Fenton Weill bass guitar

Posted on: 3rd June 2006

Hi there, I have just been talking with some fellow musos in my local guitar shop, I mentioned that back in the 70’s I owned a 1958 or 59 Fenton Weill bass guitar for which I paid £5 a (3 weeks paper round money back then) , you should have seen their jaws hit the floor. The main question was “do you still have it?” well I am not sure, it could be in my mum’s loft but I would have to go and check that out. Anyway even if it is still there I don’t think it would be worth much, you see I stripped it all down and painted it with white Dulux gloss paint in about 1972, oh the things you get up to when you are young eh? anyway after I put it all back together again it served me well for a few more years afterwards then it kind of faded away once I bought a new Fender Precision. I just thought that I would drop by and tell you the storey and let you know that I think your site is excellent.
