Description
This is a 2006-2008 Fender '51 re-issue Precision Bass in butterscotch blonde, crafted in Japan. This bass is in great playing and cosmetic shape. Vintage thin frets are in very good condition with only mild wear. Plays and sound like it should. Cosmetically has one edge ding (see pics). Previous owner took some steel wool to back of neck to reduce gloss so your hand slides easier. They also lightly scuffed the finish on body I assume to reduce shine. I have buffed it out and it's impossible to see the scuffs unless you look sideways at it in bright light (the camera absolutely cannot catch them). It's a beautiful bass. It's ready to be played and enjoyed. Weight is 9 pounds, 6 ounces. No case. Currently strung with flat wounds. 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 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.
