FENDER Classic Series 50s Lacquer Precision Bass Black/Gold NITRO! Upgrade 11934
You're looking at a 2018 Fender Classic Series 50s Precision Bass Lacquer, made in Mexico. This is the special edition made with nitrocellulose lacquer finish on both neck and body. Recently these were re-branded "Vintera" and are only available in poly finish now. Previous owner went all gold, including, Hipshot HB7 27:1 tuners ($150), gold knobs, jack, neck plate, string tree, strap pins, and bridge cover--plus a real wood finger rest below the strings.
These basses have the vintage vibe with their chunky C-shaped 7.25" radius maple neck, vintage frets, and gold anodized pickguard. Plays great. No issues. Frets are in great condition. Cosmetically, looks nice overall: couple small marks on headstock, couple scratches on back, and general scuffing from playing, which is very hard to see (see pics). These are some of the highest quality Mexican basses ever made and rival the workmanship on many USA Fenders. Weight is 8 pounds, 15 ounces. No case. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing—as well as full specs.) Thanks for looking.

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!
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.
