OK to help things along I'll throw in for free a nice immaculate Mono M80 gig bag with this bass.
Now that has got to be a bargain 😀
Only six months old,immaculate condition,fitted with new GHS pressurewound strings,very nice setup,plays beautifully.
It has had the wiring loom upgraded with top quality components including a switch craft jack socket(KiOgon loom) so sounds ace.
Comes with its Fender deluxe gig bag.
Price is firm so no lower offers please.
Collect from Harrogate.
No trades please.
This is a collectors' article, besides being the best P Bass I have ever owned, without a doubt. This bass is part of the history of an incredible musician, which played with names such as Steve Vai, Neil Zaza, Cyndi Lauper, Little Steven, Tina Turner, Dan Hartman and Billy Joel and even legendary Miles Davis.
I bought this bass from a New Jersey resident who bought it from the person who did TM's Estate sale. He visited TM's house and shipped this beauty to me in Brazil, where I used to live. Now, after moving to the UK, I am playing less and less, and it makes sense to sell this to a collector/actual player, which will take care of this legacy moving forward.
Originality-wise, electronics of this bass are entirely original except for one of the pots. The pickguard is broken next to the cable jack, typical for old P basses. The body was obviously stripped and covered with glossy finishing – probably it is not nitro, I'd say it is PU. One thing that dates the stripping is that there's a picture of TM with this bass dating back to early 70s from what it seems... so it's been like that for a while. And a funny fact, when I got the bass, the neckplate was flipped. I left it as TM knows what works better.
Everything else is clearly original, and I can back up originality after collecting old Fender basses for a few years.
Included on the sale:
- Covers (both pickup and bridge);
I will try to ship some of the memorabilia that was included in the original sale to whoever buys it. I left all of it in Brazil when I moved in as I had no intentions to sell it... if you're interested, leave me a message and I will send you more pictures.
Selling my Fender Stu Hamm Urge 1 Standard Bass. Picked this up last year but haven’t used it much. It’s in excellent condition. These were in production from 1993-1999. Its 32” medium scale and has a downsized body so it’s really easy to play and it’s very lightweight. 2 Jazz pickups and the controls are stacked volume/pickup pan and stacked treble and bass.
Comes with a heavy duty flight case or can ship in a smaller box with the neck removed if required.
• Poplar Body
• Maple Neck
• Rosewood fingerboard
• 24 frets
• 32” scale
• ‘Licensed by Schaller’ tuners
I’m not looking for any trades.
