So, I love this bass. But I'm just going in a different direction and I want something I can mod. And I really don't want to cut up this bass. (I'm sure you would agree that would be bad.)
OK, here's the promised lunchtime edit:
Bathroom scale puts her right around 10 pounds (It won't weigh stuff lower than 25 so I did the whole stand on the scale with the bass and then without thing).
Lots of pics with descriptions underneath.
Again, I have the mint guard in perfect shape. You can google all kinds of images of the bass with that guard on it. Shoreline Gold.
Best I can find SZ1 serial puts it at 2001.
Right where the contour, the front, and the top of the body meet up you can barely make out a tiny dent in the finish. It doesn't go through and I tried my best to get it in the pic. From 3 feet away you can't find it.
If you look at the bricks in the reflection you will see another dent in the clear finish on the back, but it does not go through. Also, that "thing" on the bottom of the body fits a strap lock. I'm not sure why but a previous owner had it installed. It was done well. You can't see it when playing. I guess it offers some other options for positioning the bass. I have only confirmed that a strap lock fits in the hole but have never used it for anything.
Couple dings on the head.
It has "the crack". The E string tuner crack that a ton of Fender basses get. Either Dr.Cheese or another previous owner had it professionally repaired. It has given me no trouble. It does not go through to the finish on the head.
And speaking of the head.......
I run a fairly high action, so right now that is how it is set up. I can lower it for you or not. Up to you. It plays and sounds great. I have never gotten anything but compliments from sound guys about the bass. I have run it both direct and through tons of rigs. It gets along with all of them.
The pick guard is aftermarket but I have the original in great shape. No OHSC but we can work something out. She is a player and had a couple tiny bumps. Feel free to ask questions. But it is in really good shape. (Weight will be up by lunch today.)
This is about as full disclosure as I know how to be. But please fire away with any question (both in this thread or PM..... I don't mind either).
Here's what I am looking for. I would like Fender American Deluxe Precision V from this era. It's the one with the bucker at the bridge. I'm not really picky on the color. Try me.
I just decided to do this so details are a bit up in the air. If you are interested, run something by me. I can do +/- cash. Will check PM's and post much more detailed pics and weight around lunch time. (Noon Eastern time)
