    FS: 2012 Fender American Standard Precision 5 with Nordstrand Pickup, near mint, Oly white

    Price drop $1299 shipped in CONUS

    Olympic white w/ tortoise guard
    Alder body, Rosewood board for classic tones.
    Dunlop Dual Design Straplocks installed (aftermarket)
    9.5/10- almost no fret wear, barely a scratch/ding on headstock or neck.
    A little over 9 lbs; these are very reasonable for a P5.

    Inlcludes OHSC- very nice case, unused, though there is a problem with lock I've not tried to fix since I don't use it.

    This bass has had a Nordstrand NP5 pickup (special Fender version) professionally installed. This is arguably one of the best P pickups on the market, (I personally will be getting it on my new PJ5 that is replacing this bass). I will include original Fender P pickup as well.

    I acquired the bass last summer and it has been a second bass on some gigs, so not much wear. It was unplayed before that, AFAIK; I think made late 2012, so only a little over a year old.

    Here's a few live recordings of the actual bass with a little OD:

    Not interested In trades as I am a super picky player and replacing this with a custom instrument that's on order from Callowhill. I bought this as a stepping stone.

    If your dream bass I would snag it quickly! Probably unlikely you'll find one of these used with the nord pickup anytime soon. I also am in love with the finish on this bass and am keeping the same scheme on my custom pj5 from Callowhill.

    Will do if he doesn't want it. He's coming Monday night so I'll update thread then. I'm not looking for any trades besides maybe a 6 string.
