Fullerton. This was Fender's top-of-the-line back then. All electronics are original, complete, and functioning. 2 volume knobs & 1 tone knob. Switches are: pickup selector & a tone variant. The output jack is a bit crackly & should probably be fixed/ replaced.
    These usually sell for much more, but this one has cosmetic issues with dings & such, so price is adjusted accordingly.
    There is a ding on the treble-side horn, a ding on the e-string side horn, its missing one of the "fine tuners" on the bridge. Tuners were replaced with reverse tuners. Some oxidation on bridge & tuners. Small cosmetic crack near truss adjustment hole. This was very thoroughly checked out by a reputable local tech & given a clean ok. This is only cosmetic, as the truss rod does turn freely( Fender"dual-action" truss rod). Neck has proper relief & is stable. The string tree was replaced, & whoever did it, did a really poor job.
    Reason for selling: When I was 17, I saved up & I bought a similar one brand new in 1985, then had it stolen after 1 year. This one is the exact same color, though it's a different bass (not my old one). I jumped at the chance to buy this one local, but am not really bonding with it.
    Price Includes domestic US shipping & a case for protection. PayPal preferred.

    I use to own a Walnut Elite. Without a doubt the best P-bass I have every owned! I wish they would reissue this EXACT model. This is a great deal too. I sold my bass for hundreds more.
