    I just got an Epiphone Classic Pro-IV so this has to go. It was a tough choice...

    Anyway, MIM P in sunburst. In good shape, a few dings on the bout where you would rest your right arm. I tried to take a pic but it's not that obvious. Nice satin neck, comfy.

    MZ9 serial number, 2009 perhaps?

    I bought a Warmoth tort guard, no rout and routed it myself.

    The pickup is Thunderbucker 66S, meant for single pickup applications. Pickup ring is included. You can see that they are made from period correct materials and will "age" well, as this one has. Again, I did the rout. I put it right where Mike Lull puts his, about 1/2 inch closer to the bridge than the Classic Pro-IV I just got.

    Have a look and ask if you want anymore pics.

    No bag, no case, bubble wrapped and suspended in polystyrene, styrofoam, and any other manner of protective stuffing inside of a Uline box.

    I'd like to get $525 shipped in the lower 48.

    I had some PM's asking about trades. I will consider trades so run them by me but cash is king.

    I'm sorry, I don't have a scale. I guess my fat butt broke it.

    It feels pretty average to me. I own a '77 Precision and it's lighter than that.

    I'm going to be out of town from Fri. 21-Wed 26, so I am unable to ship during that time.

    I thought there would be more love for this. Hmm. Is it me? Is my breath funky?

    Maybe people are just scared to try something new? This seems like a killer deal to me; it would cost drastically more to buy a MIM bass, buy a Thunderbucker, route the body, buy a pickguard and route it, especially if you didn't do the routing yourself.

    What's this sound like compared to a standard P?

    Here is the pickup maker. Cataldo uses these and basically he makes reissues of '60's T bird pups.

    http://www.thunderbuckerranch.com

    The sound is basically P, a little crunchier on the top end, great with fuzz, responsive.

    This version is supposed to be like the single pup thunderbirds, the Thunderbird II?

    It's really a single pup TBird with the playability and looks of a P.

    If I wasn't moving to NYC with space being a concern I'd keep it...
