    For sale is a Fender Custom Shop P-Bass in excellent condition (aside from a small clear coat chip near the neck heal) with case and all case candy/certificates. The retail was $6400 and it is very unique in that it is a Custom Shop instrument built to Masterbuilt specs. It has the holy grail of pickups wound by Abigail Ybarra (after she retired), Masterbuilt wood selections used for neck and body, block inlays, a Jazz Bass neck (no typo), triple layer perloid pick guard, and an incredibly gorgeous gold sparkle finish on top of a reliced base coat. These are tremendous instruments and have unmatched tone! It weighs 9.2 lbs on my bathroom scale. Only 60 were made.

    $3100

    PayPal preferred. Price includes shipping to CONUS address.

Fender's Custom Shop built the Adam Clayton bass to exacting specs and tolerances making it a bass you'll cherish and be able to rely on. See what a custom shop instrument is like with the Fender Custom Shop Adam Clayton Limited-edition Signature Precision Bass.

    Fender Custom Shop Adam Clayton Limited-edition Signature Precision Bass at a Glance:

    A P Bass just like Adam Clayton's

    Quartersawn neck for increased stability

    Big bass tone from custom pickups

    A P Bass just like Adam Clayton's

    Holding down the low end in a world-famous band like U2 requires great tone and technique. Adam Clayton has the chops and chooses to play Fender Precision Basses on the gig. Just like Adam's bass, the Fender Custom Shop Adam Clayton Limited-edition Signature Precision Bass features a hand-selected premium alder body, an ultra-rigid quartersawn maple neck with a Jazz Bass "U" shape, and custom pickups that were hand wound by Abigail Ybarra. Vintage hardware, frets, and wiring give this bass the classic P Bass tone you are looking for.

    Quartersawn neck for increased stability

    The neck is one of the most important aspects of any instrument, which is why the Fender Custom Shop Adam Clayton Limited-edition Signature Precision Bass features a quartersawn maple neck. Besides looking good, the straight grain of quartersawn necks is about 50% more stable than plain-sawn necks, and less likely to warp, twist or shrink. You'll also love the playability and feel of the Adam Clayton P Bass's contoured heel when you're playing higher up the fretboard. Down low, your fretting hand will appreciate the 7.25" radius that keeps things nice and comfortable for natural, relaxed arpeggio work.

    Big bass tone from custom pickups

    The Fender Custom Shop Adam Clayton Limited-edition Signature Precision Bass gives you big bass tones thanks to custom pickups. Hand-wound by the famed Abigail Ybarra, these pickups give you all the solid, low-end thump you want and need. This Custom Shop creation also sports vintage wiring to and from the volume and tone control. No preamp magic or wizardry here, just pure vintage P Bass tone.

    Fender Custom Shop Adam Clayton Limited-edition Bass Features:
    A custom bass with killer looks and big sound
    Premium alder body with maple neck and vintage hardware
    Custom hand-wound pickups
    Flashy gold sparkle finish
    Big block inlays
    Hand selected alder body
    Quartersawn maple neck w/ a Jazz bass "U" back shape
    7.25" Radius maple cap fretboard
    Custom pickups handwound by Abigail Ybarra
    Vintage-style bridge and frets

  4. If the bass is included, I'm down. The last two are, as my wife says, "Feral." I'm hoping #5 calms down a bit. Lol.

    This bass is ridiculous. GLWTS

    Adam clayton is NOT one of my favorite bassists (don't get me wrong, he's good at what he does!), but his basses are amazing. I'd like one of each of his signature basses!

    I have one of these and it’s my favourite Fender - ahead of quite a few vintage 60’s originals!
