    So, now that I've been playing bass for a year or two, and really loving it BTW, I decided I needed a proper P Bass and started the hunt. I was surprised at home many Fender's didn't do anything for me. Then this one popped up on here and I was smitten. I know not everyone digs the whole relic thing, but I do, love the played in feeling and look, but this one also sounds exactly as I wanted a good P bass to sound. Alder/RW, Gotoh hardware, Lollar pup, just a little over 8 lbs. I'm digging it, came strung with Chromes but I have some TI Flats on the way. Enough talk, pics or it didn't happen.

    Very nice! Congrats. I've loved the feel of every Nash I've played.
    That's a relatively light relic compared to some I've seen. Really like it.

    Congrats! Fell in love with a Nash PB57 in a store and walked out with it.
    1 month later tracked down a PB63 in the TB classifieds.
    LOVE my Nash basses.

    I could take or leave the relic looks. But the feel....oh so good. Nothing like a broken in, well loved neck. And although it's pseudo, it feels a lot like the real deal.

    I'd call that pretty darn close to perfection.

    As stated above glad you got it, I’ve had to stay off of the classifieds while it was up.

    Damn, just got back from practice, and now I know. TI Flats, tort guard p bass just lays it down. I rolled the fretboard, (which I'm kinda surprised BN doesn't do,) and gave the fretboard the gorgomyte treatment when I put the TIs on, and wow, this gives me crazy thoughts of selling off the herd.

    Yes, Gorgomyte Fret And Fingerboard Conditioner Great stuff, regardless of the cheesy website. I use it on every guitar/bass I bring in and use it on all my instruments at least 2x a year. Nicely conditions the fretboard and does a great job of polishing the frets.

    Yay!!! Now that is a beautiful looking bass. The trouble begins when some moron uses a belt sander to imitate that. 'Tain't happenin'. No problem with a carefully done, authentic relic job.
