Seller: mmguitarbar (2,244) 100%, Location: Seattle, Washington, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 172929764116 Up for sale, a 1978 Fender Precision Bass in excellent condition and in perfect working order. Made in the last few years of the original USA-made model's production run, this late CBS-era Precision Bass has been converted to fretless. The combination of an alder body, maple neck, and rosewood fretboard delivers a round, well balanced sound with even string to string response and plenty of warmth. Weighing in at a substantial 10lbs 12oz, the bass delivers the kind of thick, powerful note attack that only comes with an instrument that has a bit of heft to it, and the tone is particularly smooth and articulate with fresh 45-105 strings.The neck has a medium C shaped profile with ideal roundness and good shoulders, and the profile has been stripped down to the smooth, bare maple. Cleanly de-fretted decades ago, the neck boasts original pearl dot inlays and a lined fretboard for easy visual reference. The bass features a 1 5/8" nut width, the perfect middle ground for players that want a neck that's easy to navigate yet still has a bit of width and substance. The headstock sports original Fender branded tuners that shine with clean chrome plating, and the Precision Bass name sits above the S8 prefix serial number.The simple electronics work as they should, with a new wiring harness featuring full size CTS pots and a premium tone cap. The gray bobbin pickup is stock and one half of the split coil design has just been professionally rewound to ensure ideal response and output. The black pickguard is original, as is the deep burgundy thumb rest and bridge, while the neck plate, knobs, and "ashtray" chrome pickup and bridge covers are modern, vintage-spec replacements. The original gloss Black finish shows horizontal checking and wear down to the bare wood where the forearm crosses the lower bout edge of the top. The bass also has an assortment of small nicks and scuffs from light, honest use, mostly relegated to the back of the instrument. A non-original hardshell case is included (not pictured).
