9.2 out of 10 condition for this 30 yr old made in the legendary Fullerton factory USA bass. A small section of light buckle rash (1" x2" only seen at a certain angle, nothing through the finish). Some match head dings and fine scratches. Minor fret wear. The neck and pot dates ave 1984 date codes (see pics). Volume knob cuts out below 8 works fine "full open". Hardshell case is pretty beat, however all latches work fine.
Great sounding P bass.
Fender was sold by CBS to a group of investors, Bill Schultz among them in 1985. The Fullerton factory was closed, as it was not included in the deal and Fender relocated to Corona, California. Manufacturing continued in 1986 at Corona but no longer using the old tooling machines from Fullerton.
The new basses were now made using CNC machines (computer controlled), still excellent basses but not quite the same as the Fullerton models made with the original tooling. Fullerton models have slightly slimmer body profiles, deeper contours and that famous router hump by the neck heel.
