    2012 Fender American Standard P5
    9.2 pounds on bathroom scale
    John East P-Retro preamp installed, w/ charger.
    Nordstrand NP5 pickup installed.
    Original pickup, electronics and knobs will be included.
    Aftermarket black/white/black pickguard, P-Retro charger light drilled and installed.
    Original plain white pickguard will be included.
    Original case, never left house and is showroom-new.
    Tools and case candy included.
    GHS Precision Flats installed, guage 45-65-85-105-126

    Only issues (see pics) are one small dimple ding near the jack, and one small scratch made when installing the P-Retro. Neck and headstock are flawless. Plays like butter, and the P-Retro and Nordstrand pickup makes it sing. The flats are still not broken in.

    I think as equipped this is the mac-daddy of the new P5's, but try as I did I'm just not a P-bass guy and always grab my Jazz basses when its time for gigs. This bass has never left my house. It is virtually brand new.

    $1150 shipped within Continental U.S., which is lower than the price of one of these new PLUS $450 in upgrades. Accept PayPal. You can check my 100% feedback on Ebay: "EricM22".

    Man... I am NOT a P bass guy either. But if I was, THIS is what I'd want. You've done all of the amazing mods already!

    GLWTS bump for a killer P bass.

    I really can't believe no one has grabbed this yet. I had a fender P5 and they are awesome 5 string p basses. With these upgrades I'm sure this thing sounds awesome!
