I am very close to closing the deal on a wonderful old 1962 Precision. From what I can see, it is nearly all-original, with the most worn finish I have ever seen/felt on one of these old basses. It looks like it's been stripped, but the finish is still in the cutaways and under the pickguard. I have been able to play the bass; it was strung to Eb and with roundwounds (I play flats exclusively and tune to standard); regardless, I was stunned with how resonant and punchy it was, even with strings and a setup I don't particularly care for. Bruce Thomas all the way. The action was low and very even all the way up the neck. Still, I have some reservations considering I have not owned a vintage Precision before. I have uploaded some photos of the nitty-gritty innards of the bass; can anyone tell me if they see anything I should be concerned about? Photos are here: http://www.johnbiscuti.net/1962 Thanks!
