This is an Excellent playing 1968 Fender Precision Bass. This vintage bass has been well cared for. I am the 3rd owner, I purchased the bass in 1997. I haven't played it much because I have always been freaked out to bring it on gigs. It was professionally shielded, fret leveled, dressed and completely gone over in 1998. It restrung it with Thomastik flat wound strings in 2001 and it's been pretty much in it's case in a closet since. The truss rod works properly in both directions and the truss rod screw show hardly any travel (please see picture). The original pickup had a buzzing sound when my thumb rested on the pole piece when I bought the bass, I replaced it with an era correct true built and sounding Jake Jones pickup soon after buying the bass. The original pickup is included. The missing finish on the back of the body is from some genius gluing a piece of leather hide to the back of the bass. It was removed as carefully as possible and sealed with Warwick finish wax in 1998 when the bass was completely gone over. The bass weighs 8 lbs 5 oz and is strung with Thomastik JF344 Flatwounds. The original frets are in excellent condition(please see picture of the first position). The case latches and hinges all work properly, 2 of the bottom side chrome feet are missing (when the case is laying flat on its side) and the handle has been replaced.
Here's what I know is original to the best of my knowledge....
Alder body and sunburst finish
Flame maple neck/rosewood fingerboard and finish (1.645" nut width)
