Almost sold twice at 800, but it's still here. A truly wonderful looker and player. Just feeling bad about having more basses than an honest man needs. No trades sorry.

A minter.
Bought new in early '98 (GAK, Brighton), sold to me (second owner) about 3 years ago. Never messed with, modded or banged around.
I've owned a good few Ps over the years and I really rate the 90s basses for build, sound and value (a 23 year old USA bass with no 'vintage' premium).
The previous owner played this bass in pub bands for many years so it's nicely played in but still really good, no noticeable fret wear etc.

Was originally black poly, and I had David Wilson refinish it in LPB nitro a few months ago. He was recommended to me by a number of forum members and his work is really impeccable - so this is like a new one, just needs the years to pass by as the nitro mellows.

Has been my main gigging bass (through a GB 900 and GB 8812 cab) with EB Cobalts. I'm using the Jazz these days and will be acquiring a 60s Original soon so this fine example is up for sale.

Original Fender 'chainsaw' case in excellent condition, original truss tool.

I have pics from David of the refinish stages - the black body had a heavy coat of poly on with a 3TSB underneath (all definitely factory original, so a Corona colour-swap to sort their production mix) - the new nitro has a deep rich clear laquer but is still surely much thinner than the original 2 coats of poly and I'm sure the bass is more lively and vibrant now.

Best thing is come and play it. Or I can drive a reasonable way carefully (9 points and rising). Will pack really well for shipping - own courier.

SALE ONLY now, sorry no trades.

Been after a 90’s P bass for a while and own a ‘94 2eq Ray gathering dust....it has emotional attachment though.  Decisions...

I had a 95 P bass for about 10 years as my main bass. Solid, punchy, loud. Great basses.

Didnt look anywhere near as cool as this one tho!

Replied Andy. I may regret the loss of this one, but a bit of stock control is required, and I'm making way for this (which is quite blowing the socks off so far) - a '98 USA P Special now with new Cobalts on.

Totally agree @hooky_lowdown - but the original shown is actually more discoloured than the pics suggest. Some folks put tort on lpb - don't get it myself, and anyways the factory original lpb would be white plate.
