    Hello all!
    I’ve decided to sell my 1968 P bass. The good news is, it’s only to go further down in the Fender years, as I’m going to make another purchase. I have a few, and I promised my wife if I dare buy another expensive bass, I’d sell one of my current basses to go towards it. So, hence, here we are!

    bass is lightweight 8.8 lbs. Original covers and 100% all original. The tuning pegs are almost like new! 2 owners in its 52 year history

    includes several really really cool case candy items too!
    The 1968 Fender product catalog and the original Fender price list!!!!
    Cool piece of history

    bass plays so so well- low action and a nice straight neck with no issues. I have GHS rounds with nice low tension. Plays fast as hell! I mean fast!!!!
    Frets are in great shape due to this bass having flats on it most of its life. Sounds killer, plays killer, killer looking rosewood neck and OHSC too!
    Neck stamp 5August 68 B
    Again 100% original! No mods- changes- cracks- weird necks- or anything

    I think it’s close to going. People are a little nervous. But the bass is 10000% real and beautiful and plays killer
