    1993 USA Fender PBass Plus ... NOT 1983

    This bass has great tone ... P-bomb and, when you like, blend in some J pup when you need to growl and clarity.

    Black body, black pickguard,

    Nice flamed maple neck with rosewood board.

    The bass is in very good condition, but lightly relic'd. The bass is black on black so it is hard to photograph. Besides the cool chips and few dings, the paint is not checked at all and not really swirled.

    I did paint the pick guard black, but replacements are still available if you wouldn't want this one.

    If you're not familiar with the PBass plus, here is the wiki:
    The Precision Bass Plus is an electric bass made by Fender Musical Instruments Corporation and designed by George Blanda in 1989. Usually known as the "Boner P-Bass"[citation needed], it was one of the first American-made Fender basses to feature a 22-fret neck, requiring the company to slightly oversize the body shape and lengthen the cutaways, which distinctly changed the overall look of the instrument. Other features included a solid alder or ash body, a 1-piece maple neck with rosewood or maple fingerboard, adjustable Lace Sensor Precision and Jazz pickups, Schaller deluxe die-cast tuning machines, 3-ply black, parchment or 4-ply brown tortoise shell pickguard, Schaller Elite fine-tuning bridge, 3-way toggle pickup switch, master volume, series/parallel push-push button for the neck pickup and master TBX tone. It was discontinued in 1993.

    Ships securely in gig bag ...

    I'm having a hard time uploading pics ... serious inquiries, please PM me and I'll mail you pics asap.

    I'm asking $800 plus shipping. Great deal for an old Fender!

    Title says this is an 83 bass and the wiki you refer to says it was available from 89-93. Can you give some more info on that?
  3. Probably a typo and meant 93
