F/S Fender Precision Special Deluxe "Cowpoke" Made in Mexico
As I have been searching for that "just right" bass, I have accumulated a few too many and need to thin the herd, clear up some space and maybe fund my next adventure. I have two basses for sale. See other ad.
#2 Fender Precision Special Deluxe "Cowpoke" Made in Mexico, this bass is super versatile with the P/J pickups and the pre-amp you can get just about any sound you like. The neck is more like a a Jazz Bass, thinner and narrower than typical P-Bass. Cowpokes got the nickname because the pick guard was an unusual shape that looked like the decorations on country western shirts. The previous owner had made a few cosmetic mods that are really the only flaws on this instrument. He had added chrome pickup and bridge covers which are now gone. He drilled holes for these which he "filled" or patched less than perfectly. He also cut a small notch out of the pick guard to fit around the cover. When I took the pick guard of I noticed it had been broken in half and glued back together. I took it off and just put new screws and contoured washers into the holes. There is also a hole drilled into the bottom horn as if it had a strap mount for a lefty? Also there is a round hole hole about 1/2" wide and 1/2" deep that would be hidden by the pick guard. I have no idea what it was there for, but by the looks of the finish, it seems to be the way it came. If anybody knows what this is, I like to know. There is a small patch of buckle rash on the back. Despite all of the above it really looks pretty good. It definitely plays great. It has been set up beautifully, good action, no buzz frets and stays in tune forever. Includes your choice of a semi-hard generic case that is brand new or a Fender tweed hardshell case, that has been dyed or painted black, $350 + the shipping of your choice. I will deliver within 50 miles or so of the S.F. Bay Area for free.
I also have a USA G&L L-2000 in another listing.
