    I kind of like the idea of a P Bass with an additional Jazz PU and a Jazz neck. The California Series, I think made around '96 '97 '98, seems more appealing to me that the later all Mexican made ones.

    - Anyone have any experience with these?
    - How have they held up?
    - What are these going for in used playable condition?

    Had one a while back, red with the gold anodized pickguard. Played great, sounded great, and was real versatile with the P/J pickup combo. The build quality was better than my MIA P-basses. You won't be disappointed. Go for it. :smug:
