I know there are several other bassists here, so I’m listing here before I go to Reverb. This deal is less than I’ll sell for there.

1997 Fender American Deluxe Precision bass
- 4 string model
- Transparent white finish
- Birdseye Maple neck with Rosewood fingerboard
- P and humbucker pickups with factory preamp and EQ
- Original hardshell case

Bass and case are in excellent condition, the bass has a two nicked areas on the back of the neck (pictured) and small nick at the end of the headstock. No nicks or dings in the body, just a minor surface scratch (may buff out but I didn’t want to do it). The bass could use a setup, but the neck is straight.

Are you sure you want to sell that beast? I love modified Fender P basses with bridge pickups! Having a humbucker in addition to the P pickup is AWESOME! It reminds me of Berry Oakley! That is really cool. It looks like you got that thing modified exactly the way you wanted it. I think you might regret selling this one! I never sell basses any more...I don't know what it is, but in the past, I always regretted selling it much more than selling a drum. My youngest daughter is one heck of a bassist, so she just gets all of my basses. I never sell them...neither should you! :)

Thanks Rob, but this is actually the factory configuration for these early (first run) American Deluxe models. It does sound great, honestly I’m not playing it because I don’t want to fall in love. It came to me in a trade recently and I’m happy with my Mexican Standard — which HAS been modified to fit me.

Wow! I haven't ever seen one with a humbucker. Where have I been? Anyway, I just love that thing. You should keep her and get rid of the other "girlfriend." ;-)
