Up for sale is an absolutely stunning collector’s grade 1965 Fender Precision Bass in its original and nicely aged custom color Lake Placid Blue finish. This bass came out of a large collection up here in the Pacific Northwest of some of the finest vintage Fender basses we’ve seen. This transitional era instrument features a Brazilian rosewood fingerboard with pearl dots, L serial plate and a mint pickguard. The neck is stamped 5SEP65C, pots are coded 1376542 dating to the 42nd week of 1965. The neck pocket is correct showing “paint stick” mark and an original shim. Under UV light the entire instrument glows just as it should showing the finish to be correct. This instrument is entirely original with the exception of a professional refret and plek with stainless steel frets by Mike Lull in Bellevue, WA. Pro setup in house and plays beautifully. Included is the original bridge and guard covers and an early 1963 blond hardshell case.
