    Kind of a feeler...I REALLY dig this bass, but I just find myself favoring my Road Worn P all the time.

    This is an absolutely killer Mark Jenny/MJT '55-esque P-Bass!

    AllParts neck, MJT body, finish, & relic job.

    There is currently a Duncan SCPB-3 installed; I also have an Antiquity for it if you're interested (you'll want the SCPB, trust me on this :)).

    It currently has Hipshot Ultralites installed but I'd like to keep them (I can be swayed for $80). As you can see it originally had vintage-style tuners, those will be installed on the bass (they're relic'ed too).

    There's a little bit of natural wear from me gigging with it - note the pick scratches. The rest is MJT's superb relic job.

    The finger rest is a gorgeous handmade wooden example.

    Comes in a new tweed hardshell case.

    Very light - about 8 - 8.5 lbs with the Ultralites.

    Asking $1160 Shipped & PP'd FIRM. Happy to deliver to NYC & parts of Jersey for $1100 cash!

    It actually kind of looks like Sting!

    In the same way that some people look like their dogs.

    Wow! I love it and have been pondering this same build.... But, it won't intonate with the saddle on the plate???????

    To be honest, I haven't messed with it. This is how the previous owner set it up and it seems to work fine. I've gigged with this bass a whole bunch, it's solid!

    Been on the fence about selling this but a MUST HAVE vintage piece has come up. BUMP!

    Just received a $100 setup by the legendary Gil Rosado at Mandolin Bros this week. Price stays the same. :)

    Any interest in an Aguilar 212 cab? I'm in the NYC area.
