This is a very rare and obscure model Fender bass of which books have been written about. This is not a book. Fender made scant few of this bass... around 25... which were sent to and sold only in the UK. This one is from the John Entwistle collection and was purchased at the auction of his instruments and other items years ago with full documentation. According to John in his book "Bass Culture" he purchased this one in the 1970s and the body is refinished. This model is often associated with Entwistle and he has been quoted saying that these have a very special unique tone. The neck is a maple cap... maple fingerboard which is rare in 1966 but was the normal feature for this export model. Further reading is available elsewhere, the bass is available here.
