  1. Looks like a 51 reissue, what so special about that?

    Okay, the rosewood fretboard is new, these basses never had a rosewood fretboard, until now. :meh:

    Don't the 51 reissues have the old school pickup (like the Sting signature)? This has the split coil one, either that or my eyesight's goin out on me.

    I can't get past the pickguard... are the pups the same as the current P bass models, or are they vintage?

    Interesting combination of features!

    It's basically kinda like a '62 reissue P-bass with '51 reissue cosmetics, right?

    I wonder what that Badass II bridge would make the "old-school-single-coil-pickup-equipped" reissues sound like?:)

    I love that bass, it's just missing one thing. A B string.

    Music 123 is selling them. The price tag isn't too bad... or is it? Its an interesting bass, though I'd definately want to play one before buying it.
  8. Yes, I see this now.

    I am really wanting to check this thing out.....:eek:
