SOLD 2017 Nash PJ-57 w/ Jazz Neck

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by TheMartianBassist, Aug 30, 2017.

  1. Price:
    Hello friends,

    Mint condition Nash PJ-57, ordered new from Bass San Diego about 5 months ago.
    I am selling because I got my hands on a vintage P bass and this baby won't be getting much use anymore.

    I ordered this bass with a 1 1/2” J neck. That's the standard width for all Nash Jazz bass models. It feels and plays fantastic.
    Additionally I also ordered the bass with VT/VT to maintain the classic P knob layout plus added tone versatility for each pickup.
    And finally I chose to go with a vintage Fender Precision logo instead of the regular "Nash Guitars". The work was professionally done by the one and only Marty Bell. Look him up if you are unfamiliar with his work.
    This bass is super comfortable, sounds great and maintains the classic Fender look.

    Model - PB-57/PJ
    Serial Number - BSD63

    I have this combo but with the 63 body and a rosewood neck; same pickups and I assure you, it kicks total ass. My main workhorse for years. Somebody needs to snatch this up, pronto...

    That is medium aging? Christ, what does the hardcore aging look like, missing hardware?

  10. Yep that's extra heavy aging. I think it's an upcharge for that option. Which is kind of funny when you think about it. (-:

    Someone please buy this bass! I can't take it anymore. If I weren't trying to pay down some debt this would be in the mail straight to Austin, TX!
