    1965 Fender Precision. Refretted and refinished in 1990. Finish is an emerald green nitro-cell laquer. Original P pickup and DiMarzio "ultra jazz" in the bridge. Gold Schallers and a Hipshot "D- tuner". Strap locks... killer bass ... $5,000

    How is the truss rod on this bass? Is the neck straight? I was considering the bass in the link below, which is similar to yours, but has the original hardware:

    1965 Fender P-bass w/added jazz pickup

    Um, I guess it needs to play well at the end of the day, so sell me on this thump machine!

    Straight as an arrow. The truss rod is smooth and silky. The back of the neck is smooth as glass. The fingerboard is a light rosewood which I am told "Leo" did 200 of them before the CBS deal. The refret and refinish were done in 90. When I upgraded the bridge and machines because the originals were in bad shape. Go to YouTube.com and search Fretlessboy. There are a few videos with it.

    I'd suggest that you look at how other vintage ads for fenders are presented. You should probably take some shots of the neck pocket and heel showing dates, shots of the pots, wiring, etc. That may help stir interest.

    The pots and wiring aren't original. I also really don't want to take it splattered if I can help it

    I understand. I can tell you from experience that people looking to spend that kind of coin on a vintage fender will want up close proof of the date of manufacture.
