wenge and Maple, 2013

SOLD!!! Alexander James Jazz Tribute Bass, Wenge and Maple, 2013

Alexander James hand-builds guitars and basses at his shop in Peterborough, Ontario. He specializes in using exotic woods to achieve specific tones. He has been building since 2002, and has operated Alexander James Guitars since 2008. This bass is in very good condition with very little wear – especially to the stainless steel frets, which should last a very long time. The finish is a natural oil, and shows off the grain nicely. This bass does have a bit of heft at over 11 pounds, but has lots of sustain, top end and bite, yet still has a warm roundness to the tone. A hard shell case is included.
