Regular price $499
Description (Read Carefully)
This is a 1997 USA Fender Precision Bass Special loaded body for sale. All original parts. USA Precision and Jazz pickups. Candy Apple Red finish in very good shape with mild wear. This was from Fender's California Series only produced for two years. You can research it online. Assembled in USA with USA parts and the bodies were painted in Mexico. Very unique series. All the guitars and basses I have owned from the California Series have been very high quality. See neck pocket dimensions below to make sure your neck will fit. I have included pics below of the front and back of headstock from the bass (not included) so prospective buyers can see the "Made in USA" and the serial number. The body is ready for your project. All electronics work great. This auction is for the body only. Please contact with any questions before buying. Thanks for looking.

Neck Pocket Dimensions
Width: 2 1/2"
Length: 3 7/8"
Depth: 5/8" (necks protrude above the body, so they are thicker than this)
Heel shape: Rounded
Note: According to the Warmoth website, these dimensions are the standard Fender bass neck pocket dimensions, so this bass body should work with most Fender necks. If you believe your neck might be non-standard or need other measurements, contact me BEFORE buying. Thanks.

Wikipedia Info
Fender California Series electric guitars were produced by Fender in 1997 and 1998. The guitars were carved in California, shipped to Mexico for painting, then assembled in California. The serial numbers are in an AMXN + 6 digits format while the first digit represents the year of production. AMXN7***** means the guitar was manufactured in 1997. All Fender California Series have "Made in USA" on the headstock.

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.
