This Used 2013 Fender American Vintage 1963, Precision Bass, in Olympic White is here on consignment and it is in pristine condition. It is clean, cosmetically, and it is fully functioning. The neck is straight, the frets are still crowned, and the truss rod is functioning properly. Included with the bass is the original blonde hardshell case.
For the bassist who craves pure vintage Fender style, the American Vintage series presents original-era model year basses built with meticulous attention to accurate details, bringing Fender history and heritage to authentic and exciting new life.
The year 1963 marks an important moment in Precision Bass® history because that's when a comfortable new round-laminated rosewood fingerboard first appeared on the bass that started it all. That's here on the new American Vintage '63 Precision Bass, which evokes that year's model with other authentic features including a slightly wider C-shaped maple neck, clay-colored dot fingerboard inlays, three-ply mint green pickguard, new American Vintage '63 split single-coil pickup, lower-mounted finger rest, vintage-style bridge with threaded steel "barrel" saddles, flat-top knurled chrome control knobs, reverse tuners, chrome pickup and bridge covers, auxiliary strap button on the back of the headstock, and more!
The Precision Bass spent 1963 providing the irresistible heartbeat of Motown, the rumble beneath surf music, and the foundation of just about everything else on stage and in studios everywhere. Built using original tooling and based on actual 1963 models we tracked down, the U.S.-made American Vintage '63 Precision Bass returns you to that electrifying year with elegantly simple style, elemental build and feel, and pure vintage-style Precision tone.
This wonderful bass is currently strung with flat wounds and it nails the Motown sound perfectly! We will be happy to swap them for your choice of strings before shipping it out but it sounds and feels so good as is we didn't want to mess with the recipe.
Nobody treats used guitars as we do at The Music Gallery! Every trade-in goes through an inspection, cleaning, restring, and set up before being put out on sale. We even put guitars with bad frets through our Plek machine if need be. If this service piques your interest learn more here or give us a call!
