    I am selling my 1977 Fender Precision Bass. I have played it a lot since I first got it back in 2010 or so, but it is time to move it on and put the money into more responsible things. It is original finish, original neck, frets, etc. The control pots are 1377641/1377702 which dates them to the 41st week of 1976 and 2nd week of 1977, so they are original.

    This is a well used bass. There is checking in the finish around the lower end of it, as well as some around the neck pocket area. Also there is some finish problems with the tip of the headstock and a small dent in the fretboard at one spot. Also, it seems that someone got lazy using the truss rod, and didnt remove the neck to do so, so the pickguard is chewed up at the truss rod end, and the nut is a bit chewed up as well, but it works from what Ive seen (never had to adjust it!)

    I cannot get my scale to weigh this, but I will try again tomorrow. Please excuse the mess in the background, we were rearranging web these pics were taken.

    I am asking 1500 OBO SHIPPED IN CONUSA. Comes with original case, however one of the latches does not work well. Also comes with the original manual, I just have to dig it out of my file cabinet.

    Here are all the pictures I have to show:

    Hey there BA2: what is the nut width on this fine instrument? And how much does the bass weigh?

    Thanks!
     
  4. I've got one exactly like this one, same year, same color and similar condition. This is one hell of an instrument. I would never sell mine.

    bump!

    My scale says it is 8.8 pounds. First time Ive ever weighed a guitar on a digital bathroom scale. A bit tricky, but I got it.
