Fender Tony Franklin Fretless P Bass Sunburst
£1100

Recommended Posts

[color=#1D2129][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Fender P Tony Franklin fretless - [s]£1,100[/s] £1,000[/font][/color]
[color=#1D2129][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Beautiful sunburst nitro cellulose finish, ebony fret board with minimum wear (it was always strung with nylon coated flat wounds), gorgeous tone, as expected. Weight 4.4 kg according to my scale.[/font][/color]

[color=#1D2129][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]The following modifications/upgrades were made (can be easily restored to original as all the original parts will be included):
- Dunlop straplocks fitted
- "F" neck plate replaced the Franklin plate
- D-tuner replaced with regular Fender tuner
- La Bella white nylon flat wound strings (60/70/94/115)[/font][/color]

[color=#1D2129][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Just given it a good look over, and it has two things worth mentioning:
- 3mm chip on the shoulder (hidden by right arm when playing).
- The finish has also bubbled slightly under three corners of the neck plate, which you can only see at certain angles. A tiny blob of black nitro was applied to one of the corners (see the last pic).[/font][/color]
[color=#1D2129][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Other then that the bass is clean, no snail trails of any sort. Case candy, hard case etc.[/font][/color]

Perhaps I asked too much for the bass retailing £1,850 brand new. Price drop to £1,000

If I buy this can you offer any guarantee that I will be able to play like TF?

If so I'll take it now.

Surprised this hasn't gone, this is about as good as fretless basses get, especially at this price.

Hey! I can do without your help.. if you don't mind!

If this was a 5er I'd be in serious trouble.
