This is as new. Sunburst/maple board. Actually some flame in the neck as well. You benefit that I went thru 2 other ones which had defects. These are great basses, if you find a good one. Also upgraded with fresh Daddario 45-132 chromes. I have owned the Fender USA P5 and i can say this sounds identical. No space to keep this one. $245 local Boston sale. $275 (cash) shipped up to 1000 miles.
