Fender Precision Bass 1978 Vintage Brown Bass Guitar
For sale is one more legendary bass – original vintage p-bass in Mocha Brown color. Considering the age of this guitar, its condition is rather good. There are some marks – rubbed places, scratches on the body, small and very old crack at the edge of the headstock, light lacquer chips – the marks of usage, generally speaking. You can see everything in the photos. The bass in 100% original (except for some screws and pickup cover). Pickups, pots, furniture, paint, pickguard and wood are original. There’s even a user's manual with this serial number. I’ve taken a lot pics of the insides.
Advantages of this bass in regard to other its brothers of the end of 70s:
1. Rosewood neck is a rare thing for the instruments of this period. Sound is more soft and thick and it suits to this color very much.
2. The instrument is more lightweight than the ones of 70s I had (p-bass and j-bass 78). Consequently, it is more comfortable and balanced.
3. The wood is very resonant. The bass gives crazy mids when played live. It also fills in the mix. The sound is very thick, but not humming!
Functionally, the bass works perfectly well. Neck is tuned well for low action. Electronics works amazing. It is a worthy representative of a classical bass-guitar sound. I have many different samples and pics of it.
