    Ladies and Gentlemen... weighing in at 9lb 5.1oz is this lovely 2002 Fender USA '75 Reissue, made in a very limited quantity for the European market.

    Featuring an alder body, slim maple neck and beautiful rosewood board with binding and pearloid block inlays! Currently plays with super low action with a set of GHS round-core boomers, 45-105.

    This bass plays, looks and sounds awesome, and I've given it a few upgrades:

    - Genuine Fender USA Tortoise Pickguard
    - Hipshot A Style Brass Bridge
    - Fender Pure Vintage '74 Pickups
    - Dunlop Traditional Strap Locks
    - Volume/Blend/Tone control layout done by a skilled tech here in Philadelphia
    - Gotoh Reverse wind Res-O-Lite Tuners - seeing as this is a lightweight bass this really helped with balance.

    Some things from the previous owner that are worth mentioning:

    - Some light cosmetic bumps and bruises which I've done my best to photograph, mostly on the back of the instrument/in other inconspicuous locations. It also looks like the hole for the top strap button was repaired at some point.
    - A small route for a 9V battery under the pickguard. I kept this bass passive but this would come in handy if you wanted to drop a preamp in!
    - A sexy devil chick sticker on the back, which I decided to leave on, what the heck. You can take it off if you want.

    The metal covers, original tuners, original white pickguard, Bridge foam mute, original bridge, original strap buttons, strap and other case candy are included in the beautiful original hardshell case.

    Please feel free to reach out with any questions. PRICE DROP TO $1600 shipped in the Continental USA, or local pickup in the Philly/NJ/Delaware area. I prefer to sell but am not completely opposed to trades, and here are some things that would interest me:
    - Fender Custom Shop
    - Fender AVRI
    - Medium Scale Basses
    - BIG fan of high-end Japanese basses such as Moon/Atelier Z

    Looking forward to hearing from ya!
