NBD: 1959 Precision!!!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Pentatonic, Dec 31, 2014.

  1. All I can say is wow!!! Bass feels and sounds fantastic, has incredible thump and tone, sounds very much like an upright to my ears.

    Bass is all original in excellent condition with original case and goodies, purchased from awesome Tber D Bopp. (thank you!)

    Below is a shot of me at work today checking it out on arrival. Other picture is courtesy of seller D Bopp.

    Happy New Year to all!

    When I was in HS a bass player friend couldn't afford a new bass and amp so he bought a bass just like that one along with a B15. The pair cost him $150. The last time I saw him was about 1985 and he still had the entire rig. He was planning on keeping it until he retired then selling it.

    The smoothest and fastest playing bass I ever touched was a 1959 Precision. That was around 1991 or 1992. I should have bought it because it was only $1,090.

    Wasn't this about the time Fender introduced the rosewood fretboard?
