    I'm selling a couple basses to finance a new outdoor stage rig for our summer tour. This bass is a rare two tone sunburst finish, as new with Fender ATA case and all case candy as it came from the factory. The neck feels great. One piece maple neck/fretboard with rolled edges. This came with a ding on the side of the headstock (not on the front or back of the headstock). It was professionally, very lighted sanded and all looks brand new again. If you look close it was where the point of the headstock is on the treble side under the F on the Fender logo. Comes with Fender Mint pickguard, although it just looks like a nice off white to my eye.
    $875 Shipped USA lower 48 states.
    Really great, thumpy bass with very even tones with the Duncan pickup, but I need to raise some coinage.

    Monday bumpage for a really nice bass. Why pay the same for a foreign made Fender bass when you can have a USA Fender.

    Interesting headstock reshaping. It looks like the ding repair inspired shaping close to the original early 50's shape.
