For Sale is my lovely 1969 P-bass with original pick up covers. Weighs 8.3lbs according to the kitchen scales.
Nicely 'roadworn' sunburst body with rosewood neck. The neck is B width, which is perfect for me. The tort scratchguard is slightly warped as seen in the pictures.
The pickups are not original but have certainly been there for a long time. It is currently strung with flats and sounds as it should (to me). As far as I know, everything else is original (I will remove the straplocks and replace the original strapbuttons).
There is an issue with the neck in that there was a bend which killed the A string octave d note (17th fret) when I bought it, the bass was taken to Andy Crockett in Canterbury who set it up and now it plays nicely. Please note there is still a slight bend in the neck of which I have tried to capture as best as possible. I will add some sound files shortly to let you hear the bass and include the d note.
I can do some internal pics if need be or a serious buyer could come down for a cuppa, a play and take a look internally with me. Although the neck now plays fine, it does still have a slight bend. With this in mind and the non original pickup, I will price to sell at £2500 (Happy to take advice via PM), but cant go any lower. I can meet within a reasonable distance, prefer not to post and am keen for the buyer to try and inspect first.
Reason for sale: unfortunately I am separating from my wife, I now need some quick money to support moving costs.
