I just pulled the trigger on the bass of my dreams (an Alembic Exploiter) so in order to make room (and pay for it) this beauty has to go.... This is the real deal. A '73/'74 transition Precision with the coveted "A" neck, but with a rosewood board in a beautiful 3T 'burst. I bought this from Kevin Borden (Kebo's Bass Works) and this is how he described it when I bought it... Fender Precision 1973 A-neck!!! Kebos Gold Certified A really nice SB/RW A-NECK Pbass that is a 73/74 transition. Nice 8.8 lbs, 513xxx sn, 7331 harness that had a cold ground wire heated up, long g-bridge, 01014223 neck (Pbass, rw, 42nd week, 1972, Wed), get this the bass has the rare but no-doubt original 70s black bobbins that had the yellow date stamp with original wire, leads, windings, etc. and again this is guaranteed real deal. Bass shows mild wear and is in great shape. The case is a late 70s Fender hardshell road case. What a great bass! I have only made three changes to the bass since this description. First, I had a tort pickguard custom made to give the bass a more vintage look. The original black pickguard will also be included. The black pickguard does have the tip broken off down by the input jack...which is not uncommon with the older P-bass guards. Second, I now have the bass in a Fender G&G Tweed case....which of course will be included. Third, I installed Dunlop strap locks, but the original strap buttons will be included. You will love this bass. It's light, plays like a dream, and it's in great condition. The neck has absolutely no issues (in fact the back of the neck is flawless), truss rod works like it should (and is currently flush with the heel), and the frets are in terrific shape. If you are looking for a collector and a player, this is the bass for you. Price is [DEL]$2500 shipped [/DEL] (SEE BELOW FOR NEW PRICE) to the lower 48....payment via PayPal or a USPS Money Order. I'd certainly consider shipping it out of the U.S., so feel free to contact me for a shipping quote. Sorry, no trades...I need the cash for the Alembic. Just let me know if you have any questions.
