    So with my final bill to get my G&L SB-1 out of the shop - I have to let this bass go.

    I assembled it last year. It's all MIJ parts with all hipshot hardware (has a brass b-style bridge now) , detuner, and a fralin pickup now (Fralin has some rusting on the poles.)

    No need to mod - as this bass is already at the top of the heap in terms of parts.

    Great condition - only one ding 3 inches from the butt strap pin.

    Plays great - ships with flats.

    Here's the build thread http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=392964&highlight=MIJ+p-bass+hipshot

    Right now it has a black PG - but you'll get the Tort PG as well.

    Ideally I'd like to ship this one in a case as all I have is a gig bag. If you are interested - I'll buy an SKB case to ship at your expense - or you can buy or ship a case to me and I'll turn it around with the bass.

    I'll also ship in the gig bag heavily bubble wrapped too.



    $450 plus shipping in CONUS

    If you have any interest in an acoustic guitar thats about the same value, or a little bit more, let me know.

    Body is 100% alder. It's a 62 reissue body from japan. the neck is a 70s MIJ reissue.

    Please read the thread - the whole BOM for the bass as well as the prices for the cost of components are there.

    I hope someone jumps on this - because I need to get my G&L out of the shop.

    good looking bass and I am sure it sounds great too. A question in the build thread you mention something about screws in the neck pocket - was that taken care of or was that a problem at all?

    Wodock, It hasn't given me a problem.

    Action is great - nice and low - not too low.

    FWIW - I always played it with flats.

    PRICE DROP!!!!

    I can't go much lower than this without taking a total bath, hopefully someone found some cash in an easter egg and is dying for a japanese P-bass with some of the best hardware money can buy.

    It's hard to tell the quality of the finish from the pictures. Is it the original paint or has it been redone? If its a refinish, does it look glossy and smooth? Any dents/dings?
  18. BassJunkie730


    Feb 3, 2005
    Finish is original and great - it's only from 2007.

    There is a ding on the butt of the bass mentioned above.
