    $950.00, $25.00 shipping: Back on the block again is my Sunburst 2012 Fender 5-string Precision bass with light Flame maple neck. The bass is in perfect condition, not a single scratch. I just checked AMS and Sweetwater and this bass is selling for $1349.00. The bass weighs in at a svelte 8.14 pounds (on digital bathroom scale). If I were to give this bass a rating it would be 9.9 out of 10. It will ship in its factory Fender SKB case and comes with all the case candy (which is still mostly unopened, for example the Fender truss rod adjuster is still shrink wrapped and all hang tags are included). It had flats on it so I took it to my local set-up guy and he put the Fender strings back on it and tweaked it out. The bass was very smooth and even sounding (it reminds me of my 1993 Modulus Q5). $950.00, $25.00 shipping. Please PM me with inquiries. Finally, I just have to say I love this bass, it is a great player; fast tight and versatile and I think in the right hands it could be a true creative companion. I guarantee anyone who buys it will be happy with their purchase. PayPal is the way to go and I will ship as soon as it is sold.

    This is a great bass at a great price, over $350.00 cheaper then new. This bass is in perfect condition and has acclimated in Indiana, which means if there was a problem then it would have presented itself by now. My set up guy said this is the best Fender neck he had ever adjusted; he was amazed at the preciseness and precision of the truss rod and compared it to what he would expect in a boutique bass. And I quote, “when I adjust a truss rod on a Fender I usually turn it more then I think I need too, to get the desired adjustment, but with this truss rod I turn it and it reacts immediately”. Let’s move this bass.

    I have the same bass. It's a very well done P bass that just happens to have five strings.

    Super light bass, great tone and wonderful feel. Its B string can easily compete with any of top tier bass!
