Fender Precision Nate Mendel Signiture ( Original Badass Model) Hard Case Included *PRICE DROP*
£770
Newmarket

Recommended Posts

PRICE DROP £750

 

Up for sale is my Nate Mendel P Bass Candy Apple Red nitro lacquer finish 

It's a light roadworn finish but I believe its acquired a few more marks in its life ! Plus there is a bit of rash on the back too but it's only cosmetic, this thing still sounds and plays great, I got it second hand from PMT and the strings are still relatively fresh and the setup is great.

I believe they have switched now to a fender hi mass but this is one of the originals with a badass 2 bridge.

Included in sale is a hard case. 

I'm willing to ship at buyers expense or deliver/meet half way kind of thing within reason.

Very reluctant sale to be honest but I got caught up in the heat of the moment in a music store a few months ago and now the reality is dawning on me that I never use a four string and it's just going to live its life in the case and im looking to fund upgrades on another bass ! 

Open to offers.

Please message any questions or requests to try it out !

PM’d. 
 

Anyone got any idea how much shipping to Central Scotland would be?

Hoping this sticks around a couple of days, by which time I’ll have the necessary funds...

Did anyone on here buy this? I sent Feech a message, but he hasn't replied. Just wondering if it's still for sale?

Feech did PM me back a few weeks ago, saying he'd changed his mind and was keeping it. But in the current economic climate, I suppose everything has it's price?

Seriously nice bass - especially with the original Badass bridge. No idea what difference the later Fender Hi-Mass bridge makes to the sound, but this is the original edition I would fork out for. 

Pity I've got nothing to fork at the moment, even if this is still for sale. 

This forum is torture!

      1982 Fender Precision Special, ash body, rosewood neck. The color would have been Arctic White according to the catalog, but as you can see this bass has seen it all – I got it from the first owner - a session musician, who did play on it every day for almost 40 years and it shows. I do not know where to start with the roadworn part, but as can be seen – finish is worn almost everywhere, lacquer on the neck is gone in many places, there are numerous bumps, dings, dongs, etc. (luckily surface, no structural damage), pickguard is cracked near the jack, finger rest has been relocated, fingerboard and frets are also worn from playing, etc. etc. – all this is shown in the photos.
      Now the good part – the bass sounds tremendous, I was skeptical towards the Precision Special model and went to check it out only because it look extremely road worn (which in my book is always good), and walked away with it. The action is nice (truss rod has some more space) although the frets are a little worn (if you are picky there is room to have them polished/crowned), the neck has a very comfy beefy C shape profile. Best part is the sound – I admit that always use it in passive mode and it sounds huge – responsive, lots of everything - lows, mids and highs – a very full sounding bass, a bit like a 70s, but not so clanky. Active mode is also nice if you are into this. It is all original apart form 2 screws as far as I am aware, all relicing is natural, weight is 5,05kg, nut width is 42mm., all hardware and electronics work as they are supposed to.

      I am letting go a part of my collection and keeping only the more vintage precisions. The asking price is what it costed me, but sensible offers can be considered. No trades, I am afraid, unless it is a well played pre-1974 precision or recent B-15. Also, if you purchase it and do not find yourself to like it – I can take it back as long as you cover the shipping and payment fees.
      It comes with the original case it was purchased with – Fender “Duck foot” Tweed case (sold more with Fullerton reissues) which is in crooked condition, but if you do not want it – I can knock down 70 pounds off the price.  
      Any questions – please, feel free to ask. Price includes shipping to most parts of EU.

      PRICE DROP - NOW £2050
       1990 Fender Custom shop fretless Jazz Bass. As you can expect from a John Page era custom shop bass – a superb instrument and one of the earliest Fender fretless jazz basses that I have seen from Fender (after the extremely rare ones from the 70s).
      As one can expect the bass has been played a lot and shows a lot of dings and dongs, patina on the hardware, etc., but is all original and in perfect functional condition: straight neck with more place in the truss rod to adjust (it is not maxed out), all electronics and hardware work accordingly, action can be set very nice and low. The bass is superbly responsive, resonates extremely well with great dynamics and the harmonics are just amazing – it both sings and does the “mwah” just as well. I have not made any attempts to renew the hardware (remove the patina), because IMHO it gives it character, but if you wish my bass tech can do that prior to shipping. Width at nut is 38mm and the bass weights 4,07kg. according to my home scale. It comes with a black tolex case, probably not original.

      Why am I selling it if its such a great bass – I am letting go a part of my collection and keeping only the vintage precisions. The asking price is less than what it costed me, but can consider sensible offers. No trades, I am afraid, unless it is a well played pre-1974 precision or recent B-15. Also, if you purchase it and do not find yourself to like it – I can take it back as long as you cover the shipping and payment fees.

      Hi folks,
      EMG GZR Precision pickup for sale.  Lots of talk about these; they make a superb upgrade  - only selling as I am trimming down my collection.
      These seem to be £85 delivered new but with all the connectors and pots.  This is just the pickup, wire and screws so the price reflects this.
      Thanks
