this is a Tobacco Sunburst 1982 American Fender Precision Bass Serial E323180 in fantastic condition but with Alembic Pickups. Sounds AMAZING! I see a few selling on ebay for well over a thousands of dollars...Looking for around $1000 or equivalent...will trade for Vox AC30, other amps, American Tele, etc.

Make me an offer...!

The listing was "flagged for removal". I'm not sure what that means in craigslist lingo. Maybe the bass was sold and the seller canceled the ad.

Or it was a scam. One or the other.

That Craigslist "Flagged" means someone other than the seller removed the ad.
Anyway, he had the price jacked up like the bass was a vintage collectible, but the mods on this bass were too extensive.
The picture of the back showed a large cover screwed on.
