Fender Bullet Bass Deluxe

Fantastic condition very early release of the Made in USA Fender Bullet Bass Deluxe. E0 serial numbers began in the second half of 1979 and this bass is one of the first 200 stamped with that code.bullit1fender @bestinbassguitars.com

 

The bass is in fantastic condition with a really nice setup that is low, in tune, and easy to play. Frets are in good shape and the truss rod has movement left in it and was just recently loosened (yay!). The bass has a few minor dents and dings as pictured and a small spot on the pick guard where the previous owner went for the truss.

I am the second owner and have had the bass for roughly 10 years. The tone pot is wired to be both a high pass and a low pass opening up tonal options for the instrument without cosmetically altering Fenders original intention.fender bullit bass body neck

 

 

Comes with original case. Pricing higher because of rarity of serial number and 70’s date. E0 SN was used between 79-81 and this is one of the first 200 in the run which makes it likely a 79, hard to say for sure.
