Essex SBP-57, P-bass clone, $100

Discussion in '[OLD FORUM] Bass Guitars, Amps, and Accessories: F' started by bassdr, Jul 5, 2003.

  1. I have a mint, brand new Essex P bass I used to record 1 album. It is mint, no imperfections, still has the plastic on the pickguard. The ash body has an amazing looking flame to it which you can brealy see in the pic. My difital camera didn't do the color right, it is sunburst and looks like the one on the website. I put a new set of Thomastik-Infeld jazz flats on it which are great and expensive strings. It sounds and plays great. You will not find a better $100 bass out there. My recording is done and I don't need the P anymore.

    Shipping will be actual cost to your zip via UPS or US Postal priority, your choice.

    I have a Sadowsky preamp for sale which I ran this bass through for recording and it was an amazing combo for just a few hundred bucks.

    I'll consider trades/partial trades for this bass, the preamp and a Bag End S-15D towards a six string bass only. Otherwise I can do paypal, just add 3%. or PM me
