Fender Mark Hoppus Precision P-Bass CLEAN! 2011 Re-Issue! Surf Green Jazz 8693
You're looking at a mint condition 2011 Fender Mark Hoppus P-Bass in Transparent Surf Green. No visible dings or scratches (one tiny indent on headstock--see pic--but his is 9.5/10 condition). Neck and frets in excellent condition. This is NOT the same as the other Hoppus basses currently on eBay. The Mark Hoppus bass was re-issued in 2006 with extensive changes, including:
-- Reverses the standard P-bass pickups to give more umph to the D and G strings.
-- The body was made lighter using ash instead of alder.
-- The maple neck is upgraded, using graphite support rods for stability.
-- The headstock decal is the very cool large Precision 70s logo.
-- And the finish is an awesome translucent look--compared to the flat original look.
These upgrades to the bass came after Hoppus toured with the original design and wanted to improve it. Bass looks new--almost like going back in time and getting one at the store (they're now out of production). Bass will come to the buyer set up and ready to play, along with fast & free shipping in the USA and 30-day return policy. No case. Thanks for looking!

Fender’s Mark Hoppus Jazz Bass--distinctive since its 2002 introduction as a Jazz Bass with a split single-coil Precision Bass® pickup--now has a new sonic formula. For the updated version of his signature model, Mark has reversed the pickup, with the upper half now on the treble side, delivering supercharged throat and fullness from the D and G strings; and the lower half now on the bass side, adding focused snap and brightness to the E and A strings. A unique modification for nonconformists.
Features include an ash body, maple neck with modern “C” shape and 1.625” nut width (wider than the 1.5” standard for Jazz basses), rosewood fretboard with 9.5” radius and medium jumbo frets, reversed Seymour Duncan Basslines SPB-3 Quarter Pound split-coil Precision Bass pickup, single chrome volume control knob, combination string-through-body bridge with a Mark Hoppus plate and Standard Series saddles and screws, and a one-piece Jazz Bass pickguard.
