VINTAGE 1965 FENDER PRECISION BASS w/ Original Hardshell Case
Received from seller to Arizona Music of Prescott, AZ.
Shop inspected, set up and tested at ARIZONA MUSIC Guitar Shop by Mario Amodeo, head guitar tech of AZ MUSIC This Bass plays and sounds great !
It's not 100% original. Here are the issues that we found: 1) Repair and fill the bridge area of the body and replace with after market Fender Vintage Style bridge. 2) New Bone Nut 3) Schaller Nickel Plated Machine heads (non original) 4) Restoration of Original 60's Fender Bass Parts: Pots, Pickguard, Bridge & Pickup Covers, and Thumb Rest. 5) The body was stripped of the original Finish and stained with walnut stain. 6) Non-original Pickups The Body, Neck, Hardshell Case, Pots, Wiring & Control Knobs, Neck Plate, Pickguard, Thumb Rest, Chrome Pick up & Bridge Covers are ALL original 1965 Fender Precision Bass parts. The Neck dates to June 5 1965. (see photos) All that stated, here's what we did to restore her back to original
===================================== The Body:
When we first received it, it had a Leo Quan Bad Ass Bass Bridge that was counter sunk into the body in the bridge area. Mario removed it and filled the bridge area with alder wood, and stained it with walnut stain. The replacement wood is solid and the body is back to original, (although filled). We installed a newer Vintage Fender Bass Bridge. (see pictures of the bridge below)
The Body is all original with no other routs or issues other than what was mentioned. The finish of the body was stripped and was stained with what looks like walnut stain. The original body's in good condition, with normal wear. (it has a scratch at the bridge)
It had a Brass Nut installed on the neck. Mario removed it and made a custom Bone Nut for it. The neck is awesome, ORIGINAL FRETS, perfectly straight, with little to NO fret wear. The Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard is in great condition as well. The neck is undoubtedly the best feature of this Bass, along with the bass's play ability and it's great vintage sound and Vibe.
The Machines & Electronics:
The machines are non-original Schaller Nickel Plated Machines. The pickups are non original but sound good. We ordered and installed an original 1965 Vintage set of pots & wiring.
We ordered other parts for it and restored much of it back to original as well. ===================================
The Vintage Fender 1965 Bass parts ordered (from Ebay) to restore this Bass back to original are:
It came in with a non-original Brass Pickguard. We ordered a genuine 1965 White B/ White Pick Guard Along with the pickguard we also ordered and installed a Vintage 60's Bass Thumb Rest The pots were non original. We ordered and installed a Vintage set of 1965 P Bass Pots, w/ original wiring & control knobs. Pot codes date to 42 week of 1965 Along with an Original Vintage Set of 60's Chrome Pickup and Bridge Covers. We also found and added an Original 1965 Fender P-Bass Neck Plate w/ serial number # L 93381 (please see all pictures) (The cost of all these parts was over $600.00)
Inspected, identified, assembled and set up by Mario Amodeo The BEST guitar tech in the Southwest. This bass plays and sounds Great ! Even with the stripped finish, and after market pickups, It looks and IS a vintage Fender relic and it sounds and plays fantastic.
Comes with Original Fender Hardshell P Bass Case.
I guess from what you see here, this bass is an almost completed Vintage project. A true players Vintage Fender 1965 P- Bass for sure. If we do not get serious offers for at least what the parts are worth, I guess we will follow others on Ebay that disassemble it and "Part it out" It's a shame though, we would rather not do that.
