❌ 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.

❌ SOLD ❌ 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.

Price: $6350 CAD
