    Hello all!

    I'm just wondering if anyone can shed some light on what I've got here. It's a PB551 80's? (E serial no) Japanese P-Bass but I can find very little information on them on-line. I'm primarily a guitarist and wanted to pick up something cheap for recording at home and grabbed this for €350 ($480) off a chap on a second hand website. Does anyone know anything about these basses? In 10 years of gigging around Ireland I've never seen one before, was it a design intended solely for the Japanese market and never meant for export? It's in decent knick anyway, and it sounds fantastic through my brothers bass rig which is the main thing, I'm playing it more than my guitars at the minute! :D

    Anyone have any info on them?
