1978 Fender Precision Bass

What a fantastic example of a late 70’s Fender Precision bass, currently strung with round wound strings, gives that classic 70’s punchy Precision tone! However, we can string with flats if thats more your vibe on a P bass.

The condition of this instrument is very good, there are a few areas of chips and dings on the body as expected on a bass of this age that’s been used, as can be seen in the photos. The frets have quite a lot of wear although completely playable. The finish has also gone slightly matt, which is fairly common of the finishes of this period. We have checked the trussrod and electronics and everything functions perfectly as it should. Included is a hardcase.
