    All original 1977 Fender Precision bass. Setup nicely with new TI flats about 2-3 months ago. Photos are from previous seller (I will make some new photos on request as there is no difference in current condition). The neck and pot stamps photos are new.

    Rare sunburst with rosewood board. Tone is 70s, but also with nice warmth. Swamp ash body. Does have some copper shielding which keeps it nice and quiet.

    It is fairly light at about 8.6lbs. B shaped maple neck with 1.625" nut width, original pickups, tuners and pots. Original to the last screw. Comes in an original hard case with Fender logo.

    Listed on Reverb as well, but can only get this price at TB. Zelle or Venmo preferred. PP accepted. Shipping is $50 within CONUS.

    Reach out via PM for any questions.

  2. I had a '77 Precision, my first Fender, all black with a maple neck.

    Worth every penny.

    Wish I had the $$$...

    I have the same Bass with A little bit more wear on it. These Basses have a great feel and incredible tone. Someone will be very happy getting this Bass!

    I also have this exact bass, but with way more play wear on it!

    It's younger than mine by a week based on the neck stamp (50th week and mine is 51st week) and has the same pickup date codes also!

    Not too many rosewood necks in this era - GLWS!

    Got a ‘78 almost almost identical. That’s a beauty.

    Beautiful. I didn't know Fender used swamp ash back then (or ever for that matter).

    I have been told by multiple people (guitar techs, previous owner, etc.) that this bass has swamp ash body. Now, they could also be saying this due to weight of the bass, but the luthier I spoke to claims with confidence this is ash body.
