Fender Precision USA ‘62 AVRI with OHSC 2003
North Staffordshire

Recommended Posts

Fender American Vintage ‘62 Re Issue (AVRI) Precision Bass built in the USA in 2003, all original & in excellent lightly used condition with just a few marks consistent with normal use, the ‘worst’ one I can find albeit with my old eyes is a small 4mm impact mark near the bridge (please see photograph) which is very shallow & can't be seen 'off stage' plus a tiny mark on the end of the headstock and so overall I would grade this as 9/10 in my humble opinion of course - especially for a Nitro finished 17 year old instrument.

Weight is a tad over 8.5 lbs according to my digital scales.

Nails the James Jamerson thing.
The Bass is set up with a nice low action and so plays really well, with a lovely true Precison Bass sound and excellent tonal variation.
Comes complete with the Original Hard Shell Case also built in the USA complete with all the Case Candy including the original Pickup and Bridge covers, which have never been fitted - so no holes in the body either side of the bridge - in fact, they are still sealed in the original bag from new. The case does have a few scuffs to the corners, but nothing major and comes complete with the two original keys - also still in a sealed bag.
Here is some info off T'interweb

This model has been discontinued. 

Today we are featuring a Fender American Vintage ’62 Precision Bass in a beautiful three tone sunburst. This reissue instrument pays homage to a ground breaking year for the Fender Precision Bass. All of the classic details are present including the rosewood fretboard, tortoise shell pickguard, nitrocellulose lacquer finish and chrome bridge and pickup covers. The covers are shipped unmounted but are included in the accessory kit.
The “C” shape neck is super smooth to play and the classic single split-coil pickup provides that warm, full and fat tone that you have heard on so many of your favourite records!!


Alder body
Tortoise pickguard
Maple neck
Rosewood fretboard
1.75″ nut width
34″ scale length
“C” shape neck profile
20 vintage style frets
Single Split-Coil pickup
Master Volume, Master Tone controls
Nickel and Chrome hardware
American Vintage 4 Saddle bridge
Vintage Style Reverse Tuning Machines
Deluxe Light Brown hardshell case with strap, cable and bridge and pickup cover in the accessory kit.

i would prefer Bank Transfer or Paypal F&F on collection, or prior to postage if someone has a reliable Courier they trust to send for it. I have a box and the case is built like a brick outhouse which would be well bubble wrapped also - UK Mailnland only.

Any questions, please give me a shout 👍👍....
