FENDER TELECASTER P-BASS Modern Player Custom Natural Finish Tele 02858
Fender Telecaster bass--for less than 2 grand...imagine that!
You're looking at a 2012 Fender Modern Player Telecaster Bass in Natural finish. It is a one-of-a-kind Tele bass that was stripped to bare wood by its previous owner. Shows all the beautiful wood grain usually hidden by a thick finish. You can see carving marks around some edges where the finish was removed, but overall has a very nice look. Frets and neck are in great shape. The two humbuckers in this sound, deep, booming and massive. Action is nice and it plays gret up and down the neck. The one thing to note is previous owner did a so-so job on the nut and it is not glued in. So when you change strings the nut can pop out. Also the nut slot is not perfectly cut. Down the road, owner will want new nut and the slot perfected.
Nice chance to get a Tele bass and not have to spend a couple grand. These are discontinued--and not a lot floating around. People are holding onto them. So grab this one while you can. Brass barrel saddles on a high-mass bridge, all maple neck, Tele headstock, tummy cut, Fender engraved neck plate--lots of nice details. Weight is 9 pounds, 14 ounces. Had colored strings when pics were taken. I've since replaced with standard round wound, but I will include the colored strings as well. No case. 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.
