Originality: All parts appear to be original except for the the thumb rest, bridge cover, and a few screws on the pickguard. I added new foam underneath the pickups to gain proper height.
Condition: Very good with no breaks or repairs. The original custom color Olympic White finish has yellowed and has some discolored/lighter areas on the back. There are various nicks and scratches throughout.
Playability: Excellent! The frets are in great condition and the neck is straight with a properly working truss rod.
Notes: Neck option ✔! Color option ✔! Light weight ✔! This was the most expensive version of the Precision Bass in 1975 at $370 compared to the standard version at $325. It checks all the cool options that players look for in a vintage guitar. It also plays and sounds like a million bucks. I’m confident you’ll love this killer ’76 Fender Precision Bass in rare Olympic White finish!
