A great sounding P bass with one of the prettiest candy apple red finishes around, and a joy to play on gigs and sessions. This is one of my keep forever basses, though changes in my situation this year......uh....you know the rest. Maple neck, strung with La Bella Deep Talkin' Flats, modeled after the strings that Jamerson loved. Great tone! Top quality build from the highly sought-after E series basses made in Japan in the early 80s; serial number E928828, which I believe is '84. Finish looks new with only one blemish. Older Fender hard shell case in good condition included, possibly original, not sure, though it is the case design from that period. The original pickups are included, I swapped in a pair of Seymour Duncan Basslines SPB-1. I don't recall why I changed them, though I left them in. Posted $869 price includes shipping east of Mississippi. Local sale is $825, reasonable distance in greater north Boston area. Price with shipping west of Mississippi is $899. I'm a fanatic packer. Can ship next day by FedEx. Happy to chat by phone if you wish. Not interested in trades.
