    Up for sale is my 74 P bass. Mocha brown color, black PG, and maple neck with the 1.5" Jazz width nut, also known as an A width.
    All original. Shows honest wear. Currently strung with Extra light Chomes Flatwounds. I have the bridge cover, but do not have the pickup cover.

    The D tuner is slightly bent, and is a little tough to turn. But it works properly.
    Bass weighs 8.5 pounds on my bathroom scale.

    $1950 shipped. You can send me trade offers if you'd like, but cash is king. I'm really trying to raise some funds for another purchase.
    Thanks

    Back up for sale.


    Also, the bass will ship in a tweed case. It does have the Fender logo on the outside, but I don't think it's a real Fender case. Never seen a 70's tweed Fender case before. I'll post a pic soon

    Neck is straight. No buzzing or fretting out.

    Have you had heavier strings on that neck? How does the neck adjust/respond to higher tension strings? How much room for adjustment is there with the truss rod?

    There's plenty of room for the truss rod to turn. But I've never had heavy strings on it. The heaviest I've had on there were some medium rounds that were on it when I originally bought it.
