Fender / Precision Bass / 1952 / Bass
Year: 1952 (Circa)
Model: Precision Bass OLD REFIN \\\\\\\'09 REDUCED
Condition: Very Good
Description: For the Player who desires a vintage piece to play here\\\\\\\'s one that is the real deal yet can be taken into that night club as well, is very reasonably priced and light as a feather. It\\\\\\\'s a very old refin that is SO old that it blacklights like original with Original big beefy maple neck, Slab Body, correct pots , control plate, knobs, tuners are orig and "reversed direction" .... pick up is heavily potted and as a result ... possibly rewound as well. The bridge has been replaced with what appears to be a 60s Tele Bass bridge, pickguard IS bakelite and though they were hand made back then and varied in actual cut and size.. it\\\\\\\'s a 50/50 on this one. This bass is SO light at 8 LBS 15 OZ\\\\\\\'s (thats the weight of a Telecaster even before breakfast and after it\\\\\\\'s morning constitutional), it sounds HUGE and is mostly all there but since the serialized bridge plate is gone and the neck has the 2nd owner\\\\\\\'s name ("Tex Rabinowitz") on the end where the date and Tadeo\\\\\\\'s initials would be ...The I.D. process as to exact month/year is difficult. The pots are dated from 1950 under the solder (we peeked) . SO .... yes it\\\\\\\'s a 50s P-bass and No it\\\\\\\'s not gonna wind up in a glass case in some foreign land but if you want THE SOUND and one that can travel safely ..... here it is for about 15 grand less than a pristine one. Comes with newer tweed case. IT\\\\\\\'S A GREAT BASS TO PLAY AND CAN BE HEARD UNPLUGGED FROM ABOUT A MILE AWAY!!
