For reference, I received approximately $350 in trade value, even trade for a used 2011 Fender MIM P Bass, 3 Tone Sunburst, Vintage Tint Gloss Neck, Maple Fingerboard, 60th Anniversary Neck Plate. Only the second time in my 25 years of playing that I've been offered an even clean trade with no cash involved in a store I've never been in.
Awesome modern Schecter P/J bass that turns heads and is versatile enough to go from mellow classic tones to more modern punch and sizzle. The humbucker in the bridge position is two single jazz pickups wired in series under one cover. Pull up on the tone knob and it splits to one coil. Solo the neck pickup for classic P tones, the single coil jazz pickup for more midrangey J tones, the humbucker for beefy aggressive Stingray type tones, or blend any combination for something unique. One of my favorite tones is full on neck, full on bridge (both coils), and back off the tone 25% for a beefy, meaty, growly tone! bone stock and easily a 9.5 out of 10. There's a couple of minor indentations on the back of the body, an inch long and 1/4 inch apart. These are indentations that don't go through the paint and I couldn't get to show in photos. Very minor and the only thing knocking this bass down from a 10. I think a fork lift barely pierced the shipping box when I received this, but tons of bubble wrap saved it from anything worse. I have Fender 9050CL custom light flatwounds on it right now...I can ship with those or with a set of D'Addario roundwounds that it originally shipped with, your choice. Comes with a standard Fender nylon gig bag.
I want to get into a more basic P bass. I don't need any more tonal variety than the volume and tone knobs on a single pickup P bass. I like to plug in and go. Plus, I prefer a maple board.
I'm looking to sell for $350 shipped CONUS, PayPal or USPS MO or looking at possible trades.
I'm looking to trade this for a Fender MIM P bass with a maple fingerboard, I could possibly go for a Squier Matt Freeman (but that's the only Squier) or MIA Highway One or American Special with a bit of cash on top, but not looking to get expensive. Might also be interested in a Schecter Model T (Black/Maple, maybe Sunburst), although the goal is more towards a more standard P. Really looking for a maple board, but might consider a rosewood board under very limited circumstances and for the right bass.
