GIBSON EB-2 BASS

SERIAL NUMBER: 67913 DATE: NO FACTORY ORDER NUMBER The serial number relates to 1968/69, but this is a poor era for accurate dating at times – this instrument is probably more likely circa mid 60’s based on the production run. Minimal checking and belt marks, a beautifully aged instrument. The EB-2 was the bass equivalent of the […]

FENDER PRECISION BASS – 1966

SERIAL NUMBER: 171461 DATE: 1966 NECK DATE: 5 OCT 1966 Just like the Venus De Milo, it`s got curves in all the right places!

FENDER PRECISION BASS – 1965…SOLD !!!

SERIAL NUMBER: L45082 NECK DATE: NONE DATE: 1965 Play this bass and understand why the rich and famous play old Precision basses!

FENDER JAZZ BASS – 1978

SERIAL NUMBER: S8 46831 DATE: 1978 The Jazz bass first appeared in 1960, and was a radical upgrade of its predecessor, the Precision, with its new offset waist and custom contouring making it supremely comfortable to play.

FENDER BASS VI – 1961…SOLD !!!

SERIAL NUMBER: 70155 NECK DATE: NONE Plays like a guitar, sounds like a bass. Ridiculously hip! Surfs up! Ok, accolades aside, a lot of ‘surf’ music was instrumental [and we are talking about a time before overdrives, choruses, wah wah’s etc] so instead you had to embellish the tune with reverb a, tremolo and a little finger power to […]
