    Anyone heard of these? it's a fender p-bass special but it's offered in a flat black finish. The guy that the store told me it was avalible for a "limited time". i was just wondering if anyone had any info about this "limited" bass, as in how many this made and where they are offered. thanks

    the word from a fender rep in the UK is that they are a 'limited' run.... but he couldnt say how many... or when they are gonna stop making them. I was offered one at £449..... there RRP seems to be £599

    I played one at Daddy's Junky Music in Shrewsbury MA, Sweet sounding and playing bass with a $499.99 price tag, The finish was funky (it liked fingerprints) but cool.
    I liked it and told them it played and sounded better than the 83 P they had.
    The neck is Jazz shaped and it had a nice Chocolate brown rosewood board. It looked nicely put together and it was set up nice. I almost put it on layaway but something about the finish, it wasn't me.
    Great bass, Great price!
