    Just wondering. I'm considering buying one. Seller says the original pickups are in working condition. What do you guys think?

    I had one for years, bought it new in the 80s. Mine was all maple and it was heavy, but a great sounding and playing bass. I ended up tearing the frets out with a pair of pliers and putting silly putty in the fret slots, just kidding but i did convert it to fretless. It sounded great, but i have never been a fretless player. To me, this is a decent price.

    Haha, that's hilarious. Well, I just might buy it. And my original intention was to convert it into a fretless!

    Assuming the electronics are ok, that bass in that condition is absolutely worth $500
     
  7. Did you ever get that thing? Those are great instruments, one of them is my main bass now. It just went all through Europe and the UK with me, too!
