1964 Fender Precision in Sunburst

All original, no modifications, no swap outs and no refrets. 

I purchased this from Andy Baxter Basses - I still have the original invoice in the case if you want to check it out for provenance etc. 

Neck date is showing October 1964 - this was likely assembled and finished late 1964. Showing an L-Series Serial Number. 

Brazilian Rosewood board, clay dots, reverse tuners. I'd say the pickup is a mid-range output for a bass of this date. Currently strung with Chromes. 

Action is low - just under 1.8mm top end to just over 2mm lower end. 

As with any bass of this vintage, it's the pictures that count.. I can take more if you want to see anything specifically. 

Comes with original case, and original bridge/pickup covers with screws. 

No Trades. No overseas shipments at all. 

As I'm out and about with work all over the place anyway (despite the current situation!) I will most likely hand deliver myself given the cost - but we can discuss.

£5500

I have always liked the look of this fabulous bass. Sadly  for me it is not a Jazz Bass.

The price is very reasonable. As with the other basses you have listed.

I'm surprised it has not sold yet.

I need a tissue now...

Neck looks in remarkable shape for a near 60 year old instrument!

Just a question. I am not sure but I was reading that type of logo (from headstock) is called "transition logo" and was made for 65/66 basses. Is that true? I am sure there are some experts here and can leave some comments about that. Thanks!

Beautiful bass!!!! 😍

The Transition Logo applied to most L series - it’s seen from late 63 to mid 66, but it depended on what stocks of older or newer labels they had in at the time. As mass produced instruments the dating by specific component can be quite difficult

Been there. They threatened to destroy it. That was no fun at all.

Lovely looking bass, great set of pics too, although none of it fully dressed!! 😉.

Good luck with the sale, not that you should need any!

Only for certain rosewood types. Brazilian is unaffected and still covered by CITES

How would they know it's Brazilian rosewood though? You could say it's a different type of wood... they would have no way to prove it.

If they suspect it’s up to you to prove not or it’s destroyed. They send samples off to check the grain - they can tell

I’m lucky enough to have a 64P (albeit not as original as this one), and in my case I can say that it is definitely ok to meet your heroes. They are the dream for a reason!
