There is currently a 1956 Fender Precision listed on eBay. In the description the seller states that the bass "Plays surprisingly well for its age." That statement seems to imply that age can have an adverse affect on playability. Is that the case? If so, how does the passing of time affect the playability of a bass? Oh, I should mention that the seller is a TB regular, and if his posts here are any indication he knows a thing or two about bass guitars.
