SOLD!!! I just got this last week and did some pickup swapping. It now has A BLACK NORDY NP4 PICKUP in it, NOT the white one in the pictures. It has a few chips, scratches and dings but nothing really horrible. The finish on the bridge is also showing its age. It looks, plays and sounds fantastic though. This bass is rock solid, everything works pefectly This is NOT a Matsumoku era Electra like the other ones I've sold here. It's basically a Hondo with the Electra logo. The Hondo version gets pretty good praise here if you do a search. I paid $279 shipped with the stock pickup in it. I would like $300 for it shipped with the Nordy. I didn't care for the sound of the NP4 in my Aria P bass at all but it seems to work REALLY well in this bass. The only trade I would consider is Squier VM TB P Bass. Or possibly another interesting P bass, old Squier, etc. ............or a T-45..............or a T-40 I could add funds to round out the right deal.
