Two nights ago I came across a '63 Fender Precision at my local GC. I don't have the $3,500 to buy it, but I was still intrigued... Anyway, I picked it up and loved how the notes had so much warmth and sweetness...how the notes swelled in such a way that only few can. I asked the clerk if all the parts were original, if they checked serial numbers, disassembled the bass to verify neck and body match, etc. Then I noticed something odd about the bridge: the foam looked almost brand new. Could this be? I was under the impression that the foam on Fender bridges usually disintegrated after a couple of decades (or less). This wouldn't hurt resale, would it?
