True story:

Years ago I was watching the Monterey Pop Festival movie and saw Larry "The Mole" Taylor playing a black slab 66 Precision with Canned Heat. If you watch the movie today you'll see what I saw.

My jaw hit the floor. I had always read that of the few of these special slabs made by Fender at that time, only two finishes had been issued, a white (was it see-through?), and a very very few in sunburst.

And yet there it was, a black one.

Soon after, I sent a letter to the editor of Vintage Guitar Magazine commenting on the color of Larry's slab and the mag published it.

I patted myself on the back.

It gets better.

A month went by and one afternoon around four the phone rang. It was Larry.

He wanted to know if I had any idea where he might reconnect with the black slab he had played at the festival. He confirmed he bought it the way it shows in the movie...black with a white pickguard...and that he had let someone borrow it and then it was gone, never to return.

Wish I could have been of some help to him finding that bass.

True story.
