It was a custom-ordered VI from a customer in South Africa in 1962 and it spent it’s whole life there until now :)

Still has the original strings on...

Have you won the lottery or something ?

:w00t:

That is amazing.


What was the first tune you played on it when you pulled it out of the case ?

It is ridiculous - no color fade (!!!) and super clean. It was played lightly but it’s one of those that didn’t see much action at all and then retired.

It’s definitely the cleanest, mintiest BMM I’ve ever seen on any vintage Fender, in person or in pics. Even the clean examples I’ve seen have faded or darkened somewhat...

Stunning!! You're on a bit of a roll with these Bass VIs.
