Dating vintage fender bass guitar

Perfect Spaghetti logo, small headstock with a very beautiful figured wood, Kluson Deluxe "double line" tuners, "L" serial number.Neck date is September 1964, pots date is 28th week of '64.Light alder body, three-bolt and 'tilt-neck adjustment' maple neck, large headstock with black logo.Black is one of the most sought-after custom colors, since Jimi Hendrix often used black Strats with large headstocks.Not only it looks great, but it also has easy action and playability and a very comfortable profile.All the pickups work great and the guitar has the sound that gives pre-CBS Strats their legendary status. Neck date October 72, pots date 46th week of '71, grey bottom 'staggered' pickups dated 1972 (2312).This guitar, besides its striking beauty and great sound, has some transitional peculiarities: its three pickups are all dated Oct 15th '64, but one is an old-style black-bottom with yellow stamped date, the middle one is an early grey-bottom with the same yellow stamp (and that's the first time I see a grey-bottom pickup with the yellow stamped date), and the third one is a grey-bottom with the same date, but penciled instead... Another almost-transitional feature is the pickguard, one of the earliest white guards introduced in late '64, instead of the green one more commonly associated with Spaghetti Logo and clay dots.This white plastic guard is surely original and a bit warped but still in good shape, with the usual crack next to the neck pickup screws.

Probably the guitar has been refretted and the nut has been replaced.

I got the Amp back, and the gentleman who replaced the Transformer said it was an awesome amp..dates it between late 60's, early 70's...

it came with the 1971 Fender Telecaster I bought from my brother. It's a silver faced amp, with AA 764 on the tube chart on the inside of the amp.

The body is dated March 1956, has a very deep contour which makes it light and comfortable.

The original finish has lots of checking and wear on both sides, showing the beautiful figure in the wood.

Looking at serial numbers next to the ’60 5G5 brown Pro Amp for example, we see numbers ranging from 00001 to 02000, suggesting that there are 2000 of these amplifiers made in ’60.
