I have seen this bass for quite literally about 5 years at a local pawn shop, and never really gave it much more than a second glance. Well, i had a little money burning a hole in my pocket so i was out at the pawn shops again and decided to finally pull this thing off the rack and play it. With the exception of a little bit too much relief in the neck, old dead strings, and not very good intonation, i really liked it, so i took it home. after giving it a nice little set up, this thing plays amazing! I really dig the sound. From what i can tell, it is all original, with maybe the exception of the tuners? They are sparzel locking tuners, not sure if they would be what it came with. Serial number is 005xx, Anyone have an idea of a year for this?. The pickups from what i can find are the duncan basslines? It is all passive, and the pots are nice and quite. Might hang on to this one for a while.
