    Very nice bass. Sounds great and plays great. Has Basslines pickup installed. Includes a gig bag.

    The first set of pictures were taken inside, with fluorescent lighting. The outside shots were with the same camera... bottom line is that it's Fiesta red.

    I took the second set of images in response to questions about condition... It's a bit hard to tell what dings/scratches are on it since it came from the factory because is "Roadworn" in the first place, but here's the best I can do showing all the angles and some close ups. Happy to take more pics for anyone that wants more. It has quite a few dings, scratches and paint missing, but that's the point of it.

    Overall, this is a really great bass and it's served me well. It's a light bass, can't say the weight exactly because I don't have an accurate scale, but I've stood with it for many 2+ hour practices with it with no problem at all. Its been my main player for about the past year in our P&W band, but I have started using my NSDesign EUB there more and more, including quite a bit of arco, so this one is just sitting at home.

    I saw a bass just like this in a Long and McQuade store not too long ago. Fiesta Red is still my favorite color for Fenders. Bump for a sick bass.

    Is this the Roadworn series, or actually...roadworn?
     
  8. I have one of these. I've owned several P's over the years: MIA, CS.....and this one is my favorite by far. As Charleton Heston once said: "outta my cold, dead hands!"

    In answer to a question above, it's the Roadworn series. I've added quite a few more pictures and added to the description in answer to some PM's.

    If I hadn't gotten on the CIJ 70's GC deal recently I'd be all over this. Beautiful instruments and a good deal.

    I do not have the original pickups, sorry. The bass came to me with the Basslines installed. They sound awesome in this bass. I do accept paypal.

    I'm actually considering a trade offer now, so yes, I'm open to something interesting. PM me if you have something in mind....

    I like fretless basses, ideally, I'd pick up another Zeta Prism fretless. I had one a couple of years ago and should not have sold it.
     
  16. Questions:

    1) What's the nut width on these, 1.625 or 1.75?
    2) What's the neck profile front-to-back - slim, full, chunky, baseball bat?
    3) Price adjustment for pickup (I go to Raleigh frequently)?
    4) Any update on weight? (a bathroom scale estimate would be fine)
    5) Any interest in Jazz fretless + cash? (see my sig)

    1 and 2. It has a 1.75" nut width and a "C" Shape neck with a 7.25".... I'd call it a full shape.
    3. For local pickup/cash I'd sell for $575.
    4. I'll get it on a scale later today.
    5. Not interested in a a Jazz bass at this time, thanks.

    Thanks,
