    I just saw one of these go recently. If you missed the opportunity to grab what might be one of the best P's around, here's your second chance.

    I'm not sure how much detail I need to go into; I assume there are those of you who know what there is to know about these basses.

    For the rest of you who don't know...this is a Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition 1958 Precision Bass made for NAMM 2005. Only 100 of these were made.

    The relic treatment on this bass is wonderful. In actuality, I'm not a big fan of having to pay extra for someone to ding up my bass and make it look old and used. But the relic thing for me is so much more than just about cosmetics. It's about how they "break in" the bass so that it FEELS old and played and just like home when it's in your hands. I wish there was some way of making it feel that way without having to make it look that way too.

    Please feel free to PM me with any questions you have. This is indeed a wonderful, wonderful bass. Oh yes, comes with vintage tweed OHSC with all case candy, pickup and bridge covers, thumbrest, and COA. Thanks for looking. SOLD

  2. WOW! Nice bass and great price! This is NOT a page 4 bass! BUMP to the top...

    What do they do to the bass, in the process of recling it, makes it 'feel better'?

    Just curious.

    Thanks Tom. :)

    As for the relic feel...I'm not sure exactly how they do it. Maybe others who have experienced this and know more about the process can chime in. The best way to describe it is that it feels broken in. Very different than picking up a new bass fresh from the factory. It just feels like an old bass.

    Well, I own a Custom Shop '55 P Bass Relic and so I feel qualified to have a go at answering that one for you ;) ...

    I'd say; It's like listening to Robert Johnson on CD, as opposed to listening to Eric Clapton on 8 track cassette!

    :p That didn't help one bit, did it!?

    Nice bass. I'm the one that picked up that other 58 LTD relic CS that was just listed. Great bass.

    I'll put it on the FedEx scale when I drop off another bass later today. I'll have the weight posted later tonight. For now, will it suffice if I say "medium"? :smug:

    Too bad I have one already... :)
    Only 100 made. How many are in the hands of TBers? 10%?

    With all the clubs going on these days, I bet they would show up if you started one. :)

    Actually, I've always been curious which TBers owned one of these killer basses.

    So maybe without starting a club, show yourself here?!?

    Why are the poles so much higher under the A string?
