    Hi Everybody, I’m about to put up for sale a 1961 Precision Bass for an Ill friend of mine. He’s owned it since 1975 and it’s in excellent all original condition. Before I list it I need to be sure that it is for sure a 1961 Fender Precision Bass. Can anyone tell me if there’s a way to date it without taking the neck off. The owner says it’s never been takin apart and is really opposed to putting a screwdriver to it. Any help would be much appreciated . Thank you.

    You probably sold it at this writing so it doesn't really matter. You said 1961. That pretty much says it all. However did owner get original bills of sale? Otherwise gotta take neck off, look on the end for the size, the month and year.
  3. Should be OK. The poster is just asking how to date the bass, not it’s value.
