Here we have a rare 1966 Fender Precision Bass in totally excellent, almost near mint condition and all correct..
This rare blonde P bass is real clean and is all correct. It may even have the original strings on it but we cannot verify this, they are flat wounds and very old, they do ideally need replacing.
This is a superb instrument, and the owner cannot find a single thing out of place, no solder disturbed and all looks totally clean and undisturbed inside. Electrics and hardware are what you expect to be there and everything is totally in place. Really nice and rare blonde finish on a very nice ash body. A few minor marks here and there plus some clearcoat buckle worming prevent us from describing this as near MINT but it is very close that category.
Neck date of September 1966, both pots date mid-late ‘66 and really nice sounding and balanced grey bottom pickups also date to late 1966. It even has what remains of the original felt damper in the bridge cover (see pics in gallery page). Included is what looks like it could be an original 1966 export case, maybe one sold to Canada.
We think this is one of the coolest mid 60’s P Basses around. You do not come across blonde Precision Basses from this era that often and this is a prime example of a rare bass begging to be really played for maybe one of the first times in its 52 year history.
