SUPER RARE vintage 1962 63 Fender Bass VI 6 No Reserve!

AMAZING Bass and rare to see in UK a superb player NoRs

What was Leo Fender thinking in 1962... a 6 string bass with a whammy bar! However far ahead of his time he has produced quite an amazing instrument. This is an auction for a superb 1962 63 Fender Bass VI 6 string bass guitar  which is not something you see every day here.

It is an item I am selling on consignment and the owner thinks it is original finish but I have my doubts and I think it is an early refinish which is in remarkably good condition. The finish glows when illuminated by a black light just like an original but it looks the wrong colour. Have a look and make your own minds up, I am selling AS-IS and as a refin but it may not be- let me know what you think?

It is really well set up and plays amazingly well with an unreal deep and twangy sound from it's 3 original pickups. So far as I can tell all the parts look original, the pots date to early '63, the neck date is May 1962 and the serial number is 92581. It has a beautiful slab rosewood fingerboard and it feels really nice to play. Included is a non original hard case (see last picture)

Please have a good look at the 28+ high resolution photos I have posted to fully appreciate the cool condition this superb bass is in

This is a rare item and it is not often you see these for sale on ebay. It is a unique instrument and you can get some great results from having one of these in your studio.

This is a no reserve auction and the highest bid takes it. Inspection is welcome before the auction finishes, bass is situated somewhere near Gloucester.

UK list price for these are over £loads each so  therefore at 1p and NO RESERVE it may be a good bargain...

I will post for the rates in the 'P&P and Payments' section, or you are more than welcome to collect. Please note that some areas of Europe are more expensive (e.g. Greece) so treat the rates as a guide. If sold overseas, buyers are responsible for any customs or taxes in their own country.

Cash on collection is welcome and no problem!

Please see my other auctions for loads more interesting stuff (as usual)...

Bass is sold AS-IS with no returns so any questions just ask. 

Thanks and good luck!
