    Up for sale is a really unique bass. It is an original 1969 Fender Precision Bass in original Sonic Blue. Sonic Blue was a custom color and very few were made in the 1960's. It was completely a custom order back then. This bass is sonic blue from the factory, thus highly limited in the amount produced. I had this bass appraised at Mandolin Brother's in Staten Island, NY several years back and the owner of Mandolin Brothers stated he had never seen one in person, that is how insanely hard it is to find an original sonic blue Fender from the 60's. The bass will also include the appraisal from Mandolin Brother's.
    This is the appraisal from Mandolin Brothers:
    Neck stamped: 5 543 129B
    Pot Codes: 1376642 - dating them the 42nd week of 1966
    Serial Number: 280869 - Dating the bass between 1968-1969
    Bridge is original
    input jack is original
    pickup is original grey bottom
    pickguard is original
    knobs are original
    Body Finish is original nitro-cellulose Sonic Blue
    Frets are original
    Tuners are original
    String Tree is original
    Bridge and Pickup covers are original
    Nut has been replaced
    They classified this bass as in excellent condition

    This bass is truly unique. It is currently strung with TI Flats and plays and sounds as you would imagine a 1969 Fender P to.

    Bass will be sent tracked, insured, and direct signature will be required. Payment via paypal. Local pick up of course is welcome. I understand this is a really special bass and please PM as many questions as you need. Thank you for looking and have a blessed day.

    Open to best offers! Big price drop!

    Who said post CBS Fenders were never going to amount to much!
    Really lied the way your sonic blue aged to a green tint.

    That is truly amazing. Unfortunately way out of my budget, but some friendly (and unsolicited I realize) advice: you should take it out and get some daylight photos if you can. Anyone who would be serious about buying would want that I would think. Good luck - my jaw is still on the floor!

    Sadly not in a position where I can make that happen. Life happens
     
  18. Very sexy bass!! I have a '69 P refin in Seafoam Green nitro that I just adore. I'd be heartbroken if I had to part with it.

    +1 to better photos, as that's what made me fall in love with & buy mine.
