Thanks for all the lovin' bumps.
No idea when the pup ring was added. I bought this bass in 2002. I've got her up for sale because I have 2 '79-'81 Hondo's with p-pups. Other bass is a doublecut with less value which I've transitioned to my main player and I'd really like to try another pup style.
So... the Longhorn is up for sale. I'll miss her when (and if) she goes.
Yes, these are smooth players with great sound and tons of mojo.
