    Fernandes Power Bass
    Neck and tuners are from the 70s, likely from the matsumoku factory. Tuners have a wonderful naturally aged patina. Neck was refretted at the lakland shop in 2012. amazing playing and feeling. Very fast. Nut width is 1.5" Scale length is actually 33.5" which makes this one feel extremely easy to play, especially if you are use to standard fender length.
    Body is a replacement, made by a local luthier. Finish is nitro. Color is a really cool reddish brown, that changes somewhat depending on the light. Pickups are Lakland/Hanson PJ set. Vintage wound.
    Bridge is a Fender FENDER High Mass Vintage (HMV) with dual design.
    Currently strung with tape wounds.
    bass is average weight.

    looking for $[DEL]475[/DEL] $450 shipped, paypal.

    line on headstock is not a crack, looks more like a flaw in the wood. under the finish.
