1961 Fender Precision bass, all original and complete with exception of the case. (Brown Fender reissue) Sunburst finish over an Alder body, slab Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard with clay dots. It has a fantastic neck with a superb playing action and amazing tone.

The Sunburst finish is still very vibrant. There is some wear to the finish around the edges and a little buckle rash on the back of the upper horn and also some checking. The headstock is very clean, the finish on the back of the neck has mostly worn away leaving a very smooth feel. Serial number: 64213. Weight: 8lbs 8.5oz. The body dates 8/61. The neck dates 9/61, the two original pots date to the 20th week of 61. The pickups have black bobbins and original winds. The case latches still work but the case itself has seen better days and the ends are broken in a few places.

This bass is a joy to play with a superb even sound right across the fretboard, it has a straight neck, and the truss rod works as it should. The frets are in great condition. (presumably this bass has been strung with flats for most or all of its life) It's been fully set up with a set of flat wound strings. The neck is wide and slim in depth. Nut width: 43.29 mm. Depth at 1st fret 20.46mm The pickup reads 10.7 Kohms.
