Maybe the most recorded bass of all time, its no wonder why players and collectors alike LOVE a good Precision Bass. Thumpy and forward low-end with a nice tonal body makes for an instrument that can sit forward in the mix of nearly band, or blend into the rhythm section. Vintage Fenders like this one dating to Feb '66 always carry a certain mojo leaving the player immediately inspired.
This P Bass plays great, with even low action, a straight neck, nice clear pickup, and weighs in at 8.5lbs. It would be an excellent contender for anyones Fender collection or for the right player.
Cosmetically, this bass has expected finish wear & dings - Mostly on the bottom edge by the strap button, and maybe most visible on the back of the treble side horn & thumb area above its 3-ply tortoise guard. Some finish wear is present under the strings between the pick guard and the bridge. All original electronics & hardware are present - tuners, pickup, tug-bar, pickup & bridge cover.
The neck is straight with low action, but does show some expected checking towards the heel and in the headstock (mostly visible on the back side). It has a 1 23/32" nut width, and the neck measures .83" thick at the first fret and 1" thick at the twelfth. The string spacing is 19mm. The stamp on the butt of the neck indicates that this would be a wider "C" profile.
Comes with the original black rectangular hardshell case with blue fur lined interior.
