I bought this about a year ago from Vintage Guy thinking that I needed a four string. I discovered, again, that I am addicted to fivers and this bass has been largely unplayed. It is way too nice to sit and will make someone a great backup or bar bass. It looks great, plays great, and sounds sweet, just not my thing. Here is the original post where I bought it: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/fs-last-my-4-string-parts-basss-$225-00-shipped-908616/ looking for $200 shipped in CONUS. You won't be disappointed.
