    1972 Precision with heavy mojo. This bass has been played a ton and it shows, the good ones get played. Original frets are worn down but have been professionally leveled and have some life left. Bridge seems to be original. Pickguard is Fender replacement, pickup is Seymour Duncan SPB-1, tuners are original. The finish is heavily worn, it is worn all the way down to the wood in some spots so I applied some clear guitar finish just to seal the wood in the worst spots. I wanted to keep the vintage worn look but didn't want flakes of finish coming off the bare wood so it is sealed and good to go. Apparently the original owner was named Kenyon because he etched his name on the bridge and other chrome parts(neckplate, 1 tuner) to mark it. Tons of mojo here. Neck is very strait and bass is nice and light and well balanced, truss works perfectly and plenty of room in both directions. Bass weighs 8lbs 10oz on my postal scale. Dunlop strap locks installed, fresh set of DR Hi Beams 45-105 installed. Very cool bass. Comes with Generic hardshell case.
    Here is what is original: neck, body, tuners, frets, bridge, knobs, (have original strap buttons). Neckplate.
    Here is what is not original: nut, pickup, pots, pickguard.
    Also included is the pickguard that came on the bass when I bought it from Elderly a few years ago, it's more of a red tort, the pots that came in it I believe are from 2004. The original strap buttons, the pickup that came with it(looks to be a Fender but it is not a 70's pickup and it does not work.
    I also will include an aged bridge cover that looks great on it.
    Bottom line, I need $1250 in my pocket after shipping and fees, I will not take less for this bass because it's the real deal, it's light, the truss rod is working perfectly and the neck is strait and true. In fact everything works perfectly on this bass but it obviously looks rough because it has been played a lot, that is what it is designed to do. This is not a collectors bass it's a player's bass. I am not interested in trades. I ship to lower 48 USA only.

    No I do not, I have the pickup it came with that is not a original 1970's pickup, looks to be a 80's or 90's Fender replacement, it stopped working so I had the Duncan put in. I can include that if you like. Here are pics of it
