    I am selling a Fender 1959 reissue Precision Bass that is a real peach. It is finished in Vintage Blonde nitrocellulose lacquer over an ash body, and it was built by the Fender Custom Shop. It is a Closet Classic, so it has a very light relic treatment. This would be model 015-2100-807, in Fender-speak.

    The quarter-sawn maple neck has a comfortable C profile and a 1 ¾-inch nut width. It has a 7.25-inch radius to the fretboard, and there are 20 vintage-style frets seated into it.

    The hardware is faithful to the original. It has nickel/chrome hardware with vintage-type reverse tuners and the bridge has threaded saddles just like the original.

    The electronics are simple with volume and tone controls wired to a Vintage ’59 split single coil pickup. There is no extra noise and the pickup is punchy with good output.

    As far as the appearance, it has been factory reliced, so there are a few nicks some lacquer checking and wear. But it was tastefully worn and not over the top, as some their later relics are.

    Overall, it is very well made. The frets are well done and the action is very low and playable, which is a great complement to the C neck profile.

    It weighs 9 pounds, 1 ouce without the pickup and bridge covers.

    It comes with its original Fender G&G tweed hard case and the Fender Custom Shop certificate of authenticity, as well as the pickup covers and case candy. I do not have the hang tags. It will be well packed for shipping.


    This bass had a list price of $3696 back in 2008, and new ones seem to have a street price of around $2500. Buy this one and save some cash.

    $1950 shipped in the 48 states, paypal ok. Send me a PM if interested.

    Me too, but I picked up a really nice Antigua P bass, and I cannot really keep both...
