    For sale is a rare non-export, Japanese, 93-94 Squier medium scale P/J bass with multiple upgrades. I'm calling it "non-export" because I personally paid the $140 to have it shipped from Japan. I am very confident you will not see another one of these in your neighborhood. This bass features a rare blue burst color and a 32" medium scale neck. The burst color ranges from subtle to vibrant depending on the amount of direct light. Pics below are on the brighter end of the spectrum.

    This bass weighs 7+ lbs. so it's great for long gigs or for anyone looking for a lighter instrument. The condition of this bass is very good. The front and back face of the bass is nearly flawless while the periphery has some bumps and cracks around the backside edges of the bass. These are pictured below and can not be seen from the playing position. The bass has recently been tuned up (setup, fret leveling) by local luthier Brady Muckelory: http://www.bradybass.com/ Action is 5.5/64th on the 12th fret of the E string with no fret buzz. MULTIPLE upgrades including Dimarzio pups, electronics, high-mass bridge and Hipshot Ultralite Tuners. A list of all upgrades can be found at this link: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f8/nbd-made-japan-853927/

    All features of the bass are in excellent working order. The neck is straight, truss rod moves freely, tuners and electronics are also perfect. I've attached a link for the 93-94 Japan Fender brochure for historical authenticity. Details of the instrument prior to mods can be found on the bottom page (SJP-39).

    The pups are noise canceling but I shielded according to Chunger guidance for the heck of it

    There apparently was a sticker on the bass prior to my owning it which left a price tag stain on the back of the headstock

    The neck is in extremely good shape with only a tiny little indent pictured here

    So, here's the "mojo". The first is a hairline/spiderweb crack on the top rear of the bass (under your picking arm). No chips just a crack a few pennies long due to an apparent drop.

    There's approximately 7 other small blemishes in the finish along the perimeter of the bass
    IMG_3933.jpg
    There is a chip in the paint on the underside of the neck pocket which has been painted in. Possibly chipped when removing the neck.

    Oh man, the scams are rolling in on craigslist. Apparently pretending to be military is the flavor of the month. Hence my offers from "Col James Williams" and Meryl white of the B-18 Bomber Squadron in CO. As if being a scammer wasn't shameful enough, and then to pretend to be military on top of that. Repulsive.

    ewww wow, this CL scammer is "on a geophysical investigations" in the mountains. Very impressive!

    "I have read through the ad and satisfied. I would have loved to give you a call, but I'm out of town on a geophysical investigations in the mountains and won't be back until until 20th of July. So, coming to your residence for inspection won't be possible and will appreciate it much better if you can get back to me with its present condition. Do pull down the ad from the Craigslist so I can be assured that I'm at hand of the item.

    More so, I'll love to make an instant purchase and will be paying by check and it is going to be overnight payment. You can get back to me with the following information to facilitate the mailing of the check.

    1. Your full name

    2. Your mailing address

    3. Your phone number.

    I'll have a shipper come for the pickup as soon as you have the check cashed.

    If you need to reach me, send me an email or text my pinger # (720) 400-7869 (text only) as I drive in range every three-hours to check correspondence and respond at that time. I look forward to reading from you soon. Thanks.

    Looks like a Squier version of the more well known Fender Precision Lyte - it's got the same scallops on the cutaways. Being MIJ and not ever been sold in this market, it would be even more rare than the Lyte, which are already few and far between.

    Bump for a nice, rare bass. GLWTS.

    Yep, shaped just like the Lyte and uses the same hardware. Tuner, jack, cover plate, neck plate, etc.

    All the benefits of the Lyte in a medium scale, in a rare blue burst, and with a killer electronics and passive pup system.

    Too bad I'm overseas, I probably would've taken it ! Gotta love these medium scale beauties.

    Forgive my lack of knowledge but while I may (or may not) have an APO, I do not have a single clue of what it may be.

    (and my friend Google doesn't help much since it's at the same time
    - the African Press Organization
    - a Filipino Mountain
    - a ski brand)

    It's Air/Army Post Office. If you were U.S. military, it would allow European shipping at domestic rates. It was worth a try.

    Oh I see... then I don't have one since I am not U.S. military.

    On a side note, should you consider shipping it all the way to France, I would pay for the shipping, obviously. (though in such a case I'd probably prefer you unscrew the neck and ship body and neck separately to reduce both breakage risks and shipping costs...)
