    Hey guys

    Up for grabs is my beloved 1960 Precision Bass. All the tone, vibe, and mojo you would expect from a pre-cbs vintage fender. It is an absolute delight playing her, but I have some finances to cover in the near future, so it’s time she moves to a new home.

    I purchased this bass from Joey Landreth some time ago. It was his brother Dave’s bass, but Joey brokered the sale. It was used to record all the tracks on Joey’s “Whiskey” record, which has some of the tastiest guitar work you’ll hear IMO

    Here’s a Spotify link to the album.

    The body was sanded down and refinished in Olympic white at some point in its life. When it was redone, it was sanded down about 1/8 of an inch all around.

    Neck is straight and stable, low action, 1 3/4” at the nut, frets have a fair bit of wear.

    Aside from the refin, everything is original on this bass. (I am unsure about the pickguard). I don’t have the original case but a reunion blues aero will be included. Photos are from when I purchased the bass as noting has changed on it.

    This is a players bass for sure. Here’s a chance to have a coveted piece of pre-cbs fender history that won’t cost you a collectors mint price.

    Reasonable offers accepted. Will split shipping costs with buyer, but will drive a good distance to meet up to avoid shipping it. Paypal accepted. Will ship once payment clears

    Partial trade plus cash considerations:
    Newer Moollon P bass with rosewood board
    Fender AVRI P bass with rosewood board

    If you have questions, feel free to reach out!

    Gorgeous! I’m going to say the pickguard isn’t original but that’s common. Do you happen to know the weight?

    Thanks! My gut says the pick guard is aftermarket, but the person I purchased the bass from didn’t confirm or deny. I’ll get you a bathroom scale weight tomorrow. :thumbsup:

    The pickguard is vintage, but it’s the late ‘60s-early ‘70s style/pattern/color.

    You can buy an accurate hand-held digital luggage scale on eBay or Amazon for less than ten bucks shipped. Great for weighing basses.

    8.0 lb flat on my bathroom scale. The body on this one is super light!

    Sweet! Guessing the pots and cap are also late 60s, possibly even came with the pickguard. ;-)

    Not necessarily. Tough to see pot codes and cap could be .01 ceramic which I believe is correct.
