    Walter Becker -- Steely Dan Used 1958 Fender Precision Bass. Serial number 30443. This example of a 1958 Fender Precision bass was used in early Steely Dan recordings. Walter Becker purchased this bass in 1973 and used it on the recording of the Pretzel Logic album including the hit song "Rikki, Don't Loose That Number." The bass has been stored in Hawaii for several years and depicts some finish flaking due to the high humidity on the islands. The maple neck is very clean. This bass plays with great ease and provides an incredible opportunity to own a stellar piece of music history. Very Good condition. Accompanied by certificate of authenticity from nationally known expert Vintage Connection, which in part states "no breaks, repairs, or other issues." From the Jimmy Crimmins 'Vintage Connection' Guitar Collection.
