Back in 200, Fender decided to make a totally faithful reproduction of their (THE?) original electric bass guitar. I was told that Fender planned to make 100 such basses, 50 for the US and 50 for the world, but that fewer than 100 in total were actually made. There were other stringed electric bass instruments before this, but
this bass is recognized as being the first to really catch on.
This example is in incredibly fine shape, showing no sign of significant use. Complete with the Fender Certificate of Authenticity. This bass is supplied with a modern case and the pictured repro case. Looks kinda like a trombone case or a hitman’s tool box.
