    SOLD!

    From chef's original posting:

    '51 Precision Reissue 5 string
    Very true to 51 form, preamp aside, and about the only way to get an early P headstock and 5 strings...

    Built by Rod at Regenerate Guitar works; and the bass that inspired his Heritage line.
    Warmoth wood parts,
    hipshot ultralight clover leaf tuners and hipshot vintage plate quick-load bridge,
    Dunlop strap locks

    Custom made Nordstrand 51SCPB5 single coil neck pickup wound to SD SCPB3 specs and,
    wound to match Big Single bridge pickup;
    Sadowsky preamp setup vol/passive tone stack, blend, treble/bass stack.

    Vintage tinted neck maple neck and f/b, vintage stainless frets, beautifully grained blonde ash body.
    I have a 'period correct' Precision headstock sticker I've never applied to complete the look...

    Currently strung with fresh DA Chromes, bridge and body support string thru bridge, or, string thru body.
    ~10lbs of crushing single coil P bass tone, plus the baddest bridge bark you can lay hands on!

    I really hate to see this go but I gotta get a Bari sax with a low a for my band

    $1475 shipped

    That bass is awesome. My first bass was a Fender Tele bass...always loved them since, but no 5 strings...I looked at this and it's making me wish I was in a band again and had an excuse to buy it! GLWS!

    I'd actually be willing to entertain close offers but no trades. And of course a discount for a local sale
