I have always loved the sound and feel of a Fender Precision bass, especially when played fingerstyle, with flatwound strings. In setting out to create an instrument that would do this extremely well, I collected my favorite parts and pieces over the past couple years. I finished constructing/assembling this bass this past spring. My goal was create a bass with both warmth and clarity, for it to be supple in feel, quick to play and have a strong, deep sound. I believe I achieved that. Here are the specs: * The body is one piece of solid alder, finished in gloss natural (4 pounds and 13 ounces) * The neck is Flamed Maple, with an Indian Rosewood fingerboard, 1 1/2" neck width at the nut, Corian nut, smaller vintage-style frets and Mother-of-Pearl dots * Hipshot American Classic tuners with Oval (Lollipop) keys * Lindy Fralin standard P-Bass pickup set (not over-wound or under-wound) * Gotoh 201 bridge * Multi-laminate Tortoiseshell pickguard (Tortoise/White/Black/White) * CTS 250K potentiometers * Switchcraft jack * Vintage Russian military paper in oil capacitor .047 * Cloth-insulated wire * Fully shielded with copper tape * Thomastik JF344 Nickel Flatwound strings * Total weight (with strings): 9 lbs. 8 oz. Here is a link to a large number of pictures (with more available if interested): http://gallery.me.com/marquescooper This bass is in, well, essentially, new condition. It has not been taken out of my home since it was constructed and set-up. The back of the neck has been de-glossed (as seen in the last few pictures) and is very comfortable. I can ship this bass in either a hard shell rectangular case (seen in the pictures) or in a Levy's gig bag (CM8). I was asking $1350.00, now $1000.00. Thanks for taking a look and please let me know if you have any questions.
