    Circa 1962 Fender Precision Bass Candy Apple Red
    Electric Bass Guitar, Serial # 70533. 1961/1962 era neck plate. Correct black bottom pickups and a volume pot with a date code of 3046143. Repro pickguard but the covers may be correct. Neck and body have been refinished. A pencil neck date of 11-55 is present which is obviously incorrect. Neck is slab board and the decal is a repro. Given the anomalies with the neck, it's our opinion that the neck could possibly be a complete replacement. The body appears to be original but no nail holes could be observed with the guard off. Neck pocket has been shaved and there is bare wood on the flat part of the pocket. Still, this is a good looking and playing bass. Close inspection is recommended. Will need a professional setup. Non-original hard case included. Condition: Fair. Price Guide Value $8,000
