I havent played this bass for over a year, and I havent really needed a 5-string for a gig (and I dont foresee needing one), so Im going to let this one go... I am the original owner of this bass. I bought it in January, 2000. The bass has a 1999 serial #, but has the 2000 upgrades Bi-pole noiseless pickups and Deluxe light-weight tuners. And, the bass was drop-shipped to me directly from Fender. It never sat on display in a store. The bass has a Swamp Ash body with Fenders White Blonde finish, and a Maple fretboard with Abalone dot inlays. The electronics feature a 9-volt preamp with Master Volume, Pickup Blend, Stacked Bass/Treble, and Midrange knobs. Unfortunately, this bass has a couple of cosmetic flaws. (One night during a break at a gig, some drunk knocked the bass over, stand and all. The stand is what actually did the damage). On the back bottom edge of the headstock, just about in-line with the 3rd tuner, there is a ding about a half-inch long. Also on the upper bass side of the body, just about in-line with the neck pickup, there is a staggered scuff mark (see pics). The tone and playability of this bass are great. When I was checking over the bass to get ready to sell it, I almost changed my mind. It is currently strung with Elixir Nano-web strings, and the frets are in great shape (although they could probably use some polishing). Also included with the bass is the original Deluxe Tolex case (see pic). The case has some nicks and scuffs, but is in good overall good condition (The interior is excellent). Fender strap locks and T-handle truss rod tool are also included. I'm asking for $850 shipped (in the lower 48). If you're interested, please e-mail, private message, or post a reply. (I'm very busy during the weekends, so if you contact me, please be patient while waiting for a response. Thanks!) Thanks for looking!
