    1978 Fender P-Bass. Trans Walnut color with ash body, maple neck/fingerboard, and 1.5" nut. Bass was routed for the extra pickup and it has newer Dimarzio model P+J pickups. Finish has a few chips and a bit of arm wear but is in overall good condition. The neck does have one chip between the nut and the first fret. It could easily be filed but being located where it is it never bothered me so I didn't get around to it. Frets are in great shape, truss rod works as it should, and the bass plays great. Comes in a hard case (not original). Please let me know if you have any questions. $950 SOLD

    A touch of extra routing in the control cavity. It had a Alembic active system in it at one time so they had needed to shave a bit to fit it in. It's pretty minor though. Clean job on the Jazz pickup.

    Yes, Schaller roller bridge. Thanks!

    No really. May consider a Jazzmaster or Jaguar guitar.

    That is one of my all time favorite color schemes and pickup settings (70s position J with a P!!!)

    I'm sure everyone wants a weight, but I really do, too!

    Approx 10.5 lbs using the bathroom scale. You could definitely drop some weight if you changed it back to a vintage style bridge.

    I've seen these go for 13 lbs stock, so 10.5 is pretty reasonable.

    Too heavy and too neck-narrow for me BUT super cool looking and probably incredible-sounding. Bump!
