After much gnashing of teeth, I have to decided to let this go.
It's a 2013 AVRI 1963 P Bass in faded sonic blue. WEIGHT - within an ounce of 8.5 pounds. For those that don't know, Fender put 46 special neck plates on the first 46 made. (See below for pic.)
Bass is in excellent condition with the exception of a very tiny indentation smaller than a pencil lead on the back side of the bass. It did not break the finish. Be happy to go over the bass and take additional pics. While I did play this place regularly, I am a freak about guarding basses with my life.
The only change made to the bass was that I added non reverse GB640 tuners. I will return the bass to stock although I will leave them on and include original reverse tuners for a slight upcharge.
Case, all case candy, hang tags, case tag included. I may even have the original serial number box in storage BUT I WILL HAVE TO VERIFY.
It is easily the best P Bass that I have ever heard and I have mowed through a ton of them.
Why am I getting rid of the best P that I have ever heard? Well, I am playing 5 strings full time. In addition I will be ordering my third Dingwall. In order to mitigate potential divorce proceedings (yes, I'm kidding), I have to let this go.
The only thing I would be interesting in trading for is a Dingwall in 37 inch scale in the pricing vicinity of an AB 1. I can potentially add a few hundred for the right bass, Fair value versus fair value. Feel free to run anything by me you want, but I will likely be picky about a trade.
I'll go 1500.00 Shipped CONUS with original tuners, 1575.00 shipped conus with GB 640's and originals. No need for me to fire sale as I will happily tell Mrs Zoomie that I made an honest effort and am going to closet it.
Thanks for looking !
Very difficult color to photograph accurately. It is beautiful and is clearly blue in person.
