    This bass NEEDS to move as well as the other in my sig. I'm only asking [DEL]$450[/DEL] [DEL]$400[/DEL] [DEL]$335[/DEL] $300 shipped final drop which is a great deal for the EXC condition bass.
    Replaced the neck pickup back to the original stock split P.

    Upgraded with a Made by Honer USA, same as their headless basses. USA Fender Deluxe HB. ALSO added one of the BEST 2 band preamps for this style bass. Gives it more tonal options and with the trim pot, you can go active or stay passive. (sounds way BETTER than before, GUARANTEED!)

    Kramer Focus 7000. Candy apple red with matching headstock. Made in 1983. These came from the ESP plant. Excellent Japan quality. 1 piece Maple neck, rosewood fretboard, solid alder body. Neck is straight and adjusts smoothly.
    Just restrung with a Pro-setup, and intonation with new set of D'Addario XL nickelwounds. Wonderful passive electronics with a dual J in the bridge that gets very mean. [DEL]Schaller pickups and[/DEL] Schaller roller bridge.
    Switches are pickup selector and series/parallel. Weighs in @ 9 lbs even. Nice, low action. 1-5/8" nut (feels like a 1-1/2 with the 'C' profile) and very easy to play. Back of neck has NO FLAWS whatsoever. No dings or dents. These basses are big time sleepers. The quality is great on these. Very resonant with a piano-like tone.

    Its got a few dings and scratches, but I would consider this bass to be in excellent condition and very clean! Great playing and sounding bass for this price.

    The shiny CAR color is off on these inside pics. Check last 2 pics for true color, or go to the photobucket ALBUM .

    Original wiring includes Prewired pickup selector switch. There is a rubber-tube-covered screw placed in the hole atm.

    Preamp is from Hohner USA. I had ordered a few when I received my first BBass. I love em. Brings the POWER and leaves the natural tone intact.

    Had one of these way back in the day; it was a great bass stock so with the upgrades that have been done to it I imagine it is killer now.

    Thx Keith. It does sound terrific! I mostly am in need of a dual soapbar bass. This one weighs 9.5lbs dense alder and you can hear it!

    Cmon, anyone... PRICE DROP!! FINAL PRICE: $345 East, $360 West. Otherwise I'll part it out, and the neck is to die for.
