    I'm selling my fretted, amber nitro finish, Fender Tony Franklin 4-string P/J bass that I purchased new in 2010 from Sam Ash. Included are all original accessories like strap, tool, and hard shell case, plus paperwork. I had the electronics upgraded by well respected shop Twelfth Fret to include a better vol pot with Mallory treble bleed, better pup selector, Rothstein passive pull-out tone circuit with upgraded Alessandro cap, A Nordstrang NJ4SV J pup and a Lindy Fralin P pup. All upgraded parts were also bought new by me, and all original parts are included with the sale as well. Bass usually had TI Jazz Flats on, but I'll ship with a nearly-new set of DR Marcus Miller medium-lights installed.

    The only major ding are two bumps on the side towards the bottom near the electronics. This is pictured in the detail shot below. I never removed the pick guard plastic so it looks a bit nasty in the photo but most of it is still intact for a fresh black below should you (likely) choose to peel it off yourself.

    Price is $1350 via Paypal. I cannot accept trades. I'll have the bass professionally packaged and shipped at a UPS store.

    I know you are, but what am I?
    I have the same one, w/o mods. Really a great playing bass, very well constructed, nice thick tone, looks good, too.
