    Continuing my sell-off of 34" basses, I offer this 2002 MIM Fender Deluxe Zone bass in Sage Metallic. The bass is in very good condition for being 20 years old (see pics) and is very light, around 8½ pounds with a slim fast neck, 1½" nut width. There is no fret wear and they have been polished. Neck is clean front and back, Gotoh tuners, hum canceling PJ pickups, active 9 volt 3 band EQ, fretboard treated, truss rod functions as it should, electronics have been Deoxed, she is ready to your next gig right out of the bag. There are a few dings on the body and stress fractures in the neck joint which is usual in these but only in the paint (again, see pics). Schaller StrapLock Buttons are installed but if you want, I will put Fender ones on for you. Comes with a brand new Roadrunner padded gig bag that stands on its own, very durable, and will be packed securely should shipping be needed.
    Asking $499. Local to the Mid-Atlantic area and I am willing to meet halfway within reason. Insured shipping will be $100. I do not make money on the shipping. The last few basses I have shipped recently have been over $100.
    NO INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING so please don't ask. I accept PayPal and Venmo only. Trades considered for Mesa Boogie products or short scale basses (I do love me some G&L's) but please, no Squier Broncos.
    From the web:

    The Mexican made Fender Zone bass is essentially the same design as the Fender Precision Bass Lyte, which was manufactured in Japan, except for the addition of a set of custom-wound hum-cancelling P/J pickups and a three-band active EQ powered by a single 9V battery. The J-style bridge unit is a customized version of a pre-2004 Deluxe Active Jazz Bass pickup. On the five-string Zone, it’s a Vintage Noiseless Jazz Bass pickup with solid covers. The Zone replaced the P-Bass Lyte after its discontinuation in late 2000. A five-string version of the Mexican Zone Bass was launched in 2005. Both the American and Mexican Zone basses were discontinued from the Fender pricelist at the end of 2006.
