    Price:
    390
    Strings:
    4
    Location:
    Massachusetts
    30" short scale. Late 90's sea foam green with a bunch of upgrades including: Hipshot Ultralight tuners, Dimarzio humbucking pickup, graphtech bridge saddles and TI Jazz Flat strings. Sounds good and is in very good shape with a few minor dings and scratches.

    This is a really great light weight (7.5 lb) players bass it balances nicely on a strap with absolutely no neck dive. No hum with the new pickup. The original single coil hummed like crazy. I just can't play anything without 5 strings these days.

    Comes with a decent fender gig bag

    Local sale preferred, but will ship if you pay for the pack and ship at Fedex.

    Since you didn't mention it, I assume the original parts (pickup, tuners) are gone?

    The ears on the tuners rattled. I need to look around, I might have them and would either include them in the sale or sell separately.

    I found the original tuners complete with the bushings and all of the screws and also the bridge saddles. Couldn't find the pickup

    what is the action like? Can the truss rod handle the flats? I had a tele neck give up the ghost after putting flats on it so that is why I'm asking

    The TI Jazz flats are pretty low tension so there is no problem. Action is medium to low and really easy to play.

    Tell me about that pickup. Did it sound good? I just bought one of these basses.

    Honestly the original pickup sounds better if you can handle the hum. The Dimarzio has no hum and high output, but it was kind of dull sounding. I'm not sure how it would have sounded at a gig because I never played it out. It might also sound better with round wound strings and the DiMarzio. Wasn't a great match to the TI's if you want any sparkle. It was kind of like a thuddy Pbass sound but without the Pbass moan. I'd suggest playing it as is for a while before ripping it apart.

    The pups are famous, but I couldn't deal with the noise. Swapped mine out for a Duncan Tele-Stack. Booms at the low end, almost twangs at the top.
