    Hi all,

    Back on the market, 99' american precision bass in the rare one year only "plum metallic" or "purple" to the rest of us. Looks sweet with the black pickguard. Nice dark rosewood fingerboard, sounds and plays like a dream. Fresh set of GHS boomers and I'll throw in a set of fender 7250's as well. The only flaw per se is that it has that E string tuner crack in the headstock. It has been expertly repaired and has never been an issue in the 7 years that I have owned it, its not that noticeable unless you look for it.
    Would like to get $700 plus actual shipping, will listen to reasonable offers. This has been a great little bass I giged it a bunch, but I am forced to downsize as I have been laid off for some time and could use the money. Bass and hardshell case are both in excellent condition.

    note: the repaired crack runs from the back of E string post to rear of headstock, follow the direction of the slot on post and maybe you'll spot it.

    price drop...$675 shipped in CONUS w/ paypal, Nice american P in a unique color

    sort of your average P bass weight, 8-9 lbs. range. I dont own a digital scale so just going by experience.

    I've had a few inquiries concerned about the repaired crack in the headstock, I can tell you that its solid as a rock and I'll guarantee it for a full refund if it ever splits on you (within reason). I have had this bass for 7 seven years in a northern climate of very cold dry winters and humid summers and it has never shown any sign of coming apart. I dont know who did the repair, I bought it this way, if I thought there was a chance of it coming apart I wouldnt have bought it in the first place. All that being said, its a very nice bass in a fairly rare color. I'm open to offers but it would have to be a non "fee" payment arrangement. Im not sure if I mentioned this but Im not interested in trades, Im trying to get rid of stuff I no longer need. Thanks

    It's not. It's metallic purple. I have the same bass. Midnight wine has more red in it I believe. Great bass at a really good price BTW.

    its not "midnight wine" it is very purple. I thought I read somewhere that it was called "plum mist" or "plum metallic"
    it was a short run color done around 99'-2000' I think this one and the transparent marykaye white were done around the same time, maybe the two rarest colors for american made basses in recent Fender history.

    a little update here

    put it on bathroom scale - 8 lbs. (believe it or dont)

    and the big suprise is the nut is alot closer to a jazz bass than a precision, just a hair over 1 1/2" , I always felt that mavbe it was but never measured till now.
