Fender American Vintage ‘62 Re Issue (AVRI) Precision Bass built in the USA in 2003, all original & in excellent lightly used condition with just a few marks consistent with normal use, the worst by far is a small 4mm to 5mm impact mark near the bridge (please see photograph) which is very shallow & can't be seen 'off stage' and overall I would grade this as 9/10 in my humble opinion, especially for a Nitro finished 17 year old instrument.
Weight is a tad over 8.5 lbs according to my digital scales.
Nails the James Jamerson thing.
The Bass is set up with a nice low action and so plays really well, with a lovely true Precison Bass sound and excellent tonal variation.
Comes complete with the Original Hard Shell Case also built in the USA complete with all the Case Candy including the original Pickup and Bridge covers, which have never been fitted - so no holes in the body either side of the bridge - in fact, they are still sealed in the original bag from new. The case does have a few scuffs to the corners, but nothing major and comes complete with the two original keys - also still in a sealed bag.
Here is some info off T'interweb

Today we are featuring a Fender American Vintage ’62 Precision Bass in a beautiful three tone sunburst. This reissue instrument pays homage to a ground breaking year for the Fender Precision Bass. All of the classic details are present including the rosewood fretboard, tortoise shell pickguard, nitrocellulose lacquer finish and chrome bridge and pickup covers. The covers are shipped unmounted but are included in the accessory kit.
The “C” shape neck is super smooth to play and the classic single split-coil pickup provides that warm, full and fat tone that you have heard on so many of your favourite records!!

i would prefer Bank Transfer or Paypal F&F on collection, or prior to postage if someone has a reliable Courier they could send for it. I don’t have a box, but the case is built like a brick outhouse which would be well bubble wrapped and bagged.
