    I've had this bass a short time, played it a little, but car and motorcycle repairs come first so last bass in, first one out.

    Condition is easily 9.5/10. Only noticeable marks are scratches on the protective plastic on the pickguard from playing with a pick.

    Tone is full and rich. Much more than Fender Standard pickups. Each pickup retains it's classic tone. The J has more life than I expected.

    The details:

    Previously only available in Japan! This is the limited edition for 2013 Fender FSR 1975 P/J bass, which is exactly what it sounds like - a bass loaded with both Precision and Jazz bass pickups for the best of both low-end worlds. Add in the Aged Candy Apple Red finish and oval-shaped maple neck and you've got a bass that both looks and sounds phenomenal.

    • Aged Candy Apple Red
    • Poly Finish
    • Alder Body
    • Oval "C" Shape Maple Neck
    • Bound Rosewood Fretboard
    • 34" Scale Length
    • 20 Frets
    • Pearl Block Inlays
    • Single-Coil P-Bass and J-Bass Pickups
    • Vintage-Style '70s Tuners
    • Chrome Hardware
    • Only 78 Available, according to 8thstreet.com
    • Weights 9.65 lbs
    • Fender standard gig bag
    Asking [DEL]$900 [/DEL] [DEL]$850[/DEL] $750 shipped ConUS. Paypal is fine.

    Sorry, no trades and no International shipping.

    Are the pickups American Vintage series? Is the hardware American or Japanese?

    Nothing wrong with playing with a pick! Just ask Paul, Roger Waters, Chris Squire, Eric Avery, Mike Dirnt, Carol Kaye, Joe Osborn (in no particular order!)

    Additional specs on the bass are hard to find. I was once told Made In Japan basses are purely made in the Japan their work is top notch which is why they have an equal or higher price than some US basses. I feel the pickups have a vintage tone and are close to the sound of current US J and P from what I've played in the store.

    True, true, true, somewhere I picked up playing with a pick was wrong but that's how I started too. It was a challenge learning to play without one. I have a few songs where I need to use a pick and the songs that just sound better with one.

    Willing to help a good friend sell this bass bump.

    I'll throw in a brand new Fender Series 46 P/J gig bag if someone takes this bass at his asking price.
