For sale only.
1968 Sunburst Fender Precision in excellent playing condition.
I bought this bass in the late '90's from Ed McCabe of McCabes Music in Ventura California. Ed was selling it for his friend who was the original owner. The butter bean tuners looked too good to be true but Ed assured me that they came on the bass when his friend originally bought it. When I bought the bass the original split pickup made a slight ground noise when I rested my thumb on the top pole piece so I had Jake Jones make a replacement to the exact specs and ohms, it sounds beautiful and the original pickup is included with the sale. The pickup was installed, the body's electronic cavities were shielded, a fret level, crown, dress and setup was done by Glade Rasmussen. It was set up with TI flat wound strings. The frets are in outstanding shape.
It's wonderful playing, light weight 8 1/2 lb bass that has been in its case, closet kept in my smoke free home. It hasn't been played much since 2002, I'm freaked out to bring it on a gig. Here's more about the bass.....
