❌SOLD❌ Fender ‘Sting’ Precision Bass Reissue Sunburst, 2010

❌SOLD❌ Fender 'Sting' Precision Bass Reissue Sunburst, 2010

The Fender ‘Sting’ Precision Bass was issued between 2001 and 2013, built in Japan and reproducing the 1953 Precision bass used by Sting on recordings and tours with The Police.
Introduced in 1951, the Fender Precision bass is a landmark instrument, and influenced the way that music is performed and presented. Easily and consistently providing a precise pitch – hence the ‘Precision’ name – was a new concept for bassists, who all used upright, acoustic fretless instruments. And not only was the pitch predictable, the bass was portable!

❌SOLD❌ Hofner 1961 Cavern Bass 500/1 Left Handed Sunburst, 2015

The Hofner 1961 Cavern bass was very popular in Europe during the late 1950s and early 1960’s. American built instruments were rare and expensive, and use by wildly successful bands such as The Beatles made everyone want one. At the time, the tiny Cavern Club in London was one of the key venues for aspiring bands to appear, and The Beatles played there so often the club name became closely associated with the band.
