2012 Fender American FSR Standard Hand Stained Ash Precision Bass.
£900
Northumberland.

Recommended Posts

So i'm deciding to sell a bass or two, I tend to use my EUB, Status and Jazz basses so this one is not getting the usage it deserves! 

I purchased this bass 6 years ago from this site. It has played 2 festivals and been recorded on 1 album in my hands so truth be known it's had minimal use. I'd like to think that is reflected in it's condition which barring a small ding that it came with is excellent.

The finish is stunning, plays a dream and it sounds superb. It comes with SKB Fender hard case.

I'm based in Northumberland, given the pandemic situation at the moment try outs are tricky. I could give a link to the album....no plug intended believe me! guess there is the option of Zoom to have a listen.

. Unfortunately I don't have any scales to weigh the bass, If I can find some I will do that.

Not looking for trades. I've never posted a bass before but i'm sure this could be arranged at buyers expense and risk but only within the UK.

UPDATE. Royal Mail can do around about
£30-00 special delivery guaranteed next day fully insured. Signed for.

I'll leave a little bit of spec. Thanks for looking and do take care. Cheers. Simon.

It's a rosewood fretboard not maple as stated. Been a long week!

That's right, Kirkby Lonsdale! nice day out apart from waterpump hose went on the way back. Rang green flag and I got towed to Carlisle. The bloke who came out was a legend, did a fix on it so I could drive it back. 

It is a lovely bass mind.

I know the feeling, there is one bass I regretted selling in the past.

Wasn't sure till I compared the grain pattern - and that difference in stain colour just on the bass side of the bridge. I bought it from somebody else on here. If I had £900 burning a hole in my pocket I'd buy it in a heartbeat! Looks like you looked after it well, glad it's had some decent usage.

The maple board looks a bit rosewood'ish

Thank the Lord or I would have to have bought it.

I have an FSR US Fender and it’s just brilliant. If I didn’t have to spend thousands on a new roof for my daughters bedroom I’d buy this.

I’m very surprised this is still available actually - it’s a great price honestly - they’re ultra rare - when they came out I bought the Jazz Bass equivalent - a fabulous instrument.

You're right mind. I picked it up earlier and had a noodle around.

I think I might be falling in love again!
