Here's my version of a 59 precision using all American Vintage parts. The vintage 1959 basses had a wide and thin neck, 3 tone sunburst body, flat pole black bobbin pickups and a gold anodized guard. The AV series has come out with a 57, 58, 62, and 63, but never a 59. Each year sort of had their own quirks (63 necks are a little fat front to back, 58's have a thinner nut width and more baseball bat shape etc.) This build puts together the best parts (I think) from all those years and comes really close to a vintage 1959 bass specs. Plays and sounds fantastic with super low action and smooth neck back, truss works great and has never been cranked on. Parts I used: -Mid 2000s AV 57 Maple neck (the date sticker is worn, I think it's a 2005) I've had this neck for a build since about 2007 so it's at least that old. -2015 American Vintage 63 alder body in the stock 3 tone sunburst (flash nitro) with v series neck plate -AV 63 pickups -AV tuners, bridge, knobs, hardware etc. Bridge saddles, screws, and thumbrest are aged. -AV CTS pots with the new Fender wax phone book capacitor and cloth wiring -AV 58 bridge and lacquer coated gold pickguard (light aging) -Thomastik JF344 jazz flats The body is thin nitro so it has a few swirls an scuffs but still in really good shape, the finish is starting to shrink into the wood grain slightly. Small chip of wood missing from under one of the tuner ferrules, maybe 1/8" Very small and hardly noticeable. The neck back finish was stripped years ago and feels amazing, still has a sealer coat over the bare area. 8 lbs 13oz sans covers. No case but will be packed extremely well, $950 shipped! Pics!
