Fender P Bass, made in Japan 1990, natural relic olympic white. P stands for punk right? This bass has the mojo that only comes with history. The finish has faded unevenly under stickers, the chrome has aged to a matte finish, the neck is deep golden-syrup colour... it really has attitude to burn. The single pickup punches out nicely in perfect-P fashion. The neck is superb: round and chunky in the hand with beautiful grain and a worn-in feel. It's definitely a 'relic' look, but it's all real wear from 27 years of belting it out. The Fujigen-made Fenders from this era are famously brilliant, and this is a prime example. It won't last so be quick!
Model: Fender Precision Bass '62 Reissue, PB62-55
Made: 1990 (serial H012183), Fujigen factory, Japan
Finish: heavily aged olympic white, non-original black guard
Neck: maple with rosewood board, dot inlays
Pickup: Fender Japan PB 10.21k ohms
Cosmetic condition notes: Moderately heavy finish wear. There's a bunch of uneven fading where stickers have been removed on the front and back as pictured. The front once had stickers reading "HIART3" which is faintly legible in the fade marks. There's a whole bunch of scratches and dings on the body, but nothing more than skin deep. The guard is non-original. The chrome parts have a perfect aged look, and the neck and headstock have aged to a stunning honey amber and look terrific. It's a bass with history. Overall condition: fair-good but definitely a relic
Playing condition notes: Action is low, neck is straight, intonation is good. All electrics tested and working properly. Set up with fresh 45/105s. The neck is perfect and the bass has a real sense of mojo.
