This is a case where the result is greater than the sum of the parts. It is a very nice Fender P bass in sexy Fiesta Red. It is a project instrument built for our client by a respected Sydney guitar technician, using only high quality parts to achieve an excellent end result.
Here’s the story –
Neck was bought new from Musikraft USA. Super high quality unit from a fully authorised Fender maker in New Jersey. Fifties “D” shape with great, almost “old” broken-in feel. This alone cost over $600. https://www.musikraft.com
USA made Fender ’62 P Bass Reissue pickups
Fender USA tuners
Fender P Bass pickguard – Made in Japan
Body is from a Fender Mexican made Fifties Classic P Bass
Wiring and electrics from Obsidian Wire of New Zealand – https://obsidianwire.com/
It has put together with care and skill. The fit and finish is excellent, and easily compares with anything from Fender USA. The neck is a thing of beauty by itself – Musikraft has developed a worldwide reputation for some of the best necks available today. And this one feels like its been around a while, even though it hasn’t. The Fender logo & sticker are authorised by Fender USA.
The USA pickups are what you would expect, full & ballsy, with tone to spare.
This one was made to be a player, for a player who actually plays – in bands !
So it plays mighty well – balanced & comfortable with a real vintage feel. Put it up against pretty much anything twice the price & determine for yourself where the value is.
It is in excellent, almost new condition. It has been played enough to lose that “brand new” feel, but still looks as though it is.
Comes in a quality gig back in excellent condition.
