    Here's one you don't see every day... the HIGHLY sought after, and highly acclaimed FCS Sean Hurley! Specs below. All original, HSC, COA, all that goodness. It has a beautiful rosewood fretboard with fairly straight and consistent figuring that runs all the way along the neck...just gorgeous! Strung and set up with D'Addario NYXL rounds. The bass has two small dings - one is a scratch, the other is a small area of chipped paint. Both are pictured. Otherwise, it seems to be in top shape!

    This bass came to me as the 2nd owner. First owner bought it as a collector, and returned it to the same music store he bought it from to fund something else. Then I bought it, basically brand new. It plays and sounds incredibly - and looks out of this world. I'm selling it to fund another purchase - my 3rd FCS '58 :cool::bassist: at this point, I know that the thing I will always reach for is a maple fretboard. And I don't find a lot of use for closet queens like the Hurley...though it is nice to look at! I feel that someone else might bet better enjoyment gigging it out.

    $3800 Shipped! Shipping will be via FedEx Ground and will be in transit by the next day of payment, guaranteed. Depending on when funding arrives, I may be able to get it in transit same day.

    THE ONLY TRADES I will consider are: Cash, or a 2005 NAMM 58' FCS bass +1k cash. Nothing else. Sorry! I know I'll get asked to consider something else but... the answer will be no. The picture of The Rock comes free of charge to all who look, though. Enjoy!

    What a beauty!
    Can you post a photo of the shopfloor traveler? I am looking specifically for the neck specs. The thickness at the 1st and 12th fret. Thank you.

    I have one of these and it's the best P I've ever played, let alone owned. Charcoal frost is an awesome color. They don't come up FS often and this is a good price. Somebody should jump on it.

    I would laugh at the fanny pack but I don't want to smell what the Rock is cooking so I'll keep my mouth shut.

    Sweet bass here people! Someone should snag it soon!
    I have this one in white and I put it as a trade feeler not too long ago before deciding to keep it. Someone offered me a 2005 NAMM FCS p bass you mentioned but I passed on it. So they’re definitely around. GLWTS.

    Wow. Love this signature bass, Sean is a great musician. You can't go wrong with a P. Wish I had the cash.

    Floor traveller for all those who are curious! The bass has sold, and is headed to a good home out east. Admittedly (and unsurprisingly!) was sad playing it one last time before setting in its case (last look pictured below as well)

    Truly an incredible bass.
