    Reduced to $349. Make me an offer! Treasure! An easy to play, very light mid-80s vintage Squier Bullet Bass designed by Fender, made in Japan during their best production years, using USA Tele neck and Mustang pickups.

    Has that highly sought SQ serial number that confirms mid-80s date. Lightweight 4 string bass, around 8 pounds. Super low action, ready to play, comfortable neck. -edit- 34" scale.

    Very good condition. Pickups, controls, tuners all work. Just plug it in and you've got vintage P sound. Some expected signs of use, some dings I've tried to picture. Passive bass. No batteries needed.

    On feebay these are selling for $495, $595, $650. Check for yourself.

    $349 carefully packed in thin gig bag.

    It's the full 34". Incredibly low action. Intonation is right on.

    Here's a pic that shows the most visible ding.

    The action on this sweetie is incredible: L O W. Wish I could take credit for the pro setup, though I didn't do this one.
