I played Fenders until 2000, and a wonderful 1976 Alembic Series 1. My favourite Fenders were a 1957 Precision and a 1964 Jazz bass. I do not have good photos of these, but some of these basses appear in Photos.
Link to article about my 1957 Fender Precision bass. I owned this bass from 1976 - 2005. It is on many recordings including Elkie Brook's UK hit "Sunshine After The Rain" and Marianne Faithfull's X rated " Why D'ya Do It? " !
