    I just bought the same bass in black off TB so I'm letting my silverish one go. This was the Boxer series in Japan. I believe the model is pb-551. It's silverish-green in color and all original. The good: it's very light (8 lbs on my scale), plays great, truss works, sounds like a Pbass. The bad: Pretty much just cosmetics. It is missing the "f" caps on the knobs, one of the split shafts on the pots was half gone when I got it. It was wrapped in tape so the push-on knob would stay on. I filled the missing spot with something like mighty putty so now the top of the shaft is intact. The thing has obviously been played. It has a lot of nicks and dents all over. I have tried to photograph everything. The frets could use a little cleaning but they are not otherwise worn or uneven.
    $285 plus actual shipping which should be $30 or less, CONUS gets a pretty sweet pbass. Comes with a beat up fender chainsaw shaped case.
