    All Original Gorgeous 1978 Fender Precision Bass Black/Black/Maple in EXCELLENT Shape!!
    I'm the 2nd Owner.:hyper:
    The finish is near perfect , no dings or scratches, and the Original frets have almost ZERO wear. Neck is nice and thin like a Jazz Bass and is pretty light and lively , will ship with the Original bridge reinstalled instead of the BadAss II, a set of Flats, and the bridge Cover. What you see in the pics are reflections of the sky and sidewalk, the pickguard is perfect and flat with no swirling.

    Original Grey bottom Pickup sounds wonderful and measures at 8.16 Ohms.Comes with the OHSC in good shape. Weighs right around 9 lbs.
    Just a Classic late 70's P Bass that sounds amazing and plays really well.
    $1599 plus actual Fedex boxing/shipping/insurance. In fact, I'll even split the shipping with you. This Classic Iconic Black P-bass will put a smile on your face :D

    Buy with confidence and feel free to call me at 727-735-5350 with any questions.
    Thanks! Rick
    I "may" consider taking a Japanese P-Bass in partial trade ( any color except candy Apple red) or will consider other trades plus cash, let me know what you have.

    Might be just what I'm looking for. Do you have a weight?

    Absolutely love a late 70's P Bass. IMO these has a specific sound inherent of the era. A little more punch, grunt, and snap that I have been unable to duplicate with modern P Basses. I have a 78 with the same color combo.

    I want this bass! I am sure it's amazing. But if I were you I wouldn't sell it.

    I bought the exact same bass in 1976.... Heavy with monster tone. Around 1980 had it defretted and added a Pyramid Guitars of Detroit humbucker bridge pickup, BadAss bridge (since swapped in a GOTOH).

    Very nice bass here, have you made your decision about selling it or not? Also, are the screws on the pickguard screwed in very tight? It looks like it, you can see a dent around them on the pickguard...
