SOLD For sale or trade:Fender American Deluxe Precision Bass 2010 EMG Hipshot £750

Recommended Posts

Price dropped to £750 and no lower!

Another bass that has sat in the cupboard for far too long unplayed. At a gig last night, I realised that the two basses I had with me were all I'd used in anger for ages and all I would ever need. (Until the dreaded GAS rears it's ugly head again)

Any road up, here is my 2010 Fender American Deluxe Precision Bass in Crimson transparent. I got fed up of the N3 pickups and fitted EMG PJ pickups and a BTS four knob control system. The Scratchplate has been replaced with a mint green one but I can chuck in the original black one (a bit battered) if you like. The bass is fitted with the appropriate Hipshot DTuner and is in overall excellent condition. the only damage is a small gouge on the end of the headstock, a few plectrum scratches on the body on the upper boutand a little scuffing below the controls on the lower edge.


The case  has most of the bits in it and is in very good condition.

It's a beauty but it never gets played and I'm fast running out of space under the stairs.

I am based in Leics but get around the country a lot with work so a meet could be possible.

Let the pictures tell you more!


Not really interested in trades. Try me if it's a guitar (not modern or even remotely pointy)

This is a LOT of bass for the price. I have one of these from 2010 also, and it’s just incredible. The easiest playing bass I’ve ever owned. £1400 new even back then, plus your upgrades. GLWTS.

Could I ask why you replaced the N3 pickups with the EMGs. Also, would posting be possible ? Thanks

I was fed up of getting buzz and hum from the bridge pick up. Everything was earthed and all cavities screened with copper foil and graphite paint. However some venues must have had a rogue beer cooler in the cellar or something because I couldn't get rid of interference. the neck pick up was quiet as a mouse, frustratingly! The EMG pickups are, as always, free from any nasties and sound (to my ears) the business. 

I could post, probably UPS as I've had no bother with them, not sure how much that would be but I can make enquiries.

Just remembered the other reason, the pan pot on the original Fender electronics was very crude. It was effectively a three way switch, the EMG allows neck with just a touch of bridge for example, the original was one or the other or both.

      Hi folks! 
      I've not had this amp long, and whilst it's bloody fantastic, it's not quite for me. It's in superb condition, and comes with a thickly padded vinyl Hotcovers cover (not originally for this combo, but fits pretty well). 
      Most people seem to know all about these anyway, but for those who don't, it's a seriously good sounding, loud combo, that belies its compact and lightweight form. 
      500w class D amplifier section (350w standalone without an 8 ohm ext. Cab), 2x10" custom designed eminence drivers and a switchable horn, eq pre-shapes, drive channel (footswitchable), 4 band eq section, and all the ins and outs you might need. 
      I have to say, I've been absolutely staggered by the quality of sound and volume that this thing produces! Incredible bottom end for a combo this size (beats the pants off the Markbass 2x10 combo I used to have), and ample volume for the vast majority of pub /club /function gigs. Our rock covers band is pretty damn loud, both guitarists have VERY loud valve amps, and I don't think I got the volume above halfway on the two gigs I used it on! Couple it up to another cab, and you've got a full 500w! 
      I'm in Hereford, which isn't known for its great transport links, but I'm happy to meet within a reasonable distance. I'd prefer not to ship as it'll be a PITA to package, but it's not entirely out of the question. Will be in London area on Saturday 21st for the bass show if that helps anyone. 
      Thanks for looking, and any questions, please get in touch. 😊👍

      Fender Japan Jazz Bass, a 62 reissue in Photo flame finish, I think its called.   Really lovely playing bass, low action, not heavy, with lovely dark rosewood fret board.  
      Weight 4.15 Kilos
      The bad part is that it is cosmetically challenged, as you will see from the photos.   Cracked lacquer, a long scratch down the back and some pings and pongs here and there.   The neck, though, is virtually unscathed apart from the edge of the headstock.  Action is super low but can be adjusted, the truss rod works and turns fine.
      The price is taking into account the condition, any less than that and I will probably just choose to have it refinished, because it is a great sounding bass, almost too growly for me in fact.
      Comes with a gig bag and would prefer collection or meet up in London. But, Have Box and can send.
      Not looking for trades, want to get a good lightweight bass cab (Not BF)

      Hiya, I'm new to this so please let me know if I'm breaking any rules. Relisted thanks to a time-waster..
      I've had this for ages, but I don't play 4's any more so it needs to go to someone who'll appreciate it more.
      For sale (no trades) is my 1988 Warwick thumb bass, 4 string.
      This is the holy grail of thumb basses, from Warwick's 'golden era'. It's all original and in excellent condition.
      Made in West Germany (see electronics cover), this bass has a solid bubinga body and the proper wenge and bubinga 7 piece neck. The neck shape is the skinny type, not the baseball bat of some modern warwick basses. It still has the original EMG jazz pickups and 2 band preamp - all work perfectly. Frets are original and in great shape (see pictures). Tuners are original Schaller.
      Condition is remarkable for a 31 year old bass. There are a couple of scratches as you might expect, bit of buckle rash but no big dents or anything. Please see the pictures showing the edges of the bass and the various hardware etc. The only notable scratch is below the tailpiece (pictured) and some string wear on the pickups (also pictured).
      Weight is 4.65kg / 10.25 lbs.
      The bass is currently packaged ready to be shipped via UPS courier across the UK, or collection is welcome from Chorley in Lancashire, or from Chadderton in Greater Manchester.
      Any questions, ask away.
      Thanks for looking, Phil.

      Selling my Fender 60s Jazz Bass (Olympic White, Rosewood Neck). It's a great sounding bass with an authentic road worn look and in overall great condition! My collection is getting out of hand.. therefore i'm selling.
      Classic Fender Jazz bass with timeless design elements. Off-set waist body, ultra-slim, fast-action neck and full-range Bi-Pole pickups. Many of the period-correct details that made the original Jazz basses so cool are spot-on replicated in this classic vintage-vibe beauty - especially the original offset waist, ultra-slim neck, and pair of vintage-style Alnico magnet Jazz Bass single-coil pickups.
      One small dink on the neck (see pics) which doesn't effect playability. I removed the pick guard (I like the look without), which you can have with the bass.
      Based in NW London, happy to ship UK wide for extra cash.
