About This Listing

1982 Fender PBASS with a 1979 Fretless Neck

I wish I could call this a "war horse", but frankly, it has not seen enough play-time to merit that... perhaps you are the new soldier to take this bass to battle?  OK, so that was lame, but, hey, I've been trapped in my house for over 4 months now. 

This blonde beauty is in EX- condition, a few dings on bass-side ledge bottom from what I call "stand abuse, and one ding on back of an otherwise-gorgeous neck.  Good new:  this is a relatively lightweight bass @ 8.25 lbs.  It has flatwounds on it, but needs a new set.  I simply love the 40-year-aged Olympic White with a great patina ... just gorgeous color!  1982 features: 1982-dated pots, a 1-ply white pickguard; no thumbrest, extra pickguard screws, and a 3-screw bridge.  I believe the prior owner had installed both a bridge and a PU cover on the bass, because there are holes for them (an '82 PBASS had no covers, to my knowledge).   

As for the factory fretless Fender neck:  Immaculate tuners are marked ’Fender’ and 4-hole neck plate has ’F’;  Amazing condition neck, which is a factory one-piece (NOT a skunk-stripe) is actually dated 1979 on neck butt, with a serial number on headstock of S891589.  The neck has a a very thin-slab rosewood board and black dot markers.  I am guessing that the neck was replaced later, but it is possible that it was shipped from factory this way as a special order... you do not see many fretless PBASSES from this era.    The 4-latch case is plastic molded type, no handle and missing half of one latch.

Agin, this is a nicely balanced bass with a great slender neck profile and beautiful neck.  THe finish is nice, although you can see that Fender was doing 3-piece bodies , because you can see the paint lines.  Overall, a great looking and playing bass!!
