    I've got a beautiful P5 that I need to sell. It has been upgraded with a badass V bridge and a set of DR nickel lo-riders. This bass is a particularly nice example of the new 2008 fenders, with a very even neck, tons of output, and great tone. I've simply found that I'm too addicted to my '72P that fits me perfectly for this bass to see any gig time.

    The only flaw are some small neck pocket finish cracks, which is what happens when the consumer asks Fender to make the neck pocket really really tight like this one is. Other than that, the bass is mint, as is the OHSC and all case candy (unused strap, cable, polish cloth, manual).

    Includes the original bridge, but the bass will not restore perfectly to stock due to the extra holes drilled for the badass. The badass gives the bass great clarity and adjustability.

    Here is the photo from when it was new, I'll try to get some current photos if necessary.

    Please send an email through talkbass if interested.

    $1000 shipped. Trades are possible, though I am quite picky :D

    I didn't do the swap on this bass (bought it this way), but have done badass/stock experiments on others, and the added mass of the bridge definitely changes the sound. Its not a better or worse thing, just different. A little more clarity and focus with the badass, a little more stringyness and woodieness with the low mass bridge.

    How heavy is the bass? Love Oly White/Tort. Mmmm. Not sure I want the Badass bridge though. I played a stock '08 Precision 5 in a store and thought it was great the way it was.

    My bathroom scale says 9.5lbs ... nice and light for a 5.

    The original bridge is included if you want to swap back, you'd just want to fill that extra hole for cosmetics. It'd be a cheap job for any good tech. The badass is a really nice bridge.

    A late model Zon 5 with a truss rod, a modulus flea 5 with MM+J pickups, maybe a USA G&L L2500, a great '70s style J (4 or 5), a Lakland Decade, a killer vibey hollowbody, a Sadowsky MV5.
