    My precious vintage 77 Fender Precision is up for grabs.
    This bass is 100% original except for the pick guard.
    Before I bought it I got it authenticated by Jonesified in Florida, it is 100% original.
    After I got it I decided to install a replacement pick guard for convenience.
    The original black Fender pick guard with the matching serial number will be included, the tip by the cable jack broke off, very common on vintage Precisions.
    The pick guard on the bass is a direct fit "white abalone" replacement one, no holes drilled on the bass.

    This bass has the tone that 70's Fenders are known for, plus this one has the original pickup on it and rocking strong.
    Comes in an 80's chain-saw Fender case, it had some stickers on when I got it. Tried removing but there are some left.
    Weight is an average 8.5 to 9lbs, I have no scale.

    I love the bass, it is my Avatar.
    Unfortunately I am facing high expenses and need to let it go.

    Price is $1600 shipped to lower 48 Only.

    It has been played, well cared for but played for sure.
    This one cured my J-Bass binge, I had spent a lot of time trying to make a J sound like a P....
    I still like the Jazz Bass tone but if I need the thump I bring out the P.
    This one has THE tone but I cannot keep all the basses I have at this point, I will be keeping a Fender Select P I got to cover the sound.

    This one has bids on evil-Bay already, I'd much rather sell to a TB member to keep it in the family.

    Trying to undo the SOLD status on the listing, it does not seem to have the option. I guess I will need to relist this one. Thanks to TB moderators the listing is back up and active.

    hi there, the bass sold, I packed it before I remembered to record last night...
    It is a thump machine with Rotosound flats on it.
