Old meets new in this bass, based on Green Day bassist Mike Dirnt's favorite '51 P-bass. These come loaded with a high-mass Badass II bridge and Tele Bass-style headstock. 

Description
This is a 2005 Fender Mike Dirnt signature Precision Bass in Vintage White finish. Comes with a black hard case. This one comes stock with a BadAss bridge. (More recently Fender started substituting their own bridge on these.) Slab ash body with arm contour. '51 P-bass styling with Tele Bass headstock make for a great looking and playing instrument. Just given a full setup and cleaning. Ready to play. Currently strung with round wounds. Cosmetically super clean, 9.75/10 condition. Only thing to find is a small hairline crack at neck pocket (pics below). Frets in great shape. Weight is 9 pounds, 1 ounce. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks.

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.
