Norman Watt-roys  1962  *pre CBS* Fender Jazz Bass in Shoreline Gold with Rosewood fingerboard . Known as The Blockhead, this has been Normans main gigging and recording bass since the mid 80s. This bass has been played on stage with his most  famous band the Blockheads and also with Wilko Johnson amongst other notable gigs and recordings. The bass will come with a signed photograph of Norman with the bass & full provenance from the man himself. 

Original body and neck dated 1962A. Original body finish in shoreline gold with correct bronze base coat and Shoreline Gold colour coat.  The body has been over sprayed with clear nitro cellulose, this clear top over spray is old and show lots of checking. The neck finish is original. The fender decal has been replaced with an original Fender decal from 1964. The pickguard and all hardware .. machine heads, bridge, pots are all 1962 .. the pickups are grey bobbin and date to 1964. The serial number plate rusted so it was taken off the bass many years ago.  Norman believes he has it somewhere, it has yet to be found!! The back pickup has been rewound.  The frets show a little wear but there is plenty of life left in them.  There is a crack & cigarette burn under the E string tuner. ( this does not affect the tuning or playability)   The bass shows heavy checking and wear particularly around the edges of the body.  All this can be seen in the detailed pictures on my website.  Norman is open to offers and cash is king.  *note* *Norman used a Badass bridge on this bass for most of its life, the original bridge is now back on the bass*

This bass is a commission sale.  Sold by Andy Baxter on behalf of  Norman. 
**Norman will personally hand the bass over to the winning bidder ( depending on his touring schedule)**
If you're interested in owning this exciting piece of bass playing history please call Andy Baxter on - 07904 227 517.

Paypal accepted but bank transfer / cash on collection preferred.

This bass can be viewed & collected in Hackney. If you decide to have the bass sent by courier I will ship it in it's hard case and then packed carefully into a cardboard guitar box with lot's of packaging.
