This is a 2003 Fender Mike Dirnt signature Precision Bass in black ebony finish. Fender no longer makes these with the BadAss bridge, instead substituting their own Fender bridge now. Slab ash body with arm contour. BadAss II bridge and '51 P-bass styling make for a great looking and playing instrument. Just given a full setup and cleaning. Ready to play. Plenty of cool looking wear from playing--well on its way to that road worn look people are paying so much for now. No case. Weight is 9 pounds, 5 ounces. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks.

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.
