The story behind an old and somewhat worn-out bass guitar.
The story behind an old and somewhat worn-out bass guitar. 5 January 1964 is the date of birth of this instrument, a Fender Precision. It is now possessed by director Leon Giesen, but was previously owned by Barry Baxendale. Giesen also has a booklet of Baxendale, in which the latter collected photographs and signatures of both famous and long-forgotten music heroes. Giesen makes a short, slightly melancholic, but warm portrait of an instrument with a history.
