Fender 1989-90 Precision Boner Longhorn P-Bass Plus TBX Lace Sensor 11056


Regular price $1,799
Description
This is a 1989-90 Fender Precision Bass Plus in Midnight Blue finish, made in USA with an E9 + 5-digit serial. These were made for only 4 years and sport a slightly different body shape with deeper cutaways. (These have also been nicknamed the “boner bass" or "longhorn" due to the lengthened horns.) Solid one piece alder or ash body and one piece maple neck. Great features with the P/J Lace Sensor pickups and a Series/Parallel button. The TBX tone circuit makes for a really usable Tone control.

Great tuning setup with the Schaller tuners and Schaller Elite fine tuning bridge. Makes you wonder why they didn’t use this bridge on more instruments. The bass is in great playing condition with very clean frets. Cosmetically, the finish is coming off in spots on the back and edges. To me it just gives it more character. Looks like a nice relic bass. You literally won’t find anything like this elsewhere in the Fender line, and they are hard to come by. Weight is 10 pounds, 1 ounces. No case. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking!

Guitar Setup
All our setups are done by our in-house trained luthier. Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!

Packing
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.

Additional Info
The Precision Bass Plus is an electric bass made by Fender Musical Instruments Corporation and designed by George Blanda in 1989. It was one of the first American-made Fender basses to feature a 22-fret neck, requiring the company to slightly oversize the body shape and lengthen the cutaways, which distinctly changed the overall look of the instrument. Other features included a solid alder or ash body, a 1-piece maple neck with rosewood or maple fingerboard, adjustable Lace Sensor Precision and Jazz pickups, Schaller deluxe die-cast tuning machines, 3-ply black, parchment or 4-ply brown tortoise shell pickguard, Schaller Elite fine-tuning bridge, 3-way toggle pickup switch, master volume, series/parallel push-push button for the neck pickup and master TBX tone. It was discontinued in 1993. These Blanda PLUS designs are sometimes called BONER BASSES because of the longer horns required to get good balance due to the 22 fret necks.
