Original Vintage 1958 â€˜58 Fender Precision P Bass No Res!
No Reserve auction.
This is an all original vintage 1958 Fender Precision Bass. This is a rare find. Its not a relic or a re-issue, and it has not been painted over with a spray can. There is no reserve so the highest bidder wins it. These basses are in huge demand and getting harder to find. This one is in great condition. The neck pencil date is 8-58. No warps twists or worn out frets. The neck is straight with low action. The Lacquer is a little worn and pitted in a few places. But that is not unusual for this age of vintage precision. The truss rod works well but has been used very little as these necks tend to be very stable. The body is in good shape with the exception of a few dings, bumps and bruises which I have highlighted in the photos. There is a little ding or cjip in the neck on the bottom side at about the 12th fret. I have posted it in the photos. There is a small screw hole where there was a strap button on the back of the head stock. The electronics are all original and sound fantastic. The pot date codes are 304807. The serial number is 026293. The pickups register at 12.58 Ohms which is typical for this era. (About 2 Ohms hotter than a modern American P Bass.)
The bass has a Tim Bogart meets Chuck Rainey kind of sound. It is very fat, with mid-growl. But the sounds sits in the pocket very well and the notes are well articulated.
The bass has original: neck, tuners, tuner ferrules, frets, pick guard, knobs, bridge, pickup, ground plate, pots%2
