Fender Precision Bass Maple Neck Black, 1975

Fender Precision Bass Maple Neck Black, 1975

Here we have a handsome, almost all original, Fender Precision Bass Maple neck built at the CBS/Fender Fullerton plant in 1975 – the pot codes date to 1974. First appearing in October 1951, the Fender Precision bass was a brilliant piece of industrial design. This innovation brought modern influences to the bass world – such as the ability to reliably and consistently produce a precise pitch, and to play at any volume without feedback. Quickly adopted, the Precision Bass was updated in 1954 to visually match the new Stratocaster, and has been in production with really only minor modifications since then.   The P-Bass is arguably one of the most functionally successful bass instruments ever built, having appeared on more recordings and stages than any other bass.

Fender Telecaster Maple Neck Black, 1978

Fender Telecaster Maple Neck Black, 1978

The Fender Telecaster Maple Neck has been built without interruption since 1951, though models dating to 1950 used the name ‘Broadcaster’. The concept is simple yet was revolutionary, immediately appealed to countless guitarists and prompted many advances in musical technology. Here we’re looking at a Fender Telecaster Maple Neck with a black Polyester finish, worn enough through use to have exposed blonde and clear sealer finish undercoats. At the time, if Fender had orders for colours not in stock, they would re-finish a body. For example, this guitar’s body may well have originally been Blonde, and over-sprayed black before assembly and shipment.

Drawing from a standard model, the Fender Jeff Beck Stratocaster features an Alder body and Maple neck with Rosewood fingerboard.  However, in the interests of stage performance and tuning stability, this model also features locking (Sperzel) tuners, an LSR Roller nut, two-point trem and hot Noiseless pickups.

Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley MIJ, 1987

Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley MIJ, 1987

Here’s something special! Not a reissue but an original, the Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley was built in Japan from 1985 to 1987 while Fender had no guitar production in the USA. The Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley model was unique to this era though during 1968, Fender built a Paisley Telecaster. The finish uses a foil layer on top of the body wood and covered with a polyester sunburst layer. This Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley model dates to 1987 and was built for Fender Japan by Fuji-Gen at Matsumoto, Nagano. It’s in good clean condition though it has definitely been played, as evidenced by the fingerboard wear.

Fender 1953 Precision Bass Blonde

Fender 1953 Precision Bass Blonde

Here is a real treat – a Fender 1953 Precision Bass, an early example of one of the most influential instruments ever built. The revolutionary introduction of the solidbody and fretted Precision Bass allowed bassists to follow guitarists in accuracy of pitch and precision tuning, and also in the area of stage volume through amplification without feedback. Without this innovation, we probably wouldn’t have gone to arenas or festival grounds to see incredibly loud artists.
