SOLD A Fender Bender - Must Sell Now!

  1. After my last doctor's visit I have finally accepted the fact that I won't be able to play guitars anymore. Life sucks, but it also moves on, which means GREAT DEALS FOR YOU! Unfortunately, it also means NO TRADES.

    All basses shipped UPS and CONUS ONLY. Only PayPal and USPS Money Orders accepted.

    1. 1997 Fender USA P Bass Deluxe. A little under 9 lbs, in very good condition with only some buckle rash on the back (in pics) Comes with original hard form-fitting case and all clasps work perfectly. Letting it go for $750. ***THIS BASS IS SOLD***


    2. Mexican Fender P Bass Special. Also under 9 lbs., I got this is a trade and it has never been used by me. I rate it 9.5 out of 10. Comes with original roundwounds and Fender gig bag. Asking $400. ***THIS BASS IS SOLD***


    3. 1986-87 Fender Japanese P Bass Lyte. Got this for my birthday (12/31) in 1986 so I'm pretty sure it's 86. Has everything original on it except battery and GHS Brite Flats. Typical dings for a 25 year old bass but in very good shape. Only thing missing is one of the "F" logos off 1 volume button. Just a touch over 8 lbs! Hate giving up my 'baby' but it's yours for $350. ***THIS BASS IS SOLD***


    4. Custom '51 P Bass. I put this one together with the neck from a Japanese '51 P (body will be on sale in parts section), sunburst body from Bass parts Resource. It has a Fralin '51 single coil pup, custom wiring from Butch Ammons at Bayou Cables, tort guard from Jeannie's and since I keep the bridge cover on, I used a 2008 upgraded Fender threaded and string-through bridge. This thing thunders and unfortunately I never got to play it live. The only flaw is a slight crack in the body where the neck meets by the bottom horn. Totally invisible unless you're looking for it from a foot or so. Weights just a touch over 9 lbs. Comes in a Road Runner soft/hard case. Sucks to let it go but it's yours for $650. ***THIS BASS IS SOLD***


    Thanks and Bless You.

    on the 51, when you say crack in the body, what are we talking here??

    And I am sorry to hear about your situation... hope all is well otherwise...
  4. These are all steals-sorry to hear about the injuries
  5. Nitrofix -

    The nut width on the US P bass is the famous 1 5/8". The scratches on the back do NOT go into the wood and are just in the finish - they're not in the paint either as far as I can feel and see. Whoever had it before me used bad belt etiquette :)
  6. Marcray -

    I guess I should call it more of a "chip" - about 1/8" of where the body ended and the neck goes into it was chipped off when the neck was applied. I'll try to get a picture of it but as far as structure and playability it's nothing. I just like to inform everyone on any "flaws."
  7. Thanks AST -

    I thought I'd play until I fell over in some dive bar but bad luck for me. Had a good run of 45 years though :)
  8. Sorry you can't play anymore :( that P bass special is like my dream bass. I fell in love with it playing it at a local music shop

    If your ailment is back / shoulder / neck / hand problems, you should look into getting a U-bass. 21" scale w/ soft rubber strings and weighs 1 lb or so, yet sounds a lot like a p-bass with flats (plugged in). Best of luck with the sell and your health!

    Hope you feel better and could still somehow play. Good luck with the sale though.

    Wow, that blue one is a beauty, I didn't know fender has done trans blue burst. That's awesome, good luck with the sale!
  12. Thanks everyone. Unfortunately my problem is nerve damage and other than basic things my fingers won't do what I want them to do. I'm even going to cancel all my porn site subscriptions :crying:

    I know the prices are already low but if you want to make a decent offer, I'm willing to listen.

    Thanks again and Bless you.

    P.S. I will have three or four more basses up for sale in the next few days or so - keep checking! :hyper:
  13. Ah it's such a low price! I'll never see this opputunity again!

    p special... if the neck is straight, I'll take it.
  15. aaawww man! I wish you could ship to Australia! But then I guess I would be in a heap of trouble. Especially if I was allowed to make an offer for the blue P Special! aaaww...
  16. Would you take 350 for the special? I'm not trying to low ball, it's literally all I can afford :(
  17. P Bass Special is SOLD to adam on bass. Thanks, Adam - you'll love it!
