    I have a pearl white American Fender Precision Bass for sale with original hard case. The serial number indicates that it was made between 1977-78. The serial number on the headstock had been "damaged" at some point and written back in correctly. I suppose it may have been stolen at some point but as for myself and the previous two owners possession is legitimate.

    It has EMG passive p-bass pickups in it but I have the original pickups to go with it. It has a Kahler 7440-CX bridge in place of the original and the post on the G string tuning machine has been replaced. I also fashioned a thumb rest since the original was missing. Other than that it is original as best I can tell. It sounds and plays great so it sells as a player not a collector obviously.

    This bass has definitely earned it's keep over the 35 years so you might call it "road worn" in the truest sense. I have plenty more pics of it I can email if you are interested. I will post more when I am able.

    I am not accepting trade offers, sorry. I will have to weigh it when I get home. I am guessing at just under 11 pounds.

    Does that bridge need different holes than the original bridge?

    More pics of bridge mounting holes under Kahler bridge. Red circles indicate holes used by current bridge
