1977 Fender Precision Bass in natural with original case
A lovely original survivor Precision bass, in Natural complete with original case, manual, chrome cover and strap etc.
It has a bit of a story behind it. When I started my business I used to import basses from the USA as you could get $2 to the £1 then, so it was worthwhile, and I built up a few good contacts. Unfortunately, the exchange rate now makes this unviable.
This particular bass was one of the early ones I imported myself, probably in about 2007. It’s extremely good and all original. So good in fact, I kept it in my own personal collection for a while eventually selling to the owner of Manson’s Guitars. The condition is great, but this one also plays beautifully and has a particularly resonant, round tone, pure vintage P.
Manson’s eventually sold it on a few years later, and I bought the person they sold it to over 4 years ago. He’d kept it for about 10 years.
It also has its original case, with both chrome covers, the manual is also included and has the serial number sticker on the front which matches the one of the headstock and on the underside of the pickguard.
