    This USA Fender P-bass body is completely stock, and fully loaded ... it has been played, but still looks very good for the thin finish that comes on these, it is not beat ... this body is a very special cut of alder, FULLY LOADED it only weighs 5.37 lbs. on my very accurate butchers type scale. In fact, the neck I have listed elsewhere only weighed 2.46 lbs loaded, so this entire bass was 7.83 lbs before strings ...

    I hope to get a few more pics taken of this in the next day or two, PM an email if you would like to see them or have questions ..

    Stamp in the neck cavity of this American Fender body is Jan 11, 2005 .... I am the second owner, I have had it about a year and a half, and it never left my house, I play Jazz's, but when I saw this one, and how light it was, I had to buy it ... $269 shipped to the lower 48

    Harold, send me your email again ... I have some from a distance that will give you an idea ... I tried to post on here but it says they are too large ... and I am too old, and stubborn to learn what I should about computers to do it a different way :)

    .. or, if you are an old coot computer putz like me, you can simply ask folks politely to supply an email and you can foward them the dozen+ pictures that you just took, along with an explanation of each .. just as if you were showing it to them ... :)

    Thanks for the suggestion though, I actually tried to do Photobucket at one point, and they said I had an acct, but I never got it to work right ...

    Harold ... very nice of you, amazing how simple that looks when you know what you are doing ... thank you ... I just noticed what looks like a scratch in that last pic from the point of the p/g by the jack towards the bridge ... its not a scratch, there is nothing there .. must have been a contribution from my little furry helper that you can see glimpses of next to the body on the table ... also, the tort guard was just set over the white guard for pics, so you can see the white showing through ... thanks again, Harold ... I owe ya one :)

    as to an inquiry ... yes, it does have the vintage bridge with THREADED SADDLES ... and yes, my camera leaves a little to be desired, as does my picture taking skills ...
