    Fender Mike Dirnt Bass. It's in great condition and it's built like a tank. The hardware is first rate (Schaller tuners with a fender brand, Badass bridge). Has a "custom shop" '59 style P pickup - basically modelled after Dirnt's favorite antiquity II style pickups. Nice slab rosewood board and a thick neck - it's comfortable though due to a nut width that shoots the gap between a standard jazz and standard P. No significant scratches, no dents - just normal wear from use. I had the nut replaced with a hand cut Tusq nut (it had to be fabricated because of the unique nut width) It's setup and ready to go. It looks kind of grimy but I'll give it the once over before it gets to you - nice and shiny :D I also added a hipshot two string retainer for the E and Astrings to get a uniform string break angle for all strings. It works pretty well, but it can be easily removed.

    I'll ship it in a case anywhere in the 48 for $450

    Nope this one is made in mexico though save the nut (which I replaced anyway) - you'd never know. It's a seriously solid bass and if the super P bass tone is your thing and you don't mind a thick neck (not warwick thick though) this thing kicks.
    If I don't get any takers then it'll remain happily in my arsenal.
