    Yeah they're alright. I'm a huge 80's freak and I've been wanting one of these for a long time just to play around with. I was considering modding it up.. but that thing is really just too beautiful to mess with other than maybe doing a pot job and possibly checking the wiring. It's a cheap bass so.. never know how the grounds on it are going to be.

    You weren't kidding when you said you really wanted it. You got lucky that no one decided to run up your bid(s) at the end.

    I have a ZZB Explorer! It was my first bass. I really do love it, problem is over time the truss rod has bent to an unrecoverable position, unless I get it pressed.

    Problem is I'd loose the lovely green burst finish I have on mine :/


    Congrats on the new bass dude, they rock!

    Those pickups look exactly like the ones on my 1981 TSB-400. They are pretty hot output pickups, with lots of low mid thump. I think you'll like them alot.

    I had a sniping program backing me up with like 675.. The last 30 seconds I manually put in a big bid and then waited... I was expecting to take it home for about 500 but amzingly the other guy cut off at like 407-something.

    Yeah.. I talked to the seller over the phone and he went on about how he got his digital camera to finally work right so he just zapped shots... It's a little overkill, but I can't complain.. He did a nice job.

    My 2nd bass was one of those. Saw the pointy thing sitting in the corner of the shop and I walked out the door for $175. By the time I got it home, I hated the thing and took it back.

    I guess it's one of those 'you like it or you don't.' I've always been a huge fan of explorers .. so.. you know.. :eyebrow:
