'Fullerton Era' Vintage Reissue Precision Basses have steadily grown in popularity and demand over the years due to their vintage accuracy and original factory association.
What To Know
Just in - a stunning one-owner 1983 Fender 'Fullerton Era' '62 Reissue Precision Bass in original Candy Apple Red finish!
1983 marks the last official year of production in Fender's original Fullerton plant, which carries with it an increased appreciation for instruments born out of that year following formal introduction of Vintage Reissue series throughout the catalog. This '62 Reissue Precision Bass nails the authenticity of the original early 60s basses with great accuracy and relative consistency some 20 years removed from its introduction.
The slab Rosewood fingerboard and Candy Apple Red finish - both staples of Fender's early 60s specs - contrast beautifully against the lightly aged plastics and hardware. Coming in at just over 8.5lbs, it's very well balanced and comfortable both seated and strapped. With very little to show its age aside from the common buckle rash wear on the back of the body, it remains in wonderful original condition.
As original 60s examples continue to skyrocket in value, these earliest vintage reissues have become fantastic alternatives to those who want the sound, feel, and look of the legendary 4-string without the hefty pricetag.
Priced with original hardshell case.
