    Technically it's called Old Lake Blue (OLB). Here we have a great playing/sounding P! Hardly any wear at all. It's a non-import model (even though it's imported haha) and the part number is PB62-US-OLB. The US in the part number means it has upgraded US hardware and is the top of the line model for the Japanese market. I switched the cap to a .01uf and the harness to CTS/Switchcraft. The pickup is a Curtis Novak 'Charlie Christian' and it sounds huge. You can check it out here Precision Bass / Charlie Christian Style Pickup

    Bass comes shipped in an SKB case. Strung with your choice of either D'Addario Nickels or Chromes. $849 shipped.

    Oh yeah...I have 3 Japan Fenders currently. Top notch all of them! I just have 4 P basses right now and can't justify that many.

    Lies! You can always justify it.

    It's CIJ which I believe puts it 2006-2008.

    Weight...I don't have an accurate scale here but it's not heavy by any means. I have a CS Pino that's around 8lbs and this one isn't noticeably more than that. I'd say ~9 lbs at most. It's really comfortable.

    Also, the neck is the thinnest front to back of all the P's I have. If you like wide and thin this one is perfect for you.

    No trades unless it's for a 5 string American Fender Jazz. I have a hole in my stable I need filled. ;)
