Here is an instrument you won’t see showing up for sale often: A very rare “Custom Color” Fender Bass V in original “Candy Apple Red” Finish! This short-lived Fender model was another huge innovation in instrument design. Unlike later 5 string basses which include a low B string, the bass V utilizes a high C note, giving these a truly unique sound and character unlike any other bass available. With only a few hundred made between 1965-1971, these are becoming very hard to find, especially in a Custom Color finish. Famously used by John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin, the bass V is perfect for a bassist or studio owner looking for a unique low end sound, as well as for collectors looking for unusual Fender instruments. This guitar also includes the original hardshell Fender case! EXC w/OHSC $7,500.
