SOLD. 1971 Precision with A neck.


Recommended Posts

Fabulous 1971 P bass with the rare A width neck. Bought on this forum from the super helpful Yannick aka @Hoochand still in the same condition. All original bar refret, new nut and cavity shielding which Yannick had done.  Very light bass (8.4 pounds) and plays slickly with LaBella 760 light flats. Selling as I am happier playing a Jazz bass these days (love my AVRI 62 RI). Was after essentially what I paid including import costs/VAT (it came to me from France) but will take a near 15% cut to get it moved on.


Collection south of Hammersmith Bridge or post at cost. UK-only after some post-Brexit horror stories (2 of which I have been involved in - 1 of which was getting this very bass from Yannick in France!) Will come in a very rudimentary (but protective) non Fender hard case and will be very well packed.


No trades, unless its an all-original early 1970s Jazz in 3TS/rosewood that weighs no more than 9 pounds (not many of them around, so highly unlikely ...)

Yeah it was quite the journey to go from France to UK, six weeks or so to cross the boarder and be delivered. Not a comfortable situation for both of us for sure, but we did what could be done and patience finally was a virtue.


And this Precision rocks ! GLWYS Mark

Thanks Yannick.


TBH, I am not awfully bothered if it doesn't sell as I think the rarity of an early 70s P bass with an A neck will mean its a good long term investment. Its simply the fact that I am not playing it (and that I am really loving my Jazz) that has led me to put it up FS - and maybe this is the bass of someone's dreams? If the time is not right, I am happy to put it back in its case and see if if I come around to this at a later date :D
