    1981 Electra Phoenix x640B
    Made in Japan's Matsumoku factory.
    Active EQ tone controls with master volume, frequency select and Mid range Parametric cut and boost.
    Three micro switches for series/parallel, phase in/phase out and EQ on/off.
    Two offset Magnaflux pickups.
    Maple fingerboard and long scale neck
    Solid natural ash body with jet black finish
    Brass hardware and nut
    Someone tried to strip the finish off the neck so it looks a bit funky but feels and plays fine.
    Bridge pickup has wiring issues that need attention.

    Still a mean sounding and looking and playing bass
    Gig bag

    Included is a preamp with all the knobs and switches...I believe Seymour Duncan? Was with SD pickups inside a BC Rich US Eagle before I switched it.

    Trade interests include Kramer Aluminum basses, Guitar or Bass amp heads, maybe some other stuff...just ask.

    Super cool bass. I had a vintage one in the natural finish. Wished I wouldn't have sold it!

    What year was the Eagle bass the harness came out of?

    The harness was from a 1980 US Eagle - but it was paired with SD pickups, so I don't know if it was the original.
    I got a new Moser preamp for the Eagle and saved this. The Phoenix seems to have some wiring issues with the bridge pickup so I figured to include this.

    Ah, ok. Just wanted to make sure you were aware that if you could verify it was an original Moser harness, you might be better off parting it out. But looks like you're already clued in.
