    Great bass! Bought it brand new in 2012 and it was my go-to gigging bass for 3 years. Everything about it is pro! So easy to play... and fantastic sounding with a PJ configuration. The neck is in perfect condition. There are small dings and chips around the edges of the body (see the pics). No significant fret wear. Hardware is all original (but I did add a Hipshot Drop D tuner at one point but have since removed it).

    Here are some of the features that make this instrument so chill:
    Select Alder body w/Nitrocellulose Lacquer Finish... Olympic White
    Maple neck, Modern “C” Shape w/Nitrocellulose Lacquer Finish
    Maple fretboard, 9.5” Radius
    Tony Franklin American Precision Bass Split Single-Coil Pickup (Matte Finish Pickup Covers)
    Tony Franklin Jazz Bass Single-Coil Pickup with Hex Screw Pole Pieces (Ceramic Bar Magnet)
    3-Position pickup selector switch
    American Vintage ‘70s Precision® Bass with Single Groove Saddles
    1.625" nut width synthetic bone
    9 lbs

    The sale also includes the black tolex OHSC by G&G in excellent condition and the original Fender strap that came with the bass. The original cable that came with the bass unfortunately is long gone. :)

    $1000 shipped CONUSA. PayPal. No trades!

    Always wanted one of these. They don’t come around often in white and they are no longer made.

  4. I'd be all over this if I did not have the same one. Really nice necks on these.

    I have the amber one. Best Fender I've ever owned. Have definitely considered getting the white one unfortunately no $ at the moment.

    Actually it was the amber model that caught my attention. Saw a band and the bassist was playing one. Love a P/J config. Love a P Bass so it was love at first sight. You're right, one of the best Fender I've owned.
