    Fender American Vintage ‘58 Precision limited edition roasted Precision Bass. Yes, you read that right, one perfectly roasted P! Bass is in excellent condition, never gigged and kept in a smoke free home. It does have a lovely, toasty smell emanating from all over the instrument. Mmmm, toasty.

    Installed Lollar Pickup and it really sounds great. OEM pickup included.

    Pickguard has been replaced with a custom matte black version from Pickguardian. There is a small knick in the OEM pickguard that I tried to show in the pics, I’m honestly not sure how it got there as I’ve never tried to adjust the truss rod with the neck on. OEM pickguard included.

    Speaking of, truss rod adjusts smoothly in both directions.

    8 lbs even according to my bathroom scale.

    Includes factory tweed case with what I believe to be a full set of case candy (covers, strap, cord, various papers and whatnot)

    Now open for a partial trade with cash coming my way. Mostly interested in a Fender American Standard/Pro Precision five string with rosewood fingerboard. Please no basses with a gloss maple fretboard. I’m mostly a P guy in general and I’ve been known to be tempted by an interesting Stingray, but otherwise please feel free to throw offers my way via PM.

    Yours for $1850 obo shipped CONUS only.

    Trade value is $1950

    Interesting question. I assumed it was 1.75” but thought I’d do a little digging just to be as accurate as possible. Turns out it’s actually 1.736” (44.1 mm). Who knew?

    Pulling this one down for now.

    I committed the cardinal sin of playing her for a bit tonight, which led to a quick set up and then more playing.

    Never play a bass you’re thinking about selling :help:

    Missed it by "that much". Good choice to hang on to it. But, if the urge to sell comes around again, I'd like to put my name in the hat.

  12. Wow- I want this. My roasted Jazz bass is fantastic so I'm a fan. Price is really decent compared to over $3000 new.

    It’s killer, I’d argue even more so than the roasted Jazzes as the neck is roasted on the P.
  14. Without ever even having touched a Fender AV Roasted '58, I'd have to agree. And a Fralin pickup- the Gold Standard in my opinion.

    Trade list updated and expanded. I’ve gotten a few good offers for great trades but I’m being somewhat picky on this one. Keep them coming ladies and gents!

    If this thread somehow comes back to life, I’ve got a very nice 4004 Ric for trade....

    This one is back up for sale only. I have my eye on another P in the classifieds, so if that gets sold I’ll pull this one back down.
