Vintage 1977-1978 Left-handed Fender Precision Electric Bass Guitar.  Serial Number S8 45382 printed on peghead face, made at the Fullerton Plant 1977 - 1978, Production number 45382.  This guitar was special ordered for my son which was left-handed.  He was killed in an automobile accident in 1980, at the age of 16.   We packed up his guitar, it has been housed in its original rectangular hard-shell case with black Tolex exterior covering and red plush interior lining in our home until now.  This guitar has been played very little and is cosmetically and structurally in near-mint original condition.   We have been the only owner of this guitar.  It has a double-cutaway ash body with Natural finish, multi-ply beveled-edge black plastic pick guard, two single coil pickups, integral metal bridge/tailpiece assembly with four adjustable string saddles, removable metal bridge and pickup covers, two knurled metal control knobs, maple neck with dark walnut center back strip and adjustable truss rod, 4-bolt metal neck attachment plate with black plastic spacer, black Fender logo peghead decal, individual open-back tuners with "cloverleaf" metal buttons, single round string tree, 20-fret integral maple fingerboard with black dot inlays, chrome plated metal hardware and other typical Precision Bass model appointments.  Only reason this instrument is for sale is my husband passed away March, 2021 and I need the money.
