    I am really a 5 stringer these days and just keep seeing this beauty staring at me. It is in, quite literally, in like new condition. Has a new set of flats on it. Truly one of the nicest neck fretboard combinations ever. Very comfy with warm tones, can be really punchy as well. Tones are very dependent on the strings you use.
    Some trades considered: fretted or fretless= semi hollowbody 5 or 4 string: Warwick Pro Star, Reverend, Harmony, Gretsch, Vox, Kay...

    Sales with case candy.

    With very nice heavy duty Body Glove gig bag $1050 shipped cont US
    With brand new tweed case $1100 shipped cont US

    You get one of the other, not both. Just want to be clear.
    This is a great bass. You'll love it.

    Hi, yes, raised pole pieces. Serial number V199826, which I think (according to the Fender site) makes it a 2011. It is like brand new. I was surprised at the weight at under 9 lbs too. Thank you.

    Thank you for some of the great offers. I guess if I were to go for a trade, I would consider a semi hollowbody 5 or maybe 4. Gretsch, Reverend, Harmony, Vox, Kay...something vintage perhaps.

    Beautiful Colorado sunny bump. This is really a very nice bass, sounds great with the flats. I'm surprised there's no interest. Oh well, supply and demand economics at work. If you have a reasonable purchase offer, let me know. I'll close the thread Sunday evening. Thank you.
