FENDER MODERN PLAYER TELECASTER BASS Sunburst Tele Sweet! 03338


Regular price $799

Fender Telecaster bass--for less than 2 grand...imagine that! 

Description
You're looking at a 2011 Fender Modern Player Telecaster Bass in Sunburst finish. Very nice playing condition. Neck and frets are in great condition. The two humbuckers in this sound, deep, booming and massive. Nice chance to get a Tele bass and not have to spend a couple grand. These are discontinued--people are holding onto them. So grab this one while you can. Brass barrel saddles on a high-mass bridge, all maple neck, killer Tele headstock, tummy cut, Fender engraved neck plate--lots of nice details. Yea, I know, but it's made in China...guess what, these are great basses--period! If you are after that vintage beef tone, you will be a happy camper. This does have some edge marks/dings (see pics below). One through the finish up by armrest area, but let's face it, your arm is usually there so probably won't be very visible. Weight is 9 pounds, 5 ounces. I do have a massive black hard case I could include for an extra $20 just to cover the extra weight for shipping (USA only). Optional. Let me know if you want it. 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
My setup on guitars 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. I spray out any pots that are noisy. I 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. I don't claim to be a trained luthier, but I'm able to set guitars/basses for a reasonable out-of-box experience and have had very few complaints. If you're looking for the perfect setup on a used guitar, please expect to take it to a trained luthier who is familiar with your individual playing style and preferences. ps: basses get the same setup minus the new strings. 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.
