    That is the same sage green bass. Looks like it has had a few mods to it. the pickup covers do not look to be original. The bridge does not look like an alleva bridge and the tuning machines have been changed.
    Was it like this when you got it?

    Do you have all the original covers,bridge , and tuning keys?

    There have been a few requests to verify the electronics are legit....I uploaded pics to the OP. Electronics are legit. I took a few other photos as well. I wanted to capture that when whomever installed the aftermarket bridge, that they did NOT in drill new holes - AND - the new bridge has not left an impression on the finish. So if someone wanted to put an OEM bridge back on, there shouldn't be any issues. Lastly, you will see confirmation that the bass DOES have the upgraded CNL fingerboard. So there.....I hope this clears up any confusion. Thx!

    Is that the Twin Towers burned into the back of the headstock?

    Yes. Something Jimmy has done to his basses for several years.

    Looks like my family will be selling and buying a new home. I need to unload this and help generate some cash.

    Yeah, it suggests that you look into Building 7, Floor 23 from 9/11.
