About This Listing

Very rare, and very cool 1986 Fender Performer bass. These don't come around for sale very often. It's a unique MIJ bass guitar that Fender made for about 2 years and then was discontinued. There are only an estimated 200 - 250 of these made at the Fender Fuji-Gen plant, and it not only looks really killer, she sounds great and is a super nice player as well. Nicely balanced axe, and weighs in at 7.9lbs on our scale. This also features Fender's slimmest neck, even more slim than the Jazz Bass, it's maple with rosewood FB and has a 1 1/2" nut width. Fast playing bass, with very comfortable contours whether you play standing or sitting. Great for fast attack and slap n pop style playing. This is a full scale 34" with 24 frets and has the Fender Micro-Tilt adjustable neck.  The Performer's playability and punchiness is every bit as notable as its rarity and cutting edge looks. Even the Fender logo on the headstock has an unorthodox design not seen on other models. The tone ranges from smooth to aggressive, with great clarity and punch. The TBX control provides a huge boost beyond the tonal range of most passive basses. There are no major damage or repairs done to this, and has minor little bumps and bruises which can be seen in the photos. Appears to be all original, with OHSC included.  Cost of shipping includes full insurance, for peace of mind to you the purchaser. Hope you have a great day!
