    A cool bass indeed!! Early/mid 80's Westone Thunder II active bass in what appears to be hi-gloss walnut. Lined fretless with just about no board wear. Active electronics, P/J pickups. Its a really slick sounding bass. I just got it a couple days ago, and still haven't quite figured out the controls and switches. I think they are: 3-way pickup selector, master vol, master tone, Equalizer tone w/center click, dual tone SW, phase-bypass-single coil mini switches (I THINK!!)

    In pretty amazing shape for an 80's bass...has a few minimal nicks and some light scuffs, but it is VERY presentable! Comes with manuals and some Westone printed material, and has the original mahogany color Westone hard case in pretty nice shape too!!

    I have no other background on this one...it was a trade, and there isn't a whole lot of info online about these.

    Anyway...$350 with the HSC buys it!! (its pretty light, so shipping should be cheap)

    Do the fretlines look like a darker wood?

    Wow, if you ask a luthier today to build you a bass like this, it would cost you an arm and a leg. The quality of these 80s MIJ basses is impressive, I don't play fretless but I'm soooo tempted!

    What's the scale?
