    1989 Fender Custom Shop Kubicki w/drop D (purchased new in 1992, I am the original owner). Excellent condition for 21 year old bass. No nicks, dings, etc. Never gigged. Studio use in 1992 then in storage with cartage company until last month. Complete set up and fret dressing at one of LA's top shops. Plays and sounds great. All electronics work. Some paint cracking on the body that, from what I've read, is common on these basses of this vintage. Have original purchase receipt. Original hard shell case included.

    I've posted some low res pictures and will make an effort to get better posted soon. Color is a bit deeper in hue than it appears in these pics. PM if you'd like some additional and / or higher resolution pictures.

    I'm asking $2000 obo CONUS. If you're in LA we can arrange to meet for an in person look.

    Neck: Laminated hard rock maple; bolt on
    Fingerboard: Ebony; 71/2 inch radius

    Neck Width at Nut: 1 17/32 inches at the nut
    Neck Width at 23rd: 2 15/32 inches

    It's definitely not red. It's sort of a deep (dark?) hue pink. It's a unique and interesting color. I'll look for a Pantone chart and try and match up the color to a standard color. Thanks for asking.

    I am totally interested....(need to move one thing first!!!)
     
  8. It's actually called Rasberry. I owned one of that color. It's a really cool color. And rare. If I had the money I would have bought it. Go for it Jaymi. Just remember it's not pink. ;)

    Hard to go wrong with an Ex factor. Nice bass, I've had more hours on them than any other.

    Just a quick update for you folks that PM'd me regarding the bass. The date of manufacture is actually September 1989 according to Fender, not '91 or '92. It was purchased new by me in '92 from an authorized dealer.
