    Well, I wasn't going to sell it but I don't think I'm going to like the neck very much and I'm not going to put $$ into it to get a jazz neck. Last week I had Bill Nash fix a broken screw in the bridge and a slight crack in the neck pocket (which I'm being told is part of the relic'ing process). Nevertheless, he took care of it and it now looks like a small scratch. The bass is about 9.75 lbs and sounds awesome (even acoustically) and that usually means good things for the amplified sound. It has a Duncan vintage pickup which I'm a big fan of and no doubt Bill Nash is an artist when it comes to relic'ing. Probably one of the very best. Ash body, maple neck...hard to beat overall. Comes with the Nash gigbag but there never was an decal for the neck so it sports only his signature on the back of the headstock. Asking $1100 (shipped in US 48) as I have only had it for a little over 2 weeks so it's...new like only way relic'd. One of the best P-Basses I've ever played (really).

    I think these basses go for $1599 street. It will go for more on evilbay if you don't get a bite.
     
  4. the company thats makes this bass is "Nash" right? or is it a fender that has had "a nash custom job?" sorry for my ignorance, i've just never heard of nash.

    In a way he is. He uses Fender licsensed parts.

    However, he has no ties to Fender as a company. I think Fender actually resents that he does such a good relic job, and it takes away from their custom shop business. Doesn't matter though, Fender makes sooooo much money.
