Bass is in good shape, there is wear on the paint but the neck and frets are beautiful. Plays like a dream. Better than most american Fenders as many of you know in terms of quality. At 20 years this bass is getting more sought after and now considered 'vintage Japanese' amongst collectors. Price on this bass will increase and increase as the years go by. I think the pickups are Antiquity's, they have well aged magnets, the bobbins underneath are gray and they have pencil numbers on them. I just got it in a trade from someone who owed me money. Would be willing to trade for a Sting Tele P-bass. Or other nice playing Tele P-Bass. No case. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org Cheers.
