had it for a couple weeks now, just got around to taking some pics the other day.
serial # dates to 97 or 98.
the guy I got it from took such good care of it, still looks new. Not even any buckle rash yet!
I felt kind bad, since I know after a couple years it will be dirty and used. got a couple nicks already on the first gig when I was selling merch it got kicked around a little.
Plays super nice, sounds great, straight neck, I love buying basses from folks like this! a craiglister even!
I've been wanting a Japanese bass since I visited there early this year, and what a find!
I had a USA one a few years back, and it was good, but this thing plays so much nicer, and the finish on the neck is super smooth. I was going to strip it, but no need.
I'm leaving the covers on for a while just because I never had a bass with them on there, so it is interesting to adjust my playing to fit between them.
