    Selling a lightly used 2017 Fender Japan Hybrid 50's Precision Bass in natural alder body and maple neck. All stock Precision bass, no issues, and currently set up with low action. Medium jumbo frets, gloss finish on body and headstock, satin finish on neck and fretboard, single-ply pickguard. Hasn't seen any action outside of a handful of bedroom practices. Weighs in at 8 lbs and 9.6 oz., comes with Fender soft gig bag and Stew Mac truss rod adjustment tool.
    Priced at $700 (PayPal) shipped within the continental US. Looking to sell this one quickly to help with a trip next month. I am again open to offers, but am only looking to sell, no trades.

    They made a few changes from the original PB-50, they use the term hybrid to account for the mix between modern and vintage specs. The changes include:
    • A satin finish on the neck (PB-50 was all gloss)
    • Medium jumbo frets (PB-50 had vintage style frets)
    • Bone nut (PB-50 had a synthetic nut)
    • Headstock has a visible slide decal for the vintage look
    • Headstock has a gloss finish
    • The serial number has been moved from the bottom of the neck to the back of the headstock
    • Vintage reverse-action tuners
    • Neck radius is 10" (PB-50 had a 7.25" radius)
    • Neck U-shape (1.675" nut width)
