    Hi guys, it is with great reluctance that I'm listing my HOLY GRAIL of P Basses for sale. I'm ONLY selling this because I need money for my car payment, otherwise I'd never sell it. This is the best bass I've ever played or seen in person. The neck is worn perfectly and incredibly comfortable! It is 100% original, down to the pick guard/pickup screws. Has an epic patina that shows how much it was played over it's lifetime. As you may know, the best ones are played heavily and this one has obviously been a stand out. The truss rod is completely functional, I moved it 1/4 turn each direction to make sure and it's buttery smooth! The neck is straight and I have the action set super low without any buzzing. I have a couple short sound clips that I recorded with it and will record more when I get some time. That said, I'd consider trades that would have cash coming my way. Please PM me if you have any questions or trade considerations (would love to try out a Ken Smith!). Thank you for looking!

    Looks like Bobby Vega's J's counterpart in a P. So perfect.

    That must be one heck of a car payment.

    I'm tempted to sell my car to buy it! Incredible bass
     
  15. Where can we find the soundclips?
