Fender American Standard Precision 5 String SOLD!!!!
£950

Recommended Posts

Asking price [b]£900[/b].

I bought this from a fellow Basschat'r a couple of years ago, and it's been my regular touring bass since. From memory, I'm sure it's a 2009 build.
I'm based in Fife, Scotland and the bass is here for anyone wishing to demo it. Please PM me if you wish to arrange that.

Olympic White finish.
Tortoiseshell scratchplate (4-ply).
Alder Body.
Maple neck.
Rosewood fingerboard with white dots.

Nordstrand NP5F pickups. Since having these fitted, the bass now has a higher output, clearer lows and highs, and a classic P-Bass midrange.

Weight: 11lbs (just under 5kg).
34" scale.
20 frets.
High-mass bridge - quick release top loading or through body stringing.
Dunlop Straplox.

Condition is very good for a well-travelled bass. There's a small indentation on the side which I've included in the photobucket link, and some slight marks on the base near the lower strap button, but the back of the bass is virtually free from buckle rash. The bass truly is new in appearance!
The B string in the photos looks a bit loose because it's broken! It has since been restrung.

Chunky but very comfortable 'C' profile neck.

Includes a SKB Fender hardcase.

[b]£900 including UK delivery[/b]. Payment by Bank transfer.
Overseas shipping considered, at extra cost.

There's a pic of me with this bass on the Nordstrand endorsers' page:

Here's a live tv clip. Bass was recorded flat to the studio desk via my Avalon U5:

Thanks, but no :-) I've listed the instruments I'd consider trading for at the bottom of the add. Cheers!

Can't say how badly I want this bass! I've been looking at the Squier VM P5 but there's a good chance a little bit of money may be coming my way - just not sure exactly how soon it'll be. If it does, and in the unlikely event that this doesn't get snapped up by someone else before then, I'll be all over this one!
