Vintage 1975 Fender P-Bass Custom Alembic Bridge With TKL Hard Shell Case

Vintage 1975 Fender Precision Bass . This is from the private collection of a New York luthier. It is basically stock with the exception of a upgraded bridge / tailpiece, two 2 way mini toggles and two pots with push on knobs. His recollection is a little foggy, but he believes the bridge was made and installed by Alembic or Rick Turner. Now we searched high and low, and we found only one similar bridge by Alembic installed on a Jazz Bass, and it was said to be an employee project. It has the identical body curve and string attachment. The construction and the fit of the bridge into the body is flawless, with a solid "thunk" when it is slid into place. It fits the P Bass body contour perfectly... not a simple bolt on mod! If anybody has any info on this type bridge, drop us a line and we will post.

Serial number on the bass dates to 1975, no neck date stamp but stamped name "Torres" is present on the base of neck. The replaced pots are stamped "19-7506"; could not find that code listed and don't know if "7506" relates to the sixth week of 1975 like most pots or is just random. The One mini switch functions as an All Controls Bypass ( the pickup right to amp; Rick Turner did do some mods like this to P Basses and wrote about it in Guitar Player Mag) and the second is a kill / standby switch. Pick up appears to be original. Pick guard has cracks near pot and at lower screw hole. Original Black Poly finish with normal dings, scratches and chips, no big areas of missing finish. Nice Maple neck with almost no fret wear. Original Fender branded bass tuners. Good player, great tone, comes in at about 10.5 lbs. Newer TKL bass case with leather end caps in good condition.
