A 1953 Fender Precision Bass  in Black finish.

Feast your eyes on the ultimate road warrior Fender bass from 1953.  It's been crudely refinished long ago but has a cool factor that's off the charts.  It's a truly historic instrument for anyone who loves the blues, especially Chicago blues from the 50s and 60s.   

This bass was owned and played by the one and only Dave Myers, a Chicago blues bassist who played with Little Walter, Junior Wells, Buddy Guy, Howlin' Wolf, and pretty much everybody on the Chicago Blues scene in the 50s, 60s, and beyond.  The bass comes with a Howlin' Wolf Album with a picture of this actual bass played by Dave Myers on it.
