    Up for grabs is(was) my main recording bass for a while. Sounds really good, a bit warmer than the new American standards I've owned, but this jazz still grunts with the best of them, with a little extra thickness. Nice grain in the rosewood as well! Currently set up with 1 week old Rotosound Swing bass stainless steels.

    I tried to capture the bass as best I could in the pictures, but she's not bad for 17 ;) Swirling in the black finish as to be expected and a few tiny marks on the bottom edge (definitely did not believe in guitar stands!) As you can see, there was a paint chip that was reglued to the bass before I purchased it; this is what I call a true "ding" lol, not visible while playing nor bothered me sitting, standing or twirling around on stage! A couple of niggles in the neck as well as pictured.

    Get this workhorse for $675 shipped CONUS! Includes decent gig bag.

    EDIT: now accepting trades, see post #6

    10 lbs flat. As they say in Russia, weight is sign of rely-bility.

    Is the bridge pickup longer? I have a set of Basslines Quarter Pounder 5's that need a home.

    Ah, sorry it's all boxed up, perhaps a Fender x-pert can chime in as to pickup length on these models. IIRC, they were the same length.

    What is the string spacing on these Vintage 5er's?

    Is this active or Passive?

    Any Fret Wear on the 1st 9?

    Strap Buttons or Locks?

    18mm IIRC
    Passive
    Minimal fretwear. I used it just to record sporadically the last few years
    No strap locks, just the stock pins
