Purchased the bass a few years ago with the intention of levelling up my playing from beginner and splashed out on an awesome bass. Since then it's been used very few times at home, you can see from the fretboard there's virtually no sign of wear. It's been very well looked after and kept in a hard case. There's only one small surface mark which I've adding in the images -I'm assuming the mark could be polished off. The strings have been replaced approximately 4 months, removing the originals. Essentially it feels and plays like a new bass.
Saw the above on the Bay newly listed for this ridiculously cheap price this afternoon. I ummed and ahhed for a few mins but when I moved to the payment page it suddenly vanished. You snooze- you lose I guess.
Did some lucky individual just pick up a Status for under 500? Did someone just buy a stolen treasure? Or did the seller mis-type the price before realising and quickly withdrawing?
I didn't need another bass but what a tremendous bargain!
This model is finished in Olympic White and has a cool contrasting Black pickguard. I purchased it new last year and have only had chance to gig it a few times before lockdown. Consequently it is in first class, near new condition with no scratches or dings. Comes complete with its original Fender gig bag.
Fender says:A slim and playable maple neck has a C-profile and a Pau Ferro fingerboard with a contemporary 12” radius which allows the player creative freedom and maximum expression as they construct their basslines.
Two Vintage voiced Noiseless single coil pickups deliver a preferred tone with no background hum. Active electronics give you a powerful onboard 3 band EQ for shaping your sound as you play. The active circuit can be turned off completely via a mini toggle switch: this gives you even more sounds at your fingertips!
This is a great chance to get a bass in near new condition for significantly less than the new price. (New cost at Guitarguitar £899).
