    As part of my endless desire to own as many different basses possible (and having current GAS for a specific bass), I have decided to list this beautiful and light early 1970 Fender Precision bass. Finish is one of the rare sunbursts that has a painted on wood grain below the surface that happened between 66-70. Super light bass at 8.0 lbs. Crazy tort guard that’s a real one of a kind. Bass is very resonant, loud acoustically and is original except for a Lollar pup and a wireless harness. Bass comes with original pots and original pickup that has one coil not registering on the multimeter. There is 1 intonation screw that is unoriginal. It also has a pickguard screw that seems to be stripped down below the jack. It will slowly start creeping out but can be pushed back in.

    Neck has a slight ramp up in the last couple of fret area as most from this period seem to have. Neck is pretty much straight the rest of the way down, and the truss is flush with the heel. Totally fine as is based on my set up preferences, but I know some people want perfection. I just want to list everything I can think of in full disclosure. It is a 47 year old bass!

    If the bass I’m lusting after sells, I’ll most likely pull this add because I’d been looking for a while for a nice 70-71 P and found this 8.0 lb beauty. I just think I now prefer a C width neck as opposed to a B width.

    $2650 shipped PayPal. Not looking for trades unless you have a CS Precision with a C width neck or a AVRI Precision and cash.

    Pics are mix of previous owner and mine.
