❌SOLD❌ Fender Precision Bass Sunburst, 1959

❌SOLD❌ Fender Precision Bass Sunburst, 1959

This is an exceptional treat – a Fender Precision Bass Sunburst dated to January of 1959, with the original tweed case, possibly original but certainly period strap, and brought in with the 1957 Fender Bassman amp (sold separately) the owner used in a band called the “Down Unders”. Leo Fender introduced the Precision Bass in 1952, following the lead of the very successful Telecaster line. The use of the term ‘Precision’ in the name refers to the addition of frets to the bass. Until this time, bass players used fretless upright basses, and so pitches could vary from time to time.

The Fender Jazzmaster 65 is part of the American Vintage series, and this 2014 model is dressed in a custom Ice Blue Metallic with matching headstock! Introduced in 1958, the Jazzmaster was aimed directly at Gibson’s market – jazz players who wanted the extra warmth of a rosewood fingerboard, and lower output and mellower, or less bright, pickups.

❌ SOLD ❌ Fender Precision Bass Black Refinish, 1959

❌ SOLD ❌ 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.
