We've all heard the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Imagine, if you will, they started a band together. Whomever plays bass would most certainly play this 1964/65 Fender P Bass because from the playability to the playwear, everything is just, right.
L series serial number, original finish with beautiful wear patterns imitated and reproduced by all types of Custom Shops and "custom shops". Original case with two working latches out of three(not bad). The handle on the case has gone through some deterioration over the years so a previous owner reinforced it with the only material built for such a job, the universal fix-all.... duct tape.
The original pickgaurd and screws are all still present and in great shape, no real warping or shrinking, no broken corners or edges.
The hardware is all in wonderful condition mainly the pickup and bridge covers. no tarnishing or excessive scuff marks. The foam mute between the cover and the bridge had dried and hardened to something akin to Pompeii ash so that has been removed.
Frets are beautiful and original. The fretboard is gorgeous and in almost perfect condition with no chunks dents or gouges.
Honestly this bass looks and plays better than any Custom Shop recreation you will come across. Totally original, totally perfect, THE P.Bass to have.
