    Vintage 1966 (Custom Color) Fender Precision Bass Guitar

    100% Original w/ Bridge Cover, Tugbar & Case!

    Awesome 1966 Fender P Bass in custom color Olympic White finish. Nothing has been changed or modified on this instrument - It's 100% original down to the last screw, and comes complete with the original chrome bridge cover, tugbar and case! The original Olympic White finish has yellowed over the years and looks great with the original tort pickguard! It has finish wear, dings and scratches, and lots of finish checking, but overall really nice shape for being 53 years old! No issues, no cracks, no mods, no repairs.

    This bass is one of the best vintage Fenders I've ever had! It plays super smooth and feels wonderful. The original pickups are strong and loud, and it sounds incredible! The truss rod works good and the action is nice and low across the board - no dead notes anywhere. It’s strung with Thomastik-Infeld flatwounds. The frets are all original and in great shape with lots of life left. The neck was made early enough to still have the smaller vintage-size frets, and the neck has a nice thin profile, so this bass still has all of that wonderful pre-CBS feel to it (Fender went to the larger jumbo frets later in 1966)!
    • Ser #: 121XXX (1966)
    • Neck Stamp: A little smudged, but can still make out FEB 66 (neck is a “C” width - standard 1.75” at the nut)
    • Pot Codes: 137-6607 (7th week of 1966)
    • Pickups: Correct, original green bobbins, original heavy Formvar windings, and lacquer potted. There's handwriting on the pickups, but hard to make out (very typical for this period).
    • All original solder joints.
    • VERY lightweight at only 8 lbs 6 oz.!
    Original case is in good structural condition, but shows wear on the tolex and leather, and the Fender logo is broken off... but it works fine and it's original!

    Great trade in value as she is an amazing cook and has no gag reflex.

    My favorite classic Fender color, PG & neck combo. If I get another Fender, it will have this combo. Best of luck selling it. Seems value priced to me.
