    Up for sale (or a really good trade) is this MIM 50's Precision bass.

    Link to the original Fender specs:
    http://www.fender.com/series/classi...board-black-gold-anodized-aluminum-pickguard/

    Highlights:
    Alder body, black with anodized gold PG
    1.75" all maple neck with really nice gloss finish

    I'm the second owner and have had it for a very short time - long enough to know that it's a great instrument with a great sound, but my hands just don't like the neck profile at 1.75". Neck is perfect and action is fairly low. I've seen and heard all the positive comments about these necks, but I'm more of a Jazz neck guy.

    Strung with Chrome Half-rounds - sounds amazing. No case, but will be well packed and shipped from my business.

    PRICE DROP: [DEL]$550 [/DEL]Now $500 this weekend only, shipped CONUS & Canada. Local sale = lower $.

    Trade bait: Fender Aerodyne or Power Jazz basses. Or make an offer - you never know. I could also downgrade + your $$/parts?

    Extremely light wear on the back - could probably be buffed out entirely.

    Had some interesting trade offers, but "more bass" than I'm looking for.

    Not into 5/6 strings or adding a bunch of $$ to the deal.

    TGIF bump.

    Skip a day and I drop to page 12 - wow!

    PMs answered. Had some great offers in terms of value, but not items I would make direct use of and would have to move on again... so the added value disappears when extra headache is factored in. Waiting a little longer to see if a more direct deal materializes, I guess.

    I have brand new, still in the package chrome bridge and pup covers that I will include in any sale.

    If anyone has questions or wants to see any additional pics, just let me know.

    Still getting trade deals, but nothing to bite on yet...

    I would also consider trading for a newer Class 2 amp + cash, depending on what you've got.

    Thanks altamont, but I'm not sure you'd like the amount of $$ I'd want to even it out - I'm motivated to make a cash (paypal) sale as I have my eye on another item that is FS only.

    Someone make me a good offer.
