    All original 1971 Fender Precision bass.

    This bass plays great. Action is perfect and can be set very low. No scratch to the pots.
    Light at 8.8 lbs w/o the ash trays
    Original case & it has the original keys and working locks. part of the er in fender is missing from the top of the case.
    A great bass, but I have to move it.

    It has some wear, but not bad for its age. Some buckle rash on the back and a few dings on the front and head stock. I tried to capture everything in pics. The ash trays are original and the bridge cover even still has the foam in it. The truss rod functions properly and is still almost flush with the heel. A little rust forming on the pup cover, see pic. I will let the pictures do the talking from here….

    $3000 Shipped
    Sorry but US only.

    '71 P-bass—yes, one of the best years of the early CBS-era. I love mine! Never for sale.
    This one here looks very sleek, with no significant finish issues! Bump-0h-La.
