    Get this out of the way...
    10.5 pounds

    It’s a bit of a heavy weight, but has the stones to back it up.

    In great condition for a 38 year old bass.

    Controls are vol/treb/bass active/passive switch.

    Punches holes in any mix. One of the best sounding and playing P-Basses I’ve owned. Serious grind and growl.

    Ash body/rosewood fingerboard.
    HipShot DTuner included (original tuner as well).

    Generic hardshell case.
    I also have a real flight case that is form fitted for the bass- but it crazy heavy. I’ll include it for an extra $200- but shipping is completely on the buyer.

    I’d keep it but I just had major spinal surgery and it’s not gonna get played due to its weight, and I have other P-Basses.

    $1650 Plus shipping.

    Trades considered.
    Here’s some preferred:
    Warwick Thumb b/o 5 (older Wenge neck), Thumb neck thru 4.
    Dingwall Combustion or NG 4 or 5 string

    Wow, that’s super clean! Under-rated and overlooked Fullerton era, very versatile preamp too. And weighs the same as a SR5... GLWTS!

    But it’s identical to mine in every way. And it’s a very good representation of how it sounds.
    I could do iPhone video of mine, but honestly, that’s dead nuts on how it sounds.

    Oh man... I had this EXACT same bass. I parted out the electronics and pick guard and put in Fender Original ‘62s and then I sold it stupidly for like, $600. I still think about it all the time.

    What a special instrument. I really wish I needed it.
