    **Update - Pots replaced and sounds great! Bass is in full working condition. Better updated pics on Page 3, or see the video here....



    Excellent condition all over. Everyone is right about these necks- they feel really amazing - I think because of the radius on the frets/fingerboard. Has a string-thru bridge with just installed brand new rotosound 66 Swing Bass Strings. Vintage style tuners. Features the infamous Stinglay. Made in Japan. Includes a hardshell case as shown.

    $695, now $625 $615 $599 shipped CONUS!

    This is actually a mid 50s pbass style bass, not a tele

    that's why I wrote "tele style." the headstock looks like a tele to me, so i think of it that way ;)

    thanks for pointing that out though. I just read up and it is a precision although not an exact replica of the old p-basses. the main difference between those is that the Sting bass has a contoured body compared to the slab body. people (me included) seem to prefer the comfort of the added contour. buy it now and let us know what you think! :bassist:

    Actually, in 54, Fender added contoured bodies to the Precision bass, which is the exact bass that Stings signature bass is modeled after, his 54 Precision.
    The Telecaster bass came out in the late 60s and was based on the 50s slab bodied precisions of the early 50s.

    Bump- make me an offer! I've had some interest but no paypal payments yet.

    Update there are a few tiny dings in the tip of the headstock on the backside. Small and typical- I'll post a pic tonight or tomorrow.

    *Update - fully fixed and playable!

    Well, I've had interest but I feel the disconnected tone pots is affecting interest. I thought people would want to upgrade it anyway so wouldnt care too much about it. I'm going to order the new pots this week and install them so I can offer it 100% fully functional.
