Fender 1965 Precision Bass
This is the best Pre CBS bass we've had our hands on in a very long time. It was brought to The Bass Shop by the original owner, who bought it from Chuck Levin's Washington Music Center on June 3, 1965 along with a Fender Bassman amp. The bass is insanely resonant. It's also been played, a lot. Lots of wear around the edges from being played and carted place to place in the original hardshell case. The pots were swapped out in 1973 because the old ones went bad and couldn't be salvaged. The bass was also refretted some time in the mid 1980's. Included are pictures of all identifying marks, codes, stamps, etc... Also included are pictures of the original bill of sale, Fender manual, and hang tag with the matching serial number. The original paperwork is included with the bass. The original owner was also gracious enough to pose with the bass and the original receipt. Because it is an early '65 bass, it has an "L" serial number and clay dots on the fingerboard. All aspects and parts of this bass work perfectly. The neck is straight and the truss rod has full use. The history, mojo, tone, and all around vibe of this bass are undeniable. We love this bass and so will its new owner.
