    Hey guys,
    Up for sale is an all original amazing 1962 fender precision bass!
    It's all stock except the body had 2 routs : (
    1.a j bass pickup.
    2.another rout under the pickguard for extra room for battery.
    Both routs we're professionally filled and painted over - the body was NOT over sprayed, the only areas painted carefully we're the routs areas and now you can't even see it :)
    Bass is very light weight, with huge sound and lots of lows and clarity only a 1962 p bass has.
    Bass weights 8.7 LBS.
    ~ Body paint, pickups, bridge, pots, pickguard, pickguard shield, knobs, bridge cover.
    ~ Neck is 100% original slab board ! original finish, pencil date, tuners, decal and frets.
    ~ Bass comes with it's original hard shell case.
    Not original:
    ~ Body routs ( we're filled )
    ~ Pickups metal cover, but still there and looks great.
    I know these basses are very expensive, and I'm also aware that the routs knocks the price down a little.

    I'm interested in either a full trade or trade plus cash or just cash.
    Any vintage instruments, guitars and basses, studio equipment.

    Make me an offer i can refuse ; ) !

    Wow. This one should be in the "Distressed Finish Basses" thread.
    I like it.

    That just may be just a wee bit too much mojo.

    That's exactly what this bass deserves.
    I hope it would find a warm home soon : )
    I'm open to trades of any vintage instruments, guitars and basses, studio equipment.

    Got some pretty interesting trades and offers.
    But the bass is still available : )
  12. Why is the headstock so clean for such a well worn bass? Has it been refinished? Any bass half that old and half that worn will normally have dents on the edges of the headstock. Could you please show a pic of the butt of the neck too.

    Thats because the body came from a different 1962 precision bass, all the parts were on a refin body, then i bought the white body and sold the refin body.

    Original bridge cover and knobs and they look fairly new. The folks using muratic acid to relic bass hardware should take note.
  15. It would be great to see the neck stamp.

    Great looking bass. Seriously.

    However, you should have mentioned this critical info upfront in your discription. This dramatically impacts the value of this bass.

    Thank you :)
    I disagree, from my personal experience, on those days ( the 60's ) the Fender factory wasn't very well organized and never kept records and dates on all of their products, I've ran into many vintage instruments that were all original from the factory and had a 1966 body, with 1967 dated pickups and a 1966 neck etc...
    I knew the body i bought was from 1962, not 63 or 64, thats the reason i bought it.
    That being said, you're entitled to your opinion : )
