A lovely example of a mid/late 70s fretless Precision, and at a sensible weight, just 9.75 lbs.

The 3-Tone Sunburst is really crisp, and the black p/g works well with it (even though I'm personally a fan of tort with 3TS).

Rosewood fingerboard is completely unmarked, and has a delightful, mellow tone & feel. This is a very rewarding bass to play.

Similarly, the neck is unmarked and shows no wear at all.

Fender dates are notoriously ... erm ... imprecise, but this came to me as a 1976 while the serial number suggests either 1977 or 1978. I don't do the whole completely-dismantle-the-bass-and-photograph-the-bobbins thing, but if you buy the bass then you're welcome to come and dismantle it with me at my studio.

All in all, this is a lovely bass in pristine condition, and priced to sell.

The bass is in Harrow (NW London) and I am happy to deliver in person or meet halfway (depending on distance), doing so in a civically-responsible socially-distanced sort of way if you prefer.

Alternatively, I have appropriate boxes plus plenty of bubble-wrap available and I'm equally happy to post using DPD as courier.

Yes, but I have my eye on something a bit special, and the only way that I can justify (and afford) buying a lovely 4-string fretless is to ... erm ... sell a lovely 4-string fretless. 9_9

There's only one cure for GAS, and there's no use fighting it when you need a P.
