RARE ORIGINAL GOLD BODY FENDER PRECISION P Bass Vintage 1979
Body and Electronics are from a circa 1980 "Gold Series" made only one year. Gold is one of the coolest Fender colors ever and it looks even better than photos convey.
I prefer rosewood so replaced the wide maple neck and plain white pickguard with a Fender NECK 1979 (# S9 xxx) and the matching pickguard from that bass (sticker on bottom of pickguard w same ser # as neck). It is really the "best of two basses" in one and certainly "one of a kind". More so than a special order Custom Shop that would cost much more.
I also professionally gold plated the chrome parts. The knurled knobs show some wear but the rest of the Gold plating is very well done and looks excellent.
One of a kind. All period correct genuine Fender. Not only sounds great but has an amazing, fast playing neck. Not quite a jazz width but close. Dark rosewood almost black. SUPER PLAYER!
Hard case from the era. Maybe from a Ricky?
THIS WOULD BE A GREAT TOURING BASS. Vintage FENDER QUALITY AND AN APPEARANCE THAT YOU CAN BE PROUD OF. Great vibe and already "aged" 30+ years. Nice flatwound strings for a warm and buttery tone.
No Trades. Will Sell for $1,775 SHIPPED!
