    I kinda hate to do this but I know this poor old P is not going to be seeing much playing time now that I have my new Bongo.
    Its a 96 and used to be a red burst but the finish just wasnt holding up so i sanded it back to natural. Unfortunately the reason this piece of wood was burst was because of a big ole knot on the edge. On a burst the outer(darker) edges are first sprayed withan opaque primer and feathered to nothing. Fender was able to hide the knot using this technique. I was bummed out when I uncovered it but still liked it better than the red color that was peeling off around the edges. ( where ever this primer was it wasnt holding the finish)
    There's also a bunge on the back of the neck from taking a stage dive one night. When i refinished it i also installed a new bridge humbucker with an Fender original replacement.
    This bass sounds and plays awesome, it just has a bit of a funky vibe to it visually. Original hardshell case is included but it has a busted latch...........550.00 plus shipping
