Fender Precision Bass vintage 1968 with original Fender case


For sale here is a 1968 Fender Precision bass with the original Fender hard-shell case. This bass was once owned by CF Turner (Fred), bassist with the Guess Who and Bachman Turner Overdrive. For a 1972 St. Patrick's Day gig, Randy Bachman & Fred Turner both brought instruments into Attila's Guitar Shop on Granville St. in Vancouver and had them finished in Green, and at the same time Fred had Attila add the Jazz pickup to this bass. This is the bass that Fred owned brought into Attila's, and the Telecaster that Randy Bachman had has disappeared.
This bass has a huge sound, plays like butter and is hard to put down. I've used it on lots of recordings and it's every sound engineer's favourite. The Jazz pickup is accessed by pulling up on the volume knob.
The logo is broken on the case, but there's a Fender logo from the same time-period supplied with it in case you want to put it on.

Interesting colour, and story to go with it. Wonder was it used in any recordings? Can't afford anything like this at the moment, but hopefully this nice piece of history will make someone happy in future.

@fjon: I think it was used on "You ain't seen nothing yet" and a few others from that era. I'll be talking to the shop I got it from shortly (I've had this since the early 90's), the main chap there was Fred Turner's roadie at one point, and I'll get some more info from him.
