Fender Precision bass made in 1972 (Serial #348935), now with a Fender Jazz neck. It has a history.
The bass was used for a time through the mid-1970s as the "house bass" at Studio 55, a recording studio in Hollywood, when it was gifted to bass player Peggy Foster (The Runaways, Steve Vai). Tim Bogert (Vanilla Fudge, Beck, Bogert and Appice) liked the neck on the bass, and traded Peggy a new Jazz neck with large pearl rectangles in the fingerboard (separately pictured). The Jazz neck was installed by Rick Oblinger of Travis Bean. Except for the neck, everything else about the bass is original Precision; it has never been repaired or restored in any way.
The Fender tweed case, seen in the featured picture, has been sold.
The bass has the scrapes and scratches one would expect of a working bass played by players of this caliber. There is pronounced scarring at one point (separately pictured). It plays excellently and has a wonderful sound.
