Early 1965 Fender Precision bass. ( Dec 64 pots / Jan 65 Neck date) Candy Apple Red finish in good condition, white/mint green guard with a maple neck and a rosewood fingerboard. It's an amazing player with an incredible neck. Original black, no logo case included. It's possible the solder on the pots has been disturbed but very difficult to be certain. Otherwise all original and 100% complete. Its nice and light weighing only 8 lbs 6 oz. The pots are stamped 304-6450 ( 50th week of 65) the neck date is Jan 65. The pickups have original winds, only one has any visible pencil marking but is too smudged to fully make out. (the last digit appears to be a 5 which would make sense for 1965)
There is lacquer checking throughout the body finish along with numerous scuffs/scratches and dings. The back of the neck has minor play wear through the finish. The frets had only light wear when this arrived and has since had a fret dress and clean. There's plenty of life left in them. The headstock is mostly free of wear aside from a few small scuffs around the edges. There's a small piece missing from the tip of the pickguard by the lower horn.
It's been fully set up in our workshop with a set of Rotosound flat-wound strings and has a straight neck and a great action. All hardware and electronics are in good working order including the truss rod which works correctly. Serial:L61757 . Nut width: 44.4 mm. Depth at 1st fret: 20.4 mm. 3-month warranty included.
