    That looks like a bass taken off the showroom floor in 1966.
     
  5. I hate those guys who waste space on these threads with, "OMG, IF I ONLY HAD THE MONEY, etc, etc, etc."

    But, OMG, if I only had the money....

    That, sir, is a real beauty.

    I'd really love to see a video of you playing this. You're a great player on the Foderas, would be awesome to hear you on this amazing P.

    Great bass! The guys at Elderly are amazing too, bought a 1973 Fender P from them years ago and they didn't disappoint.

    I'm no historian or vintage homer but that is a beautiful piece of gear. Probably the finest I've ever seen on the market.


    Best of luck.

    Oh my, I had one just like this that I bought new in 1966 for $195.00 with a hard shell case! Looks like it could be the same bass.....

    SWP 1966 edit.
