Just in! Really something you do NOT see every day! Usually reserved for the Jazz variety, this Fretless Precision Bass is super fun to play. This bass has an almost synth-like tone before any manipulation, so if the single-coil articulation ever turned you off or felt too "fusion-y", this may be the fretless of your dreams! Supposedly one David Gilmour used a fretless Precision model on The Wall- notably, in the instrumental section of "Hey You".

Super clean, and mostly all original- the only things to note are the smuggler routes under the pickguard, and the non-original, aged pickup and bridge covers. It plays fabuloso with low low action, very smooth across the whole neck, and with TONS of sustain. The original black finish has a nice checking all over that feels almost frozen in time! This era of Fender had them spraying Nitro over the Poly which got you the checking, but no arm wear where you get big patches of missing finish.

We cannot overemphasize how fun this bass is to play. It would make a remarkable addition to any arsenal!

Very Good condition, includes OHSC!
