    This is a rare prize, one of the cleanest Antigua P basses I've seen. Usually the pickguard starts peeling, this one is darn good. It has an old DiMarzio model P in it, no... I don't have the original pickup, I bought it this way. I did try a more "period correct" pickup in it, but this bass sounds best with the DiM IMO. Currently strung with D'Addario Chromes. It comes with a period correct Fender hardshell, but it's not in great shape, and I do have the bridge cover. The neck has some nice subtle quilting, you can see it in the headstock photo. The neck is one of those BIG 70's necks, like a Steve Harris signature model. Anyway... I have 7 P Basses now, and this one is a little on the heavy side for me (estimate it around 10lbs), so it doesn't leave the house much. Take it way for 2K! Buyer pays shipping. FullSizeRender.

    Thanks Sandy. It is a great sounding P bass, and the coolest color of all!

    Great bass! That sonic blue Lull 5 in the back ground there on your profile pic was mine. What a bass. Still regret letting her go to this day. But I'm glad it's in good hands! Good luck!

    Your loss... my gain! Thanks for your moment of weakness! Now, how about buying the Antigua and we'll call it even? ;)

    Jeepers! It would match my '78 Antigua fretless. I'm only sitting on 5 P-Basses.... Whoever dies with the most basses wins, right?

    I dig this bass, if it's still around when I get back in the states next week it may have a new home.

    I'm a solid P guy, and Antigua is one of my favorite Fender finishes ever.

    Love this a lot, but sadly my GAS for it outstrips my wallet contents by orders of magnitude.

    Best of luck. I'm sure you'll find it a good home.
