    Up for grabs is my Fender USA/Warmoth P bass. It has a Fender USA body with a nice Warmoth neck. According to the guy I got it from, it was painted by Warmoth. The fretboard is tinted, finished, and has 22 frets. It has a fairly new set of nickels I put on it as well.

    This bass got me back in to playing 5ers again. The only reason I am selling it is because me and the wife have a deal that when I buy one I sell one.

    The only significant damage I see is around the neck joint. There is some minor paint chipping where the neck has been put on. Also on the bottom of the bass there are a few black marks/specs (shown in pics).

    As far as electronics: It has an Ntune volume knob. When pulled it activates a tuner that lights up around it (shown in pics). Not sure about the blend knob, it has multiple positions, works and sounds great. It also doesn't appear to be the original bridge. Assuming its the original pick up. Weighed in at 9.8 on the bathroom scale.

    Overall he bass is magnificent. Check out all the pics and shoot me any questions. Bass includes a cheap gig bag.

    Priced at [DEL]$500[/DEL] $450 shipped CONUS. Probably won't consider any offers as of yet. Wouldn't mind keeping it. If this doesn't sell I'll get rid of something else. All this to say, Please no low ball offers. NO TRADES

    Considering what this bass is, how great it plays and sounds, this is a steal.

    Nut width - 1.75 in.
    Spacing at bridge - .6875 in., 17.46 mm

    The spacing is going off a rough calculation that I just looked up. By measuring center of the low string to the center of high string and dividing by the spaces. I never knew how to do it.

    Damn. I was hoping it was wider.
    I didn't know that's how spacing was measured either.

    Well I pulled out the ole tape measure, measured from the center of the G string :))) to the center of the B string, then divided by 4.

    That is what I found online to get string spacing.

    That looks nice. Know the weight by chance? I'm in the market for a lightweight 5.

    crap. I'd be all over this if I could. Great deal on a very unique and interesting looking bass. Anyone who buys it will have a stalker and trade offers coming. I.E. a sunburst EBMM stingray 4, or a warmoth walnut/ebony 4 with barts... just sayin.

    Blend knob? Did you mean tone?

    It is a tone knob. I called it a blend knob because that is how the original owner described it. It is aftermarket and has 16 clickable positions.

    I'd pick this up if I hadn't just bought the bass I got from MDbass. Looks like a fantastic and fun player!

    It's a great player. I was against 5ers until I played this one. Now I'm hooked.
