    Late '70s Japanese "stone logo" Fernandes precision with an EMG GZR Pickup. The neck is amazing, almost a soft V or old-school deep Jazz neck. Finish is aged Oly White on an ash body, skunk-striped maple neck with some nice grain on the fretboard, 1.5" jazz bass nut width and weighs 9.4 pounds. Definitely a player’s bass, this has a tight neck pocket, excellent balance and plays great. As can be seen in the pics, there are two sticker shadows from the finish aging, but they don’t stand out all that much. The action is comfortable, and the Geezer pickups growl like they should. Comes with padded gig bag for the price, or for a bit more I can provide a hard case. Smoke-free, pet-free environment. This is basically like a '70s Precision with an "A" width neck.

    I bought this from another TBer a year ago, and it's a great bass. Unfortunately expenses have been high lately and I need to do some herd thinning. The bass is exactly as it was when I bought it, so I'm reusing the same pictures (his photography skills are better than mine). It's been in my smoke-free house the entire time. The only thing different about the bass since these pictures were taken, is that the strings have been changed.

    Asking $485 shipped CONUS with gig bag. Hard case available for a bit more.

  2. OK Folks. So here's the deal... I live in the middle of nowhere and TPAUL probably lives closer to me than any other talkbasser. He haunts me with his postings. Here's another really cool looking bass he's listed at a reasonable price. Mrs. Boombloom discourages me from buying more basses from him. Help me out. Thanks.

    I love this bass and am in the market for one like it, but I can't afford to spend any money at all right now. So I'll just cross my fingers and if noone buys this in whatever amount of time it takes me to get ahead of my expenses, I'll certainly buy it.
