This bass started as a lightweight ash body. I have too many basses already and this was meant to be my winter project bass, one that I would be proud to own and play, but also meant to pass on to another lucky person. All parts were removed from my brand new Fender Player bass and installed on the ash body. Once I completed my part of the build I took it to a professional luthier for completion and final setup.

This turned out even better than I anticipated, but I always have another project in the works, and can't keep every bass that I complete. It has a pretty low action which plays extremely well. I will include an older Fender Bass gig bag. It's nothing fancy, but is completely functional and will offer protection in shipping.

This P Style Bass provides authentic Fender Tone with a Modern Edge.

It provides the quintessential P Bass experience — with the playability you'd expect from a modern instrument. Lay down the groove with classic fat tones, by way of an Alnico V split-coil pickup. Experience a great fast feel, thanks to a Modern "C" neck profile and contemporary 9.5" fingerboard radius. You also get a synthetic bone nut, 4-saddle standard bridge, and Fender standard open-gear tuners.
This smooth-playing instrument looks to the future with new Alnico V pickups that crank out legendary Fender tone by the boatload. The sound this pickup puts out ranges from fat low end to punchy midrange to toothy treble — a beautiful sonic combination that is the foundation of the P Bass's tone. Jazz, funk, rock — this bass can cover it all with the kind of tonal styling that leaves you and your audience satisfied.

I'm particularly impressed by this nicely balanced maple neck with a modern "C" shape and a fast-playing 9.5"-radius maple fingerboard.
