Tony Franklin’s Fender 1962 Reissue Precision Bass

Tony acquired this Fender 1962 Reissue P Bass new in 2006. It’s been a fun bass for him and he has played it a lot, mostly at home. This was Tony’s “go to bass” for writing, for stamina building and warming up, and simply good fun. This was also Tony’s “Motown” bass, and he usually had it set up with a foam mute under the strings near the bridge. This would create an instant Jamerson sound. It is set up Jamerson-style with LaBella Deep Talkin’ Bass Strings 0760 Original Oldies. Bob Babbitt from the Motown Funk Brothers played it at the Fender 60th Anniversary Concert in Anaheim and he also signed it. This comes with a detailed letter from Tony and a photo of Tony with the bass. Please inquire for price.
