FENDER ROAD WORN PRECISION TELE BASS Rare FSR 50s P Lake Placid / Gold 50896
This is a 2015 Fender Road Worn Precision Bass. It has a P-bass body with a Tele Bass neck, sort of like the Mike Dirnt model. With the gold anodized pickguard, ashtray bridge cover and finger rest, this thing oozes vintage vibe. The wear on both the body and neck are very consistent with Fender road worn's I've seen, so I believe the relic wear really was done at the factory.
However, I have never seen a Lake Placid Blue Road Worn P before, maybe there was a special run. I'm still waiting to hear back from Fender on this. The neck radius is 9.5" and it has medium frets, so it's not like a 50s P in that respect. But it does have reverse wind tuners. Anyway, it's an amazing playing bass and the only one you're gonna find like this. Frets are in A+ condition. Currently strung with flat wound strings. Weight is 8 pounds, 11 ounces. No case. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) I may end auction early if it sells elsewhere. Thanks for looking!
What You Get

-- FREE USA shipping.
-- 30-day return policy.
-- Ship within 1 business day--pro packing.
Due to international shipping conditions, we are only shipping with FedEx or DHL. You must contact us for an exact quote. Also be aware quotes do not include Customs fees and Customs in your country may be SLOW due to the world crisis.
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!
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.
