This 1975 Fender Precision Bass in its original Sunburst finish ticks all the right boxes - tone, weight, feel, condition - it's such a complete instrument in every way.

Early and mid 70s Precision Basses are among some of the very best vintage values on the market, and this particular Fender bass could very well be the reference point for that statement.

While the neck plate dates the instrument to 1975, it's likely that this bass was completed in the early part of the year based on the specs. It features an original and rare photo-tortoise pickguard, used only in 1974 as well as a dated pickup and tone pot from the same year. However, there's not too much to get caught up in when it plays and sounds as good as it does.

Coming in under 9lbs, it's tuning-fork-level resonant.... seriously. It's got this great acoustic snap and response across all four strings, with a tremendous amount of sustain from tip to stern. The original pickup is nice and powerful, and matches well with all of that inherent energy - punchy and round with classic P bass tonality.

Condition: Very Good+/Excellent-. The only thing keeping this P bass from being a true closet classic is wear on the back of the body and a few dings on the back of the neck. Otherwise, it's really as clean as it looks. The Sunburst is gorgeous, the pickguard is clean and crack-free, and all of the original hardware is present. Frets are very clean with plenty of meat left. Setup and playability is great (strung with roundwound strings). The original volume pot was replaced with a modern 250k equivalent, but all other electronics are original.
