    Up for sale is this beefy number. You may be able to justify it as personal protection, as I'm pretty sure you could swing it by the neck and take out any home intruder at the kneecaps, then continue to finish (in tune, no less) the song you are practicing.

    I purchased this from the original owner, who stated that he purchased the bass new in 1978 -- I know there is sometimes a question on the age of these late 70's/early 80's serialized Fenders. Here are some other details:
    -B neck, 1 5/8"
    -white Dimarzio pickup, which has aged to crème; while not original, it was swapped in '79, so at least period correct
    -11.6 lbs.

    The pickguard is not original, although it was replaced long ago. I have the original, which is broken down by the tone knob. The case is not original; rather, it's an early 80's (?) plastic molded Fender USA case. No cracks, latches are functional. The bass itself has been well-loved and played often -- no faux relic job here. If you are looking for a closet queen, this ain't it. With that said, it functions perfectly, and sounds like P bass should. I recently had a luthier do a complete check -- new strings, setup, etc. The neck is straight, the truss rod works, and electronics are not scratchy. There are Schaller buttons installed in the pics, but I will install the originals prior to shipping.

    Asking $1300 PayPal shipped CONUS...thanks for checking it out.

    I'm gravitating more towards J basses lately, and have the P thing covered with other basses. No trades please...I have my eye on a specific bass in the Classifieds.
