Another of my basses is going up for sale as I thin the heard to redirect funds to other musical purchases. This beautiful, lyrical, American made specimen of the Fender Artist Series kind has been lightly used by me (original owner). All it has is a single dent near the jack (pictured below).The finish is Nitrocellulose which ages quite nicely. But it's more delicate to wear and tear. The fretboard has normal wear, is it came with flats which I kept for a while to get a more upright tone. I then went all Uhm... Jaco with it and put Roundwounds. And of course, once I did that the trademark "mwah" came out in spades. I also decided to install the tort pickguard for a more classic look. And lastly added the copper bridge grounding strip cause it's both functional and just looks plain cool (all these items came with the instrument case-candy). BTW All the case candy is included as well: bridge and neck covers, 1/4 inch cable, strap, adhesive foam mute, etc... When it comes down to sound, this bass can do more than just the Jaco tone. The neck pickup renders a very deep, round woody tone. If you couple that with a foam mute you can get real good upright-ish tones. Another thing of note is that all the open strings ring tighter and more defined than many Jazz Basses I've tried. Selling for $1,350.00 (PAYPAL preferred) Price includes insured FedEx shipping within the continental US. Check out the sound sample I recorded below so you can hear the tone this thing has.
