SOLD : MIJ Fender P Bass circa 1991/2 SOLD
£750
Littlehampton West Sussex

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks, 

This is a bit of a feeler really as I have my eye on something else.. 

So, this is - as far as I can tell from the serial number - a Made in Japan Fender Precision bass, circa 1991/2.

I'm looking for £SOLD or very near offer for this beauty. 

It sounds and looks great, has a beautiful Ash body and a slim, almost Jazz like maple neck and is in brilliant condition for a 27 year old bass.

It's everything a 70s P Bass should be IMHO ! 😊

Full disclosure ; there's one tiny ding on the neck which I'll try to photograph tomorrow when there's hopefully some decent light..

It has been set up professionally and is currently strung with a set of Rotosound steels.  Comes with a functional hard case. 

As ever, I'd prefer to sell this to someone who could come and try it out in person here in Littlehampton West Sussex first however, I am prepared to ship it at buyer's expense by insured courier service. 

If you've any questions, please PM me or ask away here and I'll try to get back to you ASAP.

I am away in Birmingham from tomorrow afternoon for 3 days , so please bear in mind that I may not be able to answer certain questions.. 

Thanks for looking as ever! 😊

Nik

Not really ; I'm almost embarrassed to say that I had to look him up just now to be absolutely sure who he is.. 😳

Gorgeous Nik (no, not you, you plank).

That's a 70's reissue, most likely a P70US N the US meaning American pups. It will have model type in the neck pocket. Nut width will be 40 mm, same as a Nate Mendel.

If my Highway One/Road Worn Jazz yada yada yada.......................

GLWTS

Edit.

Most likely a non export, as most that left Japan had rosewood boards, so definitely less common than the already uncommon export ones.

Had a couple of requests about the weight of the bass, so I've weighed it on our really old bathrooms scales.

The reading says it's a shade under 4kg which doesn't surprise me given that it's an Ash body.

      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:
      - Bass;
      - OHSC;
      - 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.

      Here's a new lockdown svid track, "Sink".
      Pounding Precision (a parts build by me,  played by John) and resonating Rickenbackers (played by me) abound...
      Social distancing and minumum use of loo paper rules were carefully observed.
      Hope you're being creative too...

      Price drop to £850
      An absolutely stunning example with matching headstock Maruszczyk Jake 5+ P/MM that is around 7lbs / 3.2Kg in weight,
      Fitted with passive Delano MC5 HE/M2 and PC5 HE/M2 pickups and comes with a Hiscox hard case.
      New D'Addario nickel rounds fitted but I can include some used DR Sunbeams if you'd prefer.
      18mm string spacing at the bridge
      Bought from the Gallery a few months ago (I've used their photo's as they are better than mine) and had Adrian at Maruszcyk paint the headstock the same colour as the body.
      No trades
      Couriers are still delivering at the moment, so posting isn’t an issue.
      If you've ever wanted a lightweight 5 stringer that weighs so little that a 2 or 3 hour set leaves little to no impression on your ageing shoulders, then this is the bass to have
