Here for sale is my P Bass. It’s made from:
- Fender Classic Series Lacquer (Nitrocellulose) body in Black, unsure on the year.
- Fender Road Worn Jazz Neck, 2008/2009.
- Fender Tort scratchplate.
- Fender Custom Shop 62 pick ups.
- Fender Bridge with Graphtech saddles.
- Hipshot Ultra Light tuning pegs.
- Nate Mendel signature neck plate.
Currently strung with Ernie Ball Super Slinkys.
It cost me well over £1000.00 to assemble and plays really nicely. The reason for sale is quite simply that I need the money. As you’ll see by the pictures, the body is starting to age nicely, all natural wear, and should age into a great looking bass.
Priced at £600.00, plus carriage to wherever you may be.
Any questions just get in touch!
I am selling this P/J Jazz bass with EMG electronics.
I have over £800 in materials invested in this bass so I am selling it at a loss. I just want to move it on so that I can start on the next builds I have planned.
The the body and the neck are painted in nitrocellulose from a rattle can. The finish on the body is not 100% perfect and there are a few tiny rub throughs of the black. Perfect for a relic finish if you are into that kind of thing.
The body was bought new from pcguitars on ebay USA. It was an unfinished Alder P/J Jazz body that fits Fender necks P250
The neck is of unkown origin. The flame in the maple is lovely.
