    Last of the models with the bridge humbucker.

    This is a beautiful instrument, very tight and playable. 18V preamp with 3-band EQ. I recently upgraded the P-pickup with a Bill Lawrence P-46. What a boost in tone! See details below.

    Previous owner last year had a series/parallel switch for the humbucker professionally installed and the frets were dressed. I have installed Daddario Chrome flats that are basically new since I have been playing another bass. Neck is super straight and the action is very low. Fast neck!!!
    No issues at all, graphite reinforced neck is solid. The bass is a 9.5 / 10.
    A few very minor bumps on the bass. Nothing that will photograph.
    Fender flight case and original pearloid pickguard included.

    Wilde Pickups by Bill Lawrence - Made in Corona California by master pickup & instrument designer Bill Lawrence and his wife Becky. Wild Bill Lawrence's innovations in passive electric guitar and bass pickup design have revolutionized instruments every few years for most of the history of the electrification. He is probably the only person who has designed pickups for both Fender & Gibson regular production instruments. http://wildepickups.com/Home_Page.php

    $900 shipped. Will do better for a local buyer.
