New Limelight 00302 '66 Slab Precision bass - POA

New Limelight 00302 ’66 Slab Precision bass
This new Limelight is based on the 1966 Slab bass.
The 1966 Fender Slab Precision was originally ordered by Barrie Midford-Millership as a special commission to Fender USA to his own specification. It proved so popular it led to Fender launching the Telecaster Bass a few years later. Barrie has written an extensive book all about it called “The Mighty Hybrid and The Keeper of the Slabs” and is an very interesting read.
This bass has the usual high-end Limelight features, including nitro-cellulose finish to the body and the neck, tusq nut, black dots, hand rolled fingerboard edges CTS pots, switchcraft Jack socket, Gotoh tuners etc. The metal work is just lightly tarnished.
You can already see the grain of the wood through the finish in certain lights, and this will continue to sink into the grain over time to further improve the looks.
Lovely low action, plays beautifully and fitted with Rotosound  SM66 Swing bass string, 40 – 100.
A hard case can be supplied at cost if required.
