1957 Fender Precision Bass artist owned by prolific bassist DeLisle McKenzie Harper since he purchased the bass in 1977 from the famous Top Gear Music shop on Denmark Street in London.  This is one of two vintage Fender basses we have from him. The bass is a rare Fender factory natural refinish with matching factory refin stamps of "2063" on the body and neck, which has a date of 1-57. The body cavity still has some of the original Blond paint, which was the only color on Precision basses made during this era. This would be the last of the single pickup, Telecaster headstock Precision basses before Fender changed to the modern style we know today in mid-1957. This bass is in extraordinary condition for its 65 years of age and has had the same artist owner for the past 45 years. It is extremely rare to get an artist owned bass from this era with provenance. 

Harper famously stars in the music video for Stealers Wheel's global mega-hit "Stuck In The Middle With You" which was the song played for the main scene in Quentin Tranatino's debut film "Reservoir Dogs" and is the theme song for the Netflix hit series "Grace & Frankie." Harper performed and recorded with many big artists in the 70's and 80s. He was the bassist and backing vocals for Deep Purple & Whitenake singer David Coverdale on his solo album White Snake, which led to the creation of Whitesnake.  His playing was sampled on the Everlast hit album "White Ford Sings The Blues." Harper was a member of Juicy Lucy alongside Micky Moody - the band had an immediate hit song "Who Do You Love?" He was also a member of Gonzalez and had a chart hit "Haven't Stopped Dancing Yet" where he features in the music video with the other Precision bass of his we have. He was the bass player for American blues guitar legend Freddie King, one of the "three kings" of blues guitar alongside Albert King and B.B. King. Harper was a member of Olympic Runners who had a chart hit "Put The Music Where Your Mouth Is" and did the theme song for the movie "The Bitch" starring Joan Collins.
