Hi guys,

Since I am in need to upgrade my whole rig due to a new touring gig, I am selling this high quality bitsa pbass.

The neck, nut and tuning pegs are off a Fender AVRI58. This is my favourite pbass neck I've ever tried, described as a Large C. It's quite big yet very comfortable.

The body was made for me by an Italian luthier called Rufini Guitars - https://www.rufinifineinstruments.com/ - It's a very good quality body made by 3 pieces of Canadian alder.
It was then painted in a nice aged olympic white/eggshell colour with a thin layer of nitro and a medium relic job. I love the relic on this bass as it looks genuine and it makes the instrument feel broken in. 

The pickup is a custom wound pickup made for me by a company called MAMA pickups - https://www.mamapickups.com/en/ - The pickup is meant to reproduce a 60's pbass pup. It's warm, clear and fairly high output.

The bridge, strap buttons and neck plate are from a Fender pbass 1978 that I've owned for a few years. I paired the neck from that bass with the body that belonged to the Fender AVRI58 previously mentioned.

The scratchplate is an aftermarket pbass scratchplate. It has a thumb rest in 70's position but also drilled holes if you would like it in a 60's position.

Bass has rounds on it right now (can't remember which ones) but I am happy to put some Fender flats that I have lying around.

I have used this mostly for studio stuff. A couple of years back I have recorded a live album with a blues artist while in Florida and here's a video where you can hear the sound (at the time I had a rosewood neck on it but you can get an idea)

Once again you sell a nice bass. And in the video the P-Bass sounds very good with the rolled off tone poti. Once again I'm quite interested. What about the input-jack? Looks like a modern one with security-lock.

Kind regards

Nice bass, but a '78 bridge should have bridge saddles with flathead screws instead of allen screws?

Hi Lars,

I used to have the bass wired in Volume/Tone and a switch hence why the jack input is at the bottom and not in the usual place. I went for one of those modern ones because they are a bit safer since you have to press a little button to release the jack.

Don't need another bass, but if it makes me look that cool and play that well.... Lovely video.

Hi there, that's just lovely are you prepared to ship? I'm based in Darlington Durham.

Happy for the neck to come off to make things easier and would obviously meet all the costs involved for your time and trouble.

Very best wishes

Jeff

Hi Jeff,

Happy to post! I have a fender gigbag tweed that is functional and I could ship the bass in that if that works for you :)

Brilliant! Its sold!

Will get back to you early this afternoon to discuss payment and shipping, was just thinking a gigbag may not be sturdy enough to handle transit, unless you know of a reliable method.

Thanks again 

Jeff
