  1. Hello TBers. I have purchased a number of items on TB over the past years but never sold anything. My thanks to this great community for all the knowledge and wisdom shared and products bought / sold. This is my first attempt at a sale and at posting pictures so bear with me.

    I went a bit nuts and bought too many Fender Japan P-basses. I have always loved the quality and feel of these instruments, especially at the $500-$700 price point. Well I am playing mostly my Jazz these days and these guys deserve to be played and enjoyed. I am keeping a couple, but selling these four.

    PRICE DROP!! $500 gets your choice!! Shipping CONUS included. Also included with each bass is a generic (SKG, road runner, etc.) hard case with working latches and in Ok condition (some exterior scuffs and discoloration).

    Bass #4 - Foto Flame has been SOLD!

    Please PM me for any additional information. Price is firm unless you are local to Orange County, CA and will pickup. Will consider trades for 4-string, passive basses, but a sale is perferred. Paypal payment. Thanks.

    I will be adding separate listings below for each of the basses. I also have a loaded body and neck from a 57RI Japan p-bass that I will be posting in the parts area. Thanks!

    Likewise, I prefer mine to US made other than Fullertons.
    Great basses, great prices.
    The Foto-flames generally have a particularly wicked dark tone.
     
  9. PM's responded. Some great trade offers, but really need to clear some room. All 4 p-basses still available.

    And thanks for the love on the MIJ axes. These 4 are all great examples of Fuji-Gen quality.
     
  10. Possible deal pending on the black/white/maple p-bass. Pictures owed to another Tb'er will be sent this morning.

    I will also entertain requests to part out these basses, since they will likely end up on eBay if they don't sell here. PM me with any offers / questions.

    Thanks!
     
  11. Bass #4 has been sold. Heading to IL tomorrow. Thanks Matthew!

    Basses #1-3 Still available - make an offer!
     
  12. Bump for PRICE DROP - $500 for any of the 3 remaining p-basses! Includes shipping and HSC.

  18. An update...

    P-bass #3 (black/white) is SOLD and off to NC. Thanks Rob! :hyper:

    P-bass #2 (black/tort) is STILL AVAILABLE. Please send any offers. I will likely close down this post and make a new one just for the one remaining bass.
