I bought this from another TBer several months ago but need to get rid of some of my gear. The paint job was created by a tattoo artist in St. Louis and it's actually pretty cool - it's a professional job and was done well. The back is solid black. It has a clear pickguard to showcase the artwork, and you can see the wires in the control cavity. The guard has a small crack in the cavity/knob area but does not effect anything. Older Dimarzio pickups with some good growl. Body is supposed to be of USA 70's vintage but I have not confirmed that - I'll check the date stamp and report back. Average weight, not heavy. Neck is a non-Fender aftermarket with a Fender P-bass logo; slimmer jazz bass style nut width. Comes with hard case. I will post more pics later. These pics are from the guy I bought it from. Questions welcomed. $500 shipped to CONUS only. Payment by paypal.
