    B]I'm selling my Atkinson Pea Bass
    It's also super light, with a mahogany body and maple neck - Hipshot ultralight tuners - great playing bass and I upgraded the pickup to an amazing D. Allen P-Bass Pickup - INCREDIBLE pickup
    Looking for $SOLD! shipped with gig bag

    Is the finish nitro or poly? Is the bridge standard or vintage? What is the nut width? Any dings, scratches or buckle rash? How low is the action and are there any dead spots? Thanks!

    I am at the family's place out of town for Xmas and will be back home by sunday, so I will answer questions then that require measuring, etc.

    I think it's nitro, but I'm not positive - does not feel like a poly finish at all - feels very natural and minimal, if that makes sense.

    I'll have to take pics of the bridge I guess - embarrassed to say I don't know the difference between a modern and vintage bridge. =)

    It's an awesome bass. This D Allen pickup just kills.

    Thanks, Dan!

    I weighed it at 7.5 pounds.

    I just played it a little acoustically and it seems to resonate a lot and is very very easy to play. Makes me second-guess selling it!
