    Price Dropped to $1250 Shipped OBO

    Hello All!

    I am beginning to apply to graduate schools for Audiology programs, however due to an outstanding balance with my university they will not let any of my transcripts get sent out until my balance has been paid off. That being said, it is with a very heavy heart that I put up for sale my most prized possession, a 1980 Fender Precision Bass Special.

    Since owning it I have played it an hour or so here or there. It has never left my room, and has always sat in its case when not being used. I never even got to gig with it :bawl:... About 6 months ago I got it set-up and had some Rotosound 66's put on it. They have plenty of life left in them and the bass plays wonderfully.

    All electronics are properly functioning on this bass. The frets are all in good shape with small amounts of wear. Whoever owned this instrument for the majority of its life didn't seem to use it too much. I have attached pictures of every cosmetic defect worth mentioning. There are a few small chips by the neck pocket on the upper-horn side. There is a small crack by the neck pocket on the lower-horn side. There are a couple of small dings on the headstock, and a ding on the bottom. Other than that, this bass is as clean as you could ask a 32 year old Fender to be, rock solid and ready for another 32.

    Everything is all original, down to the gold thumbrest.

    This bass ships in a Fender hard shell case.

    This bass is a piece of Fender history and not only is it the coolest P Bass I have ever seen/owned, the active electronics sound absolutely killer and the quality is top notch. For any questions please send me a PM or e-mail me at j.schultzaudiosales@gmail.com. PayPal is accepted. Thanks for looking!

    Hey thanks for the reply! The nut by my measurement (using a ruler app on a phone) is 1 5/8". I don't have a scale available but I can say this is one of the heavier basses I've owned, certainly heavier than the other two P's I've had. I'd say maybe 10lbs or so? Sorry I can't get more specific than that, but this bass is definitely a beast.

    If I can work out my current bass situation I might be very interested in this. It's beautiful.

    Ha, I completely agree with you. Feel free to keep me in the loop with that, I've had some interest but nothing concrete just yet. Give this beauty a loving new home!

    The bass arrived yesterday a day early from the ups advertised date. It is exactly as pictured and I am very happy to own this bass. I'd like to thank freeslicefattyj for a quick and almost painless transaction. The painful part was the duty paid and had nothing to do with the op. Once again thanks

    Being a fellow Canadian you can get around that(Duty) if you use U.S.P.S. (US Postal Service). It takes longer to arrive but it saves you $$.
