This highly collectable Fender American Vintage ’58 Precision Bass was originally supplied by us in late 2013. It is a pleasure to have it back in stock, and it shows only a few signs that it ever left. It comes supplied with all original documentation and accessories, including a beautiful leather strap and certificate of authenticity. This instrument really is a time-capsule, taking its player right back to the earliest days of the seminal P-Bass. It’s not hard to see why it left such an indelible mark on the world of music; it plays beautifully, and one is always aware that, without this instrument, the trajectory of music over the past sixty years would have been very different.

We have treated it to our usual rigorous check-over and professional set-up, revealing only a few marks to show it has ever been played. These have been detailed in the pictures. It even has its protective plastic covers intact on three of its tuning pegs. We ship fast and secure worldwide, so buy with complete confidence.
