    Fender USA Precision Bass body. As-new condition. Quality black finish over lightweight solid alder body. Neck pocket dated March 2001--but could be brand new. Includes original Fender MIA string-thru bridge, knobs, pickguard and guard screws. Professionally shielded with conductive copper foil ($80 job). New CTS brass-shaft pots, Mallory .1uf capacitor, and brand new Seymour Duncan pickup installed. As-new condition with only some hair-fine swirl marks in the finish and on the pickguard.

    There is not an extra inch of wiring in this bass and it is incredibly quiet with the shielding. Just add a neck and go! Questions welcome. Thanks for looking!

    PRICE DROP $410 shipped to lower 48!

    Hey Brian, a TB'er posted in the Gear Wanted forum a day or two ago about wanting a P-Bass body. Take a look in there and see if you think you've got what he wants. Good luck!

    i might be interested in the loaded pickguard alone if someone else wants to buy just the body (and if youd be willing to split them up of course) is that the quarter pound duncan pup?

    That thing is begging for a Moses neck. Stealth P.

    Yep. That would be sweet.

    Not sure were the neck went. I bought this body (for close to what I'm asking) for a project a while back. The shielding is some of my best work and the wiring is dead clean. Light weight, top of the line Fender parts--you can't go wrong!

    Note: The pickup is indeed the Quarter Pounder--the highest scoring pup in Dr. Dimento's ongoing P Pickup thread.
