Very original 1966 Fender Precision bass. Stripped and refinished at some point in the 70s, it was originally sunburst. Neck date is 5th October ’66, one of the last CBS transition basses (F stamp neck plate, but unstamped tuners).
Pickup has one grey bottom, one black bottom, pencil dated May ’67 which is a bit of an oddity, but not the first time i've heard of it. Scratch plate, pick ups, hardware are all original. Pots that came with the base were terrible 70s ones (likely changed when it was stripped) that I replaced with new, but correct CTS taper pots using the original cap.
The untouched, worn-back neck is the best I've ever played on a bass, as you'd expect from something that's been played for over 50 years. Small ding at the 12th fret which is unnoticeable when playing.
My number 1 bass, with unbeatable playability and tone. Repro bridge and pick up covers and fender hard case included. Sensible inquiries only. Collection only, located in Worcester. No trades. No international sales. Any questions or try outs or anything at all, don't hesitate to give me a shout. Cheers!
Here is a Fender Precision Lyte in black sparkle with hard case. £450
Made in Japan. Looking online at the serial number, the date I think is 1991 - 92
These are very well made instruments . Nice and light weight and look great.
The neck is Jazz bass width - thin and fast. The action is nice and low.
There's a really good range of tones to be had with a precision pickup and jazz bridge pickup and an active preamp.
Active volume and tone for each pickup.
There are a few dings on the body and at the end of the headstock. - just to add to the mojo.
I'm in Malvern, Worcestershire and happy to meet up half way within reason.
Will post for £35 insured
Up for sale is my beloved Fender Roadworn P in Fiesta Red with Maple board. Currently wearing TI Flats. The pickups in these are really good and as such, the bass sounds great. I’ve had a few P’s in my time and this is the best I’ve had. Really nice condition.
Selling as I only play my Sadowsky at the moment and an impending vehicle purchase means I need to let this go.
No problem posting. I have the box my Sadowsky came in and will come with a serviceable Fender gig bag.
