Instrument Categories: , , , ,

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. 

This Fender Precision Bass Maple neck has a serial number dating it into 1975, the CBS period, and its pot codes show that those parts were produced during 1974. This bass is in original condition except for a wiring update. Strung with flat wound strings, it plays well and has relatively light fret wear, considerably less than if it had been strung with round-wounds. The finish is in overall decent shape, though it has a number of small dents as honest play wear. The neck finish is in good condition, with only light wear to the treble edge below the seventh fret.

The original rectangular Fender hard shell case is included.
