    I've got an early '80s Hondo Longhorn that has served me well, but I recently built myself a P-Bass that is getting all the P-Action, and I need to move this one on down the road.

    Cream finish that fades to a copper at the edges, and someone installed a metal pickup surround which looks really cool so I kept it on there.

    I currently have a set of LaBella 760FL flatwounds on her which are fully broken in (about 2 years or so of use) and a Dimarzio Area P (Alnico 2) pickup which sounds great. I will include the original Hondo "Dimarzio Model P"-style generic pickup as well as a new set of All Parts cream P covers. (Still in package) The bass has the original brass nut and bridge, and includes a well-worn original brown pleather case that is not the greatest but serviceable.

    I have also swapped the old .047uf cap out for an Orange Drop .1uf.

    THE BAD: (Ok, not SO bad...)
    When swapping pickups, the old pickup screws were incredibly locked up. I had to remove the screws, and in the case of the bottom screw (high string side) a piece of the screw tip remains embedded in the wood. I installed the new Area P pickup around this issue, but if you want to get maximum height adjustment ability you will probably want to go in & clean this up. Just needs a little TLC, but all wiring & electronics are 100% and if it doesn't bug you then you could just leave it & have a fully functional bass.

    I really don't want to ship an inexpensive bass like this if I can help it. I'm in central Washington State. If you want to pick it up, I'l buy you a coffee.

    If you want it shipped, I'll definitely pack it well but request that buyer pays full ACTUAL shipping.

    I've had a bit of interest but this is still available.
    Low price for an awesome, unique bass.
