Fender 51 Precision Bass LOADED BODY ONLY! Butterscotch P-bass Crafted in Japan CIJ 44547


Regular price $1,299
Description
This listing is for the loaded body only...Let me say that once more--THIS IS FOR THE LOADED BODY ONLY of a 2002-2004 Fender '51 re-issue Precision Bass in butterscotch blonde, crafted in Japan. I do have the neck but I found that I cannot get the bow out of the neck so I'm parting it out (more on the neck below). The body itself has no issues. All electronics work fine, etc. Some small marks I've shown in pictures. The body will come with all electronics just as you see it, ready for you to attach a neck and start playing. I will also include the neck plate and screws if you need them. Again, this listing is for a loaded body for $699 plus shipping. Thanks.


About the neck: A tried taking the bow out of the neck. I used a shim for the truss rod, then I clamped the neck to produce backbow and was able to turn the truss rod pretty far and get some of the relief out, but it still has more than I like, so I don't feel comfortable selling the bass with the neck, if I can't get a setup I like. If you want the neck, I will be selling it separately for $125. It is not included with this current listing! thanks.

Guitar Setup
All setups are done by our in-house 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.

Manufacturer Info
This reissue of the Fender '51 Precision Electric Bass Guitar nails all the important details of the original--including the sound. A vintage single-coil pickup halfway between the bridge and neck, 2-saddle bridge, gorgeous ash body, and one-piece maple neck and fretboard make up the killer combination that carried the low end of half the top acts of the '50s, '60s, and '70s. Amoeba pickguard, vintage chrome knobs and knob plate, stunning butterscotch blonde see-through finish, and classic narrow headstock make it look as cool as it plays.
