    Selling what for many is the end of the road when it comes to classic precision models. This is a 2016 AVRI '63 P-bass in the sought after Sonic Blue nitro!

    Specs:
    • Color: Faded Sonic Blue
    • Body Material: Alder
    • Body Finish: Fender Flash Coat Lacquer
    • Body Shape: Precision Bass®
    • Neck Material: Maple
    • Neck Finish: Fender Flash Coat Lacquer
    • Neck Shape: "C" Shape
    • Scale Length: 34" (864 mm)
    • Fingerboard: Round-Laminated Rosewood
    • Fingerboard Radius: 7.25" (184.1 mm)
    • Number of Frets: 20
    • Fret Size: Vintage-Style
    • String Nut: Bone
    • Nut Width: 1.74" (44.19 mm)
    • Position Inlays: Dot
    • Pickup Configuration: Pure Vintage '63 Split Single-Coil
    • Bridge: 4-Saddle American Vintage Bass with Threaded Steel "Barrel" Saddles
    • Tuning Machines: New American Vintage Reverse Open-Gear
    • Pickguard: 3-Ply Aged White
    Additionally:
    • The body is blemish free save one small chip near the neck pocket (to be expected)
    • Perfect weight - 8.5 lbs with covers on!
    • Gorgeous straight-lined and dark rosewood board.
    • All hardware is super clean. Looks to have been played minimally.
    • Nice thin nitro on the neck which feels awesome!
    • Will ship in a nice vintage-looking TKL hard case with red plush interior! No additional accessories.
    • The previous owner took some sort of marker to the neck dots at the 3rd, 5th, 7th, and 9th frets, I assume to help with visibility (pictured). There also appears to be some wear at those spots either from the marking process or from a previous owner trying to remove said marks and wearing through the finish a bit. Not noticeable when playing, just fully disclosing.
    • No trades. Buyer will pay shipping.

    I literally just purchased this exact same bass today. This thing is one of the best sounding P’s you will ever hear. Been looking for over a year and two pop up in the same day, crazy! This one looks awesome, bet it won’t last long! GLWTS!

    FWIW, I have this exact bass and the 1.73’ nut plays insanely well. Very fast for the width. Killer bass and I get a lot of comments about the color. Not sure if this is true, but I’ve read many times that these are the closest to a CS a production Fender will get. GLWTS!

    I have one in Olympic White and agree that it plays amazingly well and fast. I'm a bit baffled that this bass is listed at such a great price and is still available!
