Here we go again..... my attempt to purge out some basses since GAS struck yet again
Wife wants some out before I even think of acquiring another All prices are firm
HERE ARE THE AVAILABLE BASSES:
Note: Both basses will be off the market at the end of next weekend!!! Alvarez Acoustic Electric Bass
Price is $275 shipped with OSSC$250 shipped
Personally, this is another keeper since every stable needs an AEB to be complete, but just to let it out there. It's an Alvarez RB-30SC NAT. It plays really well and sounds great. The build in tuner is pretty handy and accurate. Overall bass is in excellent condition and i can hardly see any blemishes. I got the bass with a pretty decent setup,
but the E string pin does stick out a tad. It holds in place and stays in tune fine but prob needs a smaller E-string or the pin slot needs to widen for it to be able to fully be in.
E string pin has been corrected and no longer sticks out Price is $50 shipped with OSSC
, which is a deluxe molded polyfoam and has straps to carry it on your back (which is lighter then a standard HSC) and still protects it rather well. Case also has a hygrometer build in it to monitor humidity.
LASTLY 2013 Fender MIA 58' Vintage Reissue Precision in White Blonde
Price is $1550 shipped with HSC $1450 cash or money order
Bought this new last year. Bass has been out of the case LITERALLY less then a handful of times and has hardly any play time on it. Has all unopened case candy and paper included. Bass weighs at 9.6 lbs with covers and about 9.4 without covers. Bass is still in new condition and still has the fresh new bass smell. The only thing negative I can say about the bass is that its one of the poor basses that got afflicted with Fender's QC, so there are little indentation marks where the chrome pickup and bridge covers are. Bass will ship out in original shipping box as well.
**contacted Fender regarding this matter since I discovered this outside the return policy and was told its "typical" so nothing can be done**
I am NOT MOTIVATED to sell this bass so please do not PM with some ridiculous low ball offer. The new price above reflects my rock bottom price. i may be open to trade offers for other NAV series Jazz basses, depending on condition and color, but nothing else.

Here are the same pics I sent to Fender which was later told "it happens".... 2000 Fender MIM Precision Bass in Sunburst SOLD
$340 shipped in a new condition roadrunner polyfoam case
To start, bass is MINT. There are only two minor dings on the bottom of the bass. Other then that front and back looks amazingly mint!! Neck is straight, trussrod is fully functional, frets and fingerboard are in excellent shape.
Pickguard has been shielded. I also added a chrome pickup cover to give it a vintage look. It also sports a vintage threaded bridge. Cavity has been shielded using black shielding paint. Weight is 9.16 lbs. Neck width at the nut is 1.6" and at the 12th fret is 2.25"
***PLEASE NOTE PICS BELOW SHOWS A Bad Ass II Bridge on the BASS.....THIS IS NO LONGER ON IT****
Here's a pic of the bridge on the bass. 1996 Fender MIM Precision bass in CAR (Candy Apple Red) SOLD
$340 shipped in molded Fender (gun style) hard case.
Not 100% sure of the color so if someone would like to correct that, please do
Overall the bass is in excellent condition, except for a small chip near the bottom that actually exposes the wood, but no damage to the wood itself, as pictured.
Body is made of Alder from what I gather. Headstock shows little to no wear and tuners function flawlessly. There is a little ding on the neck near the second fret but nothing major that would make it uncomfortable to play.
Trussrod functions fine and moves in both directions. Neck is setup for low action. There is also a minor ding on the neck behind the second fret, but hardly noticeable. Cavity has been shielded using copper shielding tape. Weight is 9.16 lbs. Neck width at the nut is 1.6" and at the 12th fret is 2.25"
Here is the Fender Hardcase (sunburst bass is no longer available)
