A stunning example of Leo Fender’s G&L P bass.
It’s a proper U.S. model built in 2016 at the Fullerton, California plant. Hang tag, warranty card, certificate, spec sheet etc is included.
Finish is cherry burst.
The three ply guard is more like the lovely old vintage looking tort.
Saddle lock bridge.
9.5 radius dark Rosewood fret board. Bone nut. Width at the nut is 1.5/8th”.
Frets are medium/jumbo and all seated and finished perfectly.
G&L Alnico pick up
G&L ultralite tuners.
Weight is 9lb 12oz.
Original hard-shell, black tolex case, which looks almost as new.
This bass has not had a hard life, the first owner only used it at home, I’ve gigged it twice.
Although I believe it left the factory, with round wound strings, the previous owner fitted a set of flats, so there is no fret wear.
Condition is near perfect, with just a little swirling/signs of use to the pick guard.
Lovely tight, neck pocket and with six securing screws, the neck/body joint is rock solid.
I love this bass, it’s comfortable to play seated or standing, looks amazing and sounds great in a band setting.
My reason for selling? Well a near miss last night, on a crowded stage, when our drummer knocked over a heavy cymbal stand, made me rethink gigging with a pristine instrument like this. I’m going to use my old G&L and a P bass that I built for myself, both of which sport war wounds and genuine road wear.
Hopefully the photos will give a good indication of the condition. Anything that looks like a blemish or damage to the body finish, is purely down to my photography.
Price is £950.
I’m in Hoddesdon, Herts. Would really prefer collection but we can discuss shipping if necessary.

Glenn Hughes on Nash basses: "The one I’m playing now is a Bill Nash replica. My friend Bill Nash from Washington state, he’s amazing. I own a lot of old Fenders, which I don’t take on the road, and I wanted something that could replicate the old ones. I had tried many different replica-type basses, all distressed and road-worn variations. Bill had sent Joe Bonamassa a really messed-up looking Tele, the same Tele that was designed after Eric Clapton’s Hyde Park Blind Faith Tele -- the one with a Strat neck. I played this amazing Tele, which Joe played on the first Black Country Communion album on a song called “Beggarman.” I said, “Oh my god, I wonder if a Bill Nash bass would sound and look this good." Bill sent me a bass -- the red one you see me playing in the videos and the new Black Country Communion DVD. It’s a ’57 replica, a relic. It’s just insane. I’ve got some old P basses and Jazz basses, and you can’t really tell the difference."
