    Hey folks, I've got a really nice Modified P bass that will blow your sox off. Total weight is 7lbs and plays very nice.

    Here are the mods I've done.

    Neck - complete pro fret work, including new bone nut, setup to play with very low string hight with no fret buzz. Black block stickers add a nice look.
    Body - light weight wood (solid wood, not laminate) completely sheilded to keep out unwanted noise. Parchment/Black/White pickguard.
    All hardware is gold and has some great old mojo and a relic'd vibe. Upgraded Dunlop Straplocks installed.
    Pickups have been upgraded to Seymour Duncan "Duncan Designed" units and sound full and punchy. I would say they sound as good if not better than your standard Fender units.
    Tone circuit is all new using USA CTS tone pots, Chiclettes style .047uF tone cap and heavy duty switchcraft jack.

    I have more money and time into this little bass than I care to think about. Need to move it ASAP.

    This is a great little bass with a few little bumps and bruises, but sounds and plays as good if not better than one costing hundreds more.

    My loss is your gain. You won't be disapointed.

    $200 shipped to ConUS. Overseas and international shipping O.K. just PM me for shipping quote.

    GEDC0354.

    Thanks for looking.

    You can see other basses I have for sale in my "showcase" threads listing in my signature.

    Thanks for looking.

    This is a sick little bass for the money. You can't buy a nice neck like this one for that kind of coin.

    Just sayin......

    Took some advice from the Reigning King of Vinyl Inlay Decals. It really made a visual difference. I think they add a bunch to the overall visual appeal of the bass.

    This little honey really plays like buttaah.

    It would make a perfect bass for the beginner or even an intermediate bass player.


    Trades welcome. I'm lookin for a light weight amp head. Gallian, MarkBass, Genz, TC, etc. or Even light weight Pro Audio style Power amps. Hit me up with what you got.

    Peace.

    Bumpage for some "P" bass love.

    $200 is not a lot of coin for a good player. Easily as good as any P bass costing hundreds more.

    Don't miss out. I'll garantee the sale. If you don't like it, send it back for a full refund minus shiping. I'm that confident.

    Cheers.

    I Can't believe that this little $200 P bass is still here. It is absolutely, in my mind, a better playing bass than any MIM P bass I have ever handled.

    I'll guarantee this sale. If you don't like it, ship it back and I'll refund your money (minus shipping costs).

    I am that confident that who ever buys it will like it.

    Wow, can't believe no one is jumping on this. O.K. I'm going to wait till the weekend, then I think it's time to part this one out.

    Any takers?

    Low action, no fret buzz and a guarentee? I'll have to see if I can find a couple hundred bucks in the next day or two.

    Still here. Anyone? You won't get a better bass for $200. Heck you'd be hard pressed to find a better bass for twice that.

    If I don't sell this by Sept 16 I'll part it out.

    Peace.
