This is a GREAT Electra bass from the renowned Matsumoku plant and one in wonderful shape despite being at least 40 years old. Original P pickup gives true vintage sound (particularly in passive mode). Aftermarket quarter-pounder J PU provides the bark and slap power. Together they produce a wealth of usable sounds. Versatile onboard pre-amp with a soulful sound. Highly figured maple neck. Professionally refinished in Carolina blue. New flatwounds. Altogether an ultra cool oldie in excellent+ shape that will kick the sonic excrement out of newer basses costing twice as much. Just not getting any use with me because I have too many basses and at under 9 lbs, this well-balanced honey (which is NOT heavy to most) is a bit too much for my aged shoulder for three long sets. $700 plus actual shipping costs in the lower 48 (I have at least $1000 in this instrument). Comes with a 14 day return guarantee if you're not happy. No bass trades, please. Would consider Godin guitars.
