Selling my 2014 Fender American Special Precision in Sunburst with rosewood fretboard.
This run of specials went from 2011 to 2015.

I took this in a trade but unfortunately it's a bit heavier than I can cope with at 9lb. It's not heavy for a P but I have health issues so it must move on.
Its in very good condition. There is a shallow ding on the back of the headstock which so far I have not been able to photograph but if the rain holds off I'll get outside this evening and try again.
I did have Hipshot Ultralite tuners fitted for a while but I have put it back to stock. The extra tiny hole that is needed for the Hipshots is completely covered by the original tuners.
The American Specials have a regular modern P nut width, but the neck is a bit less chunky than the American Standard.
It's currently strung with a nicely settled set of Thomastik TI flats with a medium action. It's a brilliant sounding bass that I have been using in a Big Band playing swing and big band jazz. It does the Duck Dunn thing very well, and of course can go all rocky with roundwounds too.
Also comes with a Kinsman hardcase that is in pretty good condition. If you don't want the case I can knock £25 off.
£725 collected from Northants, or I might be able to meet you somewhere if it's not too far.
I'm not looking for trades unless you have something under 8lb. Cannot be even an ounce over. If there is a trade I will be bringing my scales!
I'm in need of a jazz bass and have a couple of othe precisions so this is up for sale / trade for a decent jazz.
1978 Fender Pbass with dimarzio jazz bridge pickup fitted and later refinished in red (was sunburst I believe).
This is a vintage instrument; great playing and sounding bass that has been well gigged but is in perfect working order. Recently setup by the one and only Bass Doc £1500 trade value. £1250 cash price.
Collection from Hexham / Newcastle or will post at buyers expense.
Don't often do this but with this one I thought I must..
So, there I was in my local music shop in Bognor Regis (Mike's Music) buying some strings when I saw this hanging on the wall looking a bit unloved..
Being the kind chap that he is, Mike let me have a trial with the bass and after spending some time with it at home, I realised it was a must have..
As far as I can tell from the serial number, its a Made in Japan 1991/2 Fender Precision.
Sounds great, beautiful Ash body and maple neck and is in brilliant condition for a 27 year old bass.
Happy days, or should I say, happy NBDs!
Thanks for looking.. 😊
This is a wonderful example of what must be the ultimate of its type. Even has 'ripples' on the surface as a vintage plate often exhibits.
Had it fitted as you can see on CS Jazz.
Cost around £250 - 300 landed from the US.
Bass in the picture with plate fitted not included - view here to buy it.
2009 CS Jazz - lightweight resonant alder body with the tone pallette from Jaco to Marley's Aston Barrett. Plays beautifully as you'ld expect from Fender’s Finest.
Couple of dings as shown, some fine scratches which are are very hard to photograph
Weighs just less than 9libs on my kitchen scales, comes with certificate, unused case and case candy, Schaller strap locks.
Sale only please.
