For many Fender bassists owning a vintage Fender is the ultimate experience. There's nothing quite like the feel and sound of a well played Fender Bass.
The question is how do you find a good, authentic vintage Fender for the right price...and how do you know it's for real?
One of the most important things to remember when shopping for a vintage Fender is that old does not necessarily mean good. Unfortunately Fender did make some subpar basses, especially in the mid to late 1970's. Of course for some buyers just the fact of owning a vintage Fender is good enough, regardless of it's quality.
