1976 Sunburst Fender Precision Bass - Original - Reduced

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Up for Trade/Sale my 1975 Fender Precision.   The guitar is all original bar a recent refret.   A very good playing bass.  I won't bore you with flowery descriptions you all know what you are looking at.


  • 1975 Fender P Bass
  • Original throughout - Pick Ups, Pots, Bridge, Tuners
  • Just been restrung with Roto Sound Flat Wounds
  • Recent Refret
  • Original Case


  • Obvious wear to body
  • Small gouge/dent to rear of neck - doesn't effect the playing
  • Refret - Makes the bass less than 100% original
  • Case is heavily worn and marked though all the locks work as they should (no keys)

More pictures available - Any queries drop me a line.

Ideally would like to trade for a Fender Pro Junior Amp or 57 Tweed Champ - with cash adjustment either way.

Effects Pedals (I'm a sucka for them - Strymon - Analogman - D*A*M - Earthquaker Devices - W H Y

4 String Bass - W H Y


*** Following stripping the bass for requested additional pictures the pots date the bass to 1976 not 1975 as originally stated.   The neck feels very similar in profile to a Jazz.****  

  • 43mm at the Nut
  • Bass weighs a trim 9lbs on the trusty bathroom scales


** Reduced £1725 **

      Amazing bass that really does feel like a vintage bass.
      The flea bass comes with stacked pots which in my opinion are much better than the VVT controls fitted to most fender jazz basses.
      Comes with  fender gig bag.
      Social distancing collection possible, postage as buyers cost.

      Hi all,
      For sale only (no trades), my beautiful 1966 Fender Precision in fantastic condition, all original (as far as I am aware) with original finish and original Fender hard case (including Fender catalogue).
      This is a player’s bass, not a case queen, but has been extremely well cared for by previous owners as well as by me.
       It has light signs of wear and some dings as you’d expect a 54 year old to have. I’ve gigged the bass extensively in the time I’ve owned it and always kept/transported it in a Hiscox LiteFlite case, not the OHSC.
      Apart from some minor body chips and scratches there are a couple of small dents in the neck behind frets 1-3 but these aren’t noticeable under the hand. There’s also some lovely light checking to the lacquer on the headstock and rear of the body. I’ve tried to capture these as best I can with my phone camera.
      Pups, pots, wiring and solder joints all look all original. The pups are still bonded to the black foam and backing plate. No dating is evident and I didn’t want to risk separating them to try and find out.
      Pots are stamped 6618 which I believe is week 18 of 1966 (kindly correct me if I’m wrong).
      The date stamp on the neck is partially faded and obscured by red ink but this is how it was when I bought it. To my eyes it reads 5 MAY 66 C. The neck is classic P chunky, solid and straight with a fully functioning truss rod and reverse tuners on the headstock.
      Beautiful striping on the rosewood fingerboard and there’s plenty of life left in the slim frets. The bass is currently strung with LaBella flats.
      Comfortably light, on the digital bathroom scales it comes in at 8.6 lbs / 3.9 kg.
      The case has a few dings and a couple of smallish rips but inside is clean and plush and all catches and hinges function (I don’t have the keys though). It came to me with a 1967-68 Fender catalogue inside which is in lovely condition and a really nice piece of history.
      This is a beautiful example of a mid-60’s P bass with a classic full burpy sound that sits so well in the band mix.
      Now... I know there are some real vintage aficionados and experts on the forum so in the spirit of openness and honesty I want to mention 3 things;
      Control knobs. These are more than likely the originals but still look brand new. I have no way of knowing as these were the knobs it came to me with but I am just saying as someone pointed it out to me.
      Ashtrays. Both are in really good clean condition and I believe are the originals. They show light scratching close up which doesn’t come out in the photos. Inside the bridge cover there is no evidence left of any foam mutes but there is some surface roughness in that area.
      E string tuner. Fully operational and stable but a bit stiffer than the other 3. I’ve had it apart and lubricated it, can’t see anything wrong, so it’s a bit better but wanted to point this out to potential buyers. 
      I’m offering this bass for sale only (no trades thank you) at a competitive price based on what I’ve seen similar condition basses advertised by reputable dealers.
      I’m happy to ship within UK only at the buyer’s expense or arrange personal socially-distanced collection within a reasonable radius (location KT18).
      No EU/overseas transactions due to CITES restrictions still in force around Brazilian rosewood.
      (More photos are available if needed).
      Many thanks for any interest!
