    Sold. Thanks for looking!

    What the hey, I’m open to trades too. Short or medium scales are strongest interest.

    Price reduced to $450 shipped to CONUS. This is a great bass for the price. Typical used models advertise for $599-699. I want this bass to move out to replenish funds. I’m only letting it go to fund a Warmoth build and recent Lakland acquisition (making this bass redundant). I'm looking for what I paid plus the cost of swapping out the original P pickup for a Quarter pounder. Also, I added a tort pickguard but will also include the original, gold guard (see pictures). Comes shipped in OHSC with original case candy .

    $450 shipped to CONUS.

    Great range of tones available from this bass. The preamp is very versatile and the controls are all useful. Runs dead quiet. Controls are pretty detailed for a moderately-priced instrument - not "full on to full off" like others. It can sound like a straight P, a mix or even a pretty convincing J sound. Classic to snappy to modern.

    Condition is very good, but the bass has light play wear. All hardware is great and fretwear is minimal . Not much wear overall. I only had it out to gig a couple of times in the year I've owned it. Always traveled in HSC. Everything works fine. Electronics were recently gone over. No noticeable damage or or anything unsightly. I value my reputation, so I'd give it an 8.5/10 to be safe, but for my own standards I’d rate it better. Case is in nice shape with only a scuff or two (see pix). Please note, marks in the pic of the back of the bass are smudges, not scuffs.

    Strung w new Pyramid flats.

    Here are the details:

    • Alder, P body
    • J width neck w rosewood board
    • Seymour Duncan quarter pounder P pickup
    • Fender Noiseless J pickup
    • Volume, Blend, Treble/Bass (stacked), Midrange
    • Straplocks
    • Original hard shell case

    PM me with any questions or reasonable offer. Thanks for looking.

    Thanks. Out of town till Sunday. I’ll weigh it up and reply then. It’s neither ultra heavy nor featherweight. So I’m guessing it’ll be in the 9 range.
