FENDER 2001 STEVE HARRIS PRECISION P-BASS Rare 1st Gen Red Pickguard MIJ 52709


Regular price $1,899
Nice rare early Steve Harris P-bass!

Description
This is a killer 2001 rare Fender Steve Harris Precision Bass in Lake Placid Blue finish with Wine Red pickguard (see all pics below). This is the very first generation Harris P-bass made in Japan in 2001-02. (The 2nd gen had a mirror pickguard and sparkle finish made 2009-14.) This has a BadAss II bridge and a Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound SPB-3 pickup. It sports the Iron Maiden Eddie logo and Steve's signature on the front of headstock. Neck on these is not baseball bat thick like on the 2nd gen, and its basswood body means weight is reasonable (9 pounds, 3 ounces), unlike the alder body on 2nd gen. Produced for only 7 months in limited numbers, this model is sure to soar in value as the years go by. The really cool neck plate featuring Eddie was added by previous owner as was the Westham decal. Currently strung with round wounds. Some edge wear (see pics), otherwise pretty clean. Frets in good shape. 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.
