I don't know much other than my own experience with it.. I bought it to play in a 80's tribute band. I ended up scoring a Hamer Blitz so this has to go to fund other items. From Vintage guitar I believe this came from the # 1 Japanese guitar maker back when they were doing all the great Ibanez's and Squier's, Greko's ect. This bass Play's awesome feels great and is just a joy. Neck through construction LPB, This bass is every bit of PBass that it should be. I have the original cream pups and knobs that will be included,,It has a basslines P installed, CTS pot's and input jack (The old ones were junk) and sweet MOP knobs. Beautiful rosewood fretboard. It has it's share of Dings and dents but it's loaded with Mojo!!! The bass ROCKS and is a great deal at 335.00 shipped to the Cont US only. Sorry no case buy will be packed professionally and double boxed! Cash only sale!
