1974 Fender Telecaster Bass

As if Fender hadn't already perfected the electric bass, out came the revamped Tele bass in the 70's. It is very Fender in construction with the ash body and maple neck. The real secret to this tone powerhouse is the humbucking Wide Range pickup. It is a monster in the neck spot! You really can't do any better than a blonde finish on a Fender. This one is real sweet player and nice and clean too.

Cosmetic Condition:

This piece has been very well cared for and is in very good condition. There are small marks throughout the bass but less than average. The finish has started to wear through on the forearm area a bit. Most remarkable is lack of any color change. Most instruments from this era yellow significantly.

Repairs & Mods:

The bass is from cracks, breaks or repairs. The bridge was swapped out for a Badass, well noted for it's increased sustain. The ferrules on the back are missing. 

Feel & Playability:

This bass has fairly standard medium neck profile that will be familiar to most players. Good action, straight neck, original frets in good condition. They look to have been leveled once in the past.
