    Uber-score. Usually am hating the white pickups but it looks like these have mellowed with age and just really work with the overall package.

    Where did you get this? Looks like they have some nice inventory. Way too new and nice of stuff to be a pawnshop, clearly.

    Guitar center judging by the tag on the amp behind it. The pickups aren't original, but even then, $920 is a great price.

    I've played those before, great feel. I'm planning on getting an all maple P neck from Warmoth for my Squier J, just because they have such a clean look.
    Anyways, original pickup or not you got a score........ the only two I've seen retailed above $1600!

    I spy a Stargazer Bass... wouldn't mind picking one up. Pales in comparison to the steal you just got, my friend.
  15. also, that bass was around $600 when i saw it about a week ago... hope they didnt raise the price just before you bought it. either way, thats a killer deal on a killer bass!
  16. Awesome bass! I love the look and tone of fretless P basses.

    Not an especially great deal, but not a rip-off either. That pickup is probably a DiMarzio Model P added in the late 70s or early 80s. Not original. I love those maple fingerboarded fretless P basses.
