    I hate it when people pull that. Also, he's wrong about it being early made by Mike unlike now, actually kinda the opposite since in 1992 he had a bunch of people making them in his shop and now it's just him making them.

    Yeah, I noticed that. But if it's good shape, I'm interested.

    I'd be a bit wary of this dude, he's saying some things I know are wrong and some I'm pretty sure are wrong also, the pickups and knobs I don't think are original from 92. If I were to buy this without any way of getting a refund I'd make sure the truss worked, the neck had no twisting and that the epoxy on the fingerboard was intact and level, and those tests aren't necessarily in the wheelhouse of the average TBer to be blunt.

    the pickups are most likley not stock as pedullla has been using barts for ever.
    Perhaps its a custom build?
    but the knobs are the same style as on mvp/buzz basses.

    Excellent points. I'm going to blow it off. Not worth the risk.

    It's a deluxe, which at the time was the middle build of the bass, so definitely not a custom. There's a thread on here somewhere explaining the differences.
