1978 Orig Fender Precision Bass - Black, Rosewood Board
Extremely nice P-Bass in one of the coolest looks - all black, including the more rare rosewood fretboard. Stunning cosmetic condition but unlike some very clean examples which simply weren't good players, this baby plays fantastic. Frets are near perfect, action is low with no dead spots, and it's not at all heavy. Other than the pickup, which was changed to a Duncan SPB-1 Vintage P-Bass pickup

This bass is 100% original down to the pickguard screws.
Cosmetically, this bass looks like an '08, not a '78. Finish shines like glass with no touch-ups, overspray and little to no check lines.
Pots are 10th week '78, as well as original cap, jack, and wiring; original pickguard is in beautiful shape with no cracks or gouges and only light scratches; tuners are clean and work smoothly; bridge isn't corroded and saddle screws all turn easily. Even the case, which is the proper black Tolex with maroon lining, is in very tidy shape. I don't know what else to say...this P-Bass is a total winner. For condition, playability, and tone, you won't find a better 70's Precision *****
