Your basic P-Bass with a thinner neck. This bass was mighty fine with the stock pickups, with the Bill Lawrence it came alive. Much more focused bottom, clearer highs, and perfect string-to-string balance. Just a hair under 1.5" at the nut, thin and fast neck with a finish worn to a very comfortable satin feel. Weighs 8.0# on the bathroom scale. Rock maple neck and maple fingerboard, western poplar body, poly finish on the body aged to a cream color. As you can see, plenty of authentic "road wear," the worst of which is a nice soldering-iron burn I put on the pickguard when I installed the new pickup last month. Please check out the photobucket link for more detailed photos of bumps and bruises. The good news is that the back of the neck is immaculate and smooth, the truss rod works fine both ways, and the neck is straight. Takes a low setup, as you can see in the pics. Zero fret sprout in the desert climate, which is typically tough on necks and fingerboards. Dunlop dual-design straplocks installed. This American beauty kicks the snot out of any Squier or offshored-Fender. You will not find another bass at this price with this quality. Micro-tilt neck and Bill Lawrence for less than the cost of a used CV or VM? Fuggetaboutit. Balances well on a strap, slightly neck-heavy when seated without one. Ships with the original pickup and a generic padded gig bag. $250 shipped west of the Mississippi, add another $25 to go east. CONUS only. Buncha pics here.
