Hey gang!

 

Time for a change around, following the return of an old flame to my collection.

 

Here's a beautiful, resonant 1971 Precision bass. Light weight (c. 8lbs 3oz), balances perfectly.

 

Neck is straight and strong, with a B profile.

 

What's not original:

- Old refin over what seems to be factory black.

- Wiring harness and pots are period-correct replacements by the legendary Dave Wilson

- Pickguard is a repro

 

What is original:

Everything else!

 

It has the usual amounts of scuffs and dings for a '71 - in particular, there's some significant lacquer discoloration along the underside of the neck. All of this is cosmetic - there's nothing structural.

 

Comes with substantial non-original hard case and bridge / pickup covers.

Inspection welcome - COLLECTION ONLY.

Think this beauty should have a bump - also, a quick compliment on your nice playing on Cosmic Girl, wot, not seen you grooving like that before - suits you sir :D

I missed that. I think from watching @wateroftyne's video clips down the years I could probably play the tunes from memory he usually uses ... so cosmic girl was a bit of a shock. It will be the maple fretboard that brings the grooving...

Well that's very kind, gents. My purple crushed velvet suit remains in the wardrobe for now...
