  1. Fender American Precision 5 – Sunburst, Flats

    $1000 + shipping. May consider trades too if it’s a good deal for me! But it would have to be a 5 string, 34”. I really love this bass because Fender really stepped it up on these new Precision 5s, but GAS got the better of me again.

    Condition: Just a few months old, 9.9/10, very light swirl on pickguard by the knobs, does not show up in photos.
    Body: Select alder.
    Weight: 8.5–9.0 lbs. according to digital scale; unusually light for a 5 string, especially a Fender 5.
    Scale: 34”.
    String Spacing At Bridge: Currently set at 18.5mm (Fender adjustable bridge).
    Nut Width: 1.875”
    Sound: One of the best P’s I’ve ever heard. Check out Ed Friedland’s review YouTube - Fender American Standard Precision 5
    Made In: USA.
    Serial #: 10033687
    Includes: New Fender Hardshell Flight Case, Chrome Flatwound strings.

    Sweet Bass! Any problem stringing through the body?

    I need one of these.
  4. I'm not exactly sure what you mean, but no, there were no problems stringing the extra long Chromes through the body of this bass. I'm not sure if that's why, but this one has a killer B!

    Some string manufacturers recommend not running flats through body, as it puts a sharp angle on them and can cause the windings to separate. I’ve personally never had problems with TI’s or Chromes though body.

    She iw beautiful and lightweight too! Bump for an awesome TBer.
  8. Thanks, Abe.
  9. Someone PM'd me asking about the neck profile and one of the things that's unique about the new P5s is that it's the same neck as the new American Jazz 5s; thin front-to-back, very comfortable with a smooth satin finish.
