About This Listing

 Thanks for checking our listing! Please read the description/our shop terms and message us with any further questions!   

Here is a killer completely original Pre-CBS 1965 Fender P Bass in Custom Candy Apple Red.  We had this looked over by our  local "Fender Doctor" and this is his evaluation on the bass  

Evaluation Date: 3/8/13

Serial #: L79090

Model: Precision Bass

Color: Candy Apple Red

Neck Date: 5 APR 65C

Body Date: n/a

Pot Date Code: 304 6512

Weight: 8 lbs 5 oz

Comments: This custom color ’65 Precision Bass is completely original. It is in great condition with some dings and chips in the usual places. The frets are in good condition showing some wear. The neck has pearl dots, but features a “green” pickguard, typical of the pre-CBS models, confirming that this bass was produced during a transitional period. All of the hallmarks of a great sounding and playing P-Bass are present. The original era hard-shell case is also included.

This will ship FedEx with insurance. Exact cost will be calculated at the time of sale. 

See photos for condition and please contact us for any further details.

This item falls under our vintage/used policy, and is therefore ineligible for return.

USED/VINTAGE GEAR:

Used and Vintage gear is, by definition, old and fragile. This gear is subject to age and handling wear. Scuffs and scrapes, dents and dings, repairs, modifications and replacements all are to be expected. So, while Guitar Showcase strives to accurately document and describe each piece we list, we can only accept responsibility for what we detail in the listing and what is visible in the photos. Guitar Showcase is eager to verify any additional details necessary to address any concerns you may have: just make sure to contact us with any questions you may have before bidding or buying.  Beyond this, Guitar Showcase can offer no guarantee and can accept no returns on Used or Vintage gear. Please be sure you know what you are buying, and please do not think that older, used and Vintage Instruments should be set up in perfect playing condition.

For high priced Vintage instruments, we highly recommend that you either have a local friend try the Instrument or come in and try it in person.

CONSIGNED GEAR:

Some of the gear in the Guitar Showcase eBay store is listed on behalf of a consignor. These pieces are not the property of Guitar Showcase and as such we can accept no returns on any consigned equipment. Consigned gear is also subject to the same stipulations as Used and Vintage gear, as described above. Please make sure to contact us with any questions you may have before bidding on or buying any consignment item.

For eligible sales, Guitar Showcase is happy to offer international shipping through USPS to select countries, with calculated shipping cost based on location.  Please contact us PRIOR to purchase for an exact shipping quote to your country.
