    I have a 2001 MIM Fender Zone Bass with Nordstrand electronics for sale. I purchased this bass guitar brand new nearly 13 years ago and it is remarkable shape, with only a couple blemishes. A couple of years ago I had the electronics completely overhauled with Nordstrand pickups and preamp, which were professionally installed by Guru Guitars in Raleigh, NC. I am asking $450 [DEL]$500 [/DEL]shipped for this bass (the upgraded Nordstrand electronics and installation alone cost $339.) I will include the original pickups and preamp, along with a non-matching hard-shell case. Fender only produced these basses for a few years, so they are very rare to find. It is also extremely lightweight. I just don't play enough anymore to justify having 3 basses, so this one has to go. It's been an old friend and I hope it goes to a home where it will get more use. Please contact me if interested or if you have any questions. This is my first time posting anything in the Classifieds, so please ask me anything you'd like through the thread or a PM.

    I was born and raised near OKC, but currently reside in the New Orleans area. Do you live in Oklahoma?

    Tulsa. I thought if you were close I might swing by and give it a look. I'm really looking for a 5er though.

    I'll actually be up that way here in a couple weeks. If it isn't sold by then, I'll let you know and you can take a look at it if you'd like.

    Do you happen to know the pre-amp model number? Or was it just the only three-band they had at the time?

    It is the 3B-5a, which I spec'd from Best Bass Gear. Here's the description from the website:

    "3B-5a ( 2 pickup - 5 Knob)

    - Volume (pull passive)
    - Blend
    - Treble
    - Mid (pull frequency selector)
    - Bass "

    Very versatile.

    And the bass is sold. My old friend is on its way to Norway.
