    I really adore this bass, but I just picked up another MIJ P-bass (Dragonfly) so this one must go! Please see the previous sale thread for more information and pictures - it is in the same condition as when I bought it. Excellent condition other than the small ding near the neck pocket (shown in the pictures below). $550 and we split shipping!

    This is a very high quality made-in-Japan bass with upgraded electronics. The bass originally had EMG pickups and EQ, but the previous owner found them a little sterile. He swapped them out for a Nordstrand NP4A and NJ4SE and an Audere 4 band preamp. I'll include the original electronics (along with the current Nordstrand/Audere setup) in the sale. Killer combination...

    Updated to reflect that I would not consider many trades at this point - I am looking to sell outright.

    How does this flatter neck radius
    Feel compared to fender's 9 1/2 --10 radius? It's looks like a great bass!

    To me, it just makes chording and playing in general easier BUT it is really a matter of personal preference. The strings will be more uniform in height with a flatter board. I do not notice much of a difference.
