    2014 Fender American Special Honeyburst Nitro Precision Bass Limited Run. Clean with no dings, smoke free home studio use only - never gigged. Upgraded with Hipshot USA lollipop tuners (drop-in replacements - no new holes drilled). Also included is an anodized gold aluminum pickguard and the original tuners. Lightweight - under 8 1/2 lbs.

    No bag or case but packed extremely safe for shipping (have done this multiple times including internationally). Buyer pays shipping. PayPal Ok. Price is firm, no rush to sell.

    It’s a great bass (sold 4 other basses during the pandemic and only kept this one) but gigs are starting again and I’m playing 5s again. I just got a new Sire V3 and am impressed so I’d take another Sire 5 in trade (with cash on your end), if you have one on the lighter side - mine is just under 9lbs.

    Sire 5-string (under 9lbs.)
    Hipshot USA HB6 1/2" Ultralite® Bass Tuning Clover Keys, CHROME

    I have one of these. I currently have 3 nice P-Basses and a P/J. I think this American Special is my favorite of the bunch. LOVE the neck on these. IMG_1213.JPG And nice snag on the anodized gold pickguard. That's what I have on mine. Here's how she looks. Heck, I'd be tempted to buy this one even though I have one!! :D

    Where did you get the pickguard for this?

    Mine's fairly old. I got it many years ago from a local Memphis guitar tech friend of mine. He wasn't using it, and swapped it for an extra tort guard I had laying around.

    Sweetwater has them. I'm sure other places have them as well, including eBay.

    I'm hoping to get a matte black one.
