need help: Fender Bass experts

Postby Roy33 on Sun Mar 08, 2009 4:38 pm

can anyone tell me if this body is stock? it's a 1978 Fender body with extra routing as you can see. the seller thinks the extra routes are a modification. I have a 1978 Precision and the body has identical routes to the one in this pic, I thought the same thing as him, but know I'm wondering if this is a factory Fender thing that started in 78. anyone know the deal here. thanks

Not a direct yes or no, but I do believe there were some odd extra routing done during various periods, especially during the 70's. I would agree with your thinking.

I was worried that the body on mine wasn't original, until I saw this auction and now this red one. my guess is they got new routing machines in 78 or so. thanks for the replies guys, I feel much better now. :cheers:
