The 1963 Fender Precision Bass

I traded in three items for one... but, boy, it was a good 'one.' Sure, it's been refinished... but that doesn't make it bad. It is the best bass that I have ever played. I decided to test it out in the studio he second that I got back from Atlanta Vintage Guitars. It made me play better. I was vibing the hole time. It came with a white case... which itself is a very rare Fender item. I plan to move the bass around in a good gig bag & retire the case to a safer locale. I also plan to refinish the bass in a much sexier color eventually... but that's for another day.
I set up Gareth's album for mix today: i.e., editing, omitting unused tracks, cleaning things up. It should be a breeze (knock on wood - a wood grain '63 P-Bass). Can't wait to actually get started.
