Up for is bid is a Fender 1951 Precision Bass reissue.  It is a genuine Fender Made in Japan reissue and all parts are original Fender parts.  It has been expertly refinished in vintage butterscotch nitrocellulose lacquer using an authentic white undercoat to achieve the correct patina of an original.  This bass has been carefully aged to capture the essence of an original early '50s P-bass with accurate wear patterns on the back and front using real photos of early "50s Precision basses. The slab body is ash and the paint has sunken into the grain beautifully. The decal is an Indianapolis Motor Speedway decal that can be removed by the buyer if desired.   All hardware has been aged and the tuners have actual light rusting on them,  but work and function normally.  The neck and headstock have also been carefully aged and shot with vintage tinted amber nitro with the finish removed from the 3rd to 12th fret on the back as if played nightly for 40 years. The neck profile is a modern C P-bass profile.  Frets are in good shape.  The pickup is the original stock Fender Japan single coil and sounds great.  The electronics have been upgraded with a 16 position STELLARTONE Bass Tonestyler control.  This unique control shifts the pickups resonant frequency and adjusts the treble roll-off point in sixteen 0.44 octave steps,  giving you 16 different tones in a traditional one tone bass.  You can easily go from Geezer Butler grind to Paul McCartney smooth with just a few clicks and it's completely passive.  Very useful when playing material that calls for a variety of bass tones.  Go to http://www.stellartone.com to learn more.  Due to the size of the Tonestyler pot,  it has been placed into the bass in a way that does not allow for easy removal.  Please keep this in mind if you intend to modify the electronics in any way.  The only flaw to be found is one pickguard screw with a stripped head.  It should be easily removed with the right tool for removing stripped screw heads. Ships with a Levy's Lakland gig bag.  The gig bag is in road used condition,  but has lots of life left and will serve the purpose of protecting the bass during shipment.  The bass has tons of vibe and has had lots of compliments from vintage guitar players and professional musicians alike.  Get a genuine aged Fender without the custom shop price.  There are lots of builders out there using Warmoth and Allparts components to build similar basses.  This is the real deal with real Fender Japan quality.  Shipping within the continental US will be $40.00.  I ship UPS and have never had an issue with an instrument.  The buyer will be sent tracking numbers immediately upon shipment and bass will be insured.  US buyers only at this time.  Please email me with any questions and check my other auctions other basses I currently have listed.
