1959 Fender Precision bass. It was recently refinished Sunburst and it looks superb. The lacquer has been lightly aged and a few scuffs added during the relic job. The original colour was Blonde which can still be seen in the neck pocket. The neck has not been refinished, the front of the headstock appears to have been blown over with clear lacquer. It has a lovely maple fingerboard with original frets, original Gold anodized guard, pickups and pots ( dated 1958)

This bass is absolutely fantastic. It's an amazing player with an incredible neck. Take a listen to the audio file, it sounds amazing. The hardware is all clean and original, the truss rod is fully functioning with no issues. There's some wear to fingerboard, frets 1 to 9. The frets show a little wear but nothing major.

Fully set up by my technician, it has a straight neck and a great action. Weight:8.4 lbs. Serial: 35016. The neck date is 4/59. The pots date to the 25th week of 58. Width at nut: 1.731" . At the 12th: 2.313" . Depth at nut 0.812". At the 12th: 1.015". Pickup ohms 12.43.
