1965 Fender Precision Bass Sonic Blue Refinished

Up for sale, here’s an incredible vintage early ’65 Precision Bass. Beautifully (body only) refinished by Fiesta Finishes, a Professional refinish job with era correct Nitro Sonic Blue.

Lightweight at 8,7 lbs. 5 MAY 65 C stamped on the neck, F neck plate Serial # 102XXX, Pots dated 32nd week of ’65, grey bottom pickups dated ’65.

An amazing example of a transition era early 1965 P-Bass. Being one of the early production CBS era, these instruments are known for retaining most of the features and mojo from the pre-CBS years. Besides the re finished body (no mods, no re routings whatsoever), all parts appears to be original and period correct with the exception of the black tolex case which appears to be not original to the bass but still similar era correct (’66 or ’67).

The Sonic Blue nitrocellulose lacquer finish combined with the white nitro (yellowed) pick guards creates a stunning combination.

The neck is something else, it comes still with a Brazilian rosewood fretboard with pearl dots. Its finish is all original and has the typical worn in the back throughout years of playing which makes it very smooth to play. The profile is  slim to medium neck profile (0.810″ Neck thickness at 1st fret and .990″ at 12th fret). Nut width is 1.73″. Frets appears to be original as they show moderate wear, allowing low action and playing throughout the whole fretboard evenly without any dead spots. The Neck is perfectly straight, with truss rod functioning both ways. It’s been professionally set and strung with a round wound set of DR, however it can be strung with a fresh set of D’addario flat wounds at your choice. The bass really plays amazingly well.

The instrument comes with its Original pickup and bridge covers, thumbrest and a mid to late ’60s era correct Fender black tolex hard case (which is in very good condition all latches work and the Fender logo is in great shape).

This is a great opportunity to own a real ’60s Precision Bass at an affordable price tag (same instruments with all original custom color finish go over twice the price, check for yourself).

It’ll be professionally packed and fully insured to Continental US only. Local pickup in LA is also available at no cost.
