CL Ad 1985 Fender Performer Bass (Bellingham, WA)

Discussion in 'Hot Deals' started by TolerancEJ, Dec 12, 2012.

  1. I have no affiliation with the seller. These don't seem to come up very often and I think $975 might be a little high for an asking price, but I'll let the TB-audience judge. Bellingham is fairly close to me and I basically go shopping there about every 2 weeks... But I've already sort of binged on instrument purchases near the end of November.

    The following text has been copied from the advertisement
    "EXTREMELY RARE, 1985 sunburst finish
    Near new condition; one TINY ding on body, otherwise mint.
    Only made for one year; 600 were produced, only 200 sold due to a copyright dispute with Ibanez concerning the neck.
    Designed by John Page to be an Elite version of the Jazz Bass, with the highest level of quality and detailing. The last real original design from Fender.

    Double cutaway alder solid body
    3-Tone Sunburst poly finish
    34" bolt-on slender maple neck with Micro-Tilt adjustment; 34" scale length
    24-fret rosewood fretboard
    2 single-coil pickups with 3-position pickup selector switch
    Original Fender case"

    A little pricey considering the lack of demand for them.
