    I am putting some feelers out on my Tony Franklin Fretted "Parts Bass". The body is a Tony Franklin US made sunburst Precision from 2011 and has had an American Standard bridge on it (previous owner). This body has been played and I have tried my best to capture the wear on the body...this is not pristine, but not abused..it's a player body...it has been played. (trying to be forthright here) The neck is a like new, no fret-wear, no nicks or scratches etc from a 2013 Fender American Special P-bass. It is currently strung with fresh D'Addario Nickel Rounds and has killer tone. Weighs in at hair over 9 pounds. Asking $850 and actual shipping...which will obviously vary depending on where you are located. You can also pick it up in the Raleigh NC area. No case, just bass...will be packed extremely well, boxed and shipped with tracking. Please feel free to PM me if you are interested or have any detailed questions.Thanks! Bass is sold..but thanks for looking!

    Hmmmm. Very interesting. I love the combination of the awesome feeling American Special neck and the Franklin body. I may have to try to sell something...
     
  3. It really is a sweet ride but I keep going back to my American Standard J bass that I bought new in 1997. I feel like I am cheating on her whenever I play something else...and that tone. I am unlike most of the TBer's here where I am a minimalist when it comes to basses and I can only play one at a time. :)
