    Nice price on a bass you don't see every day.

    Just as a FYI, this is made in Korea, not made in Japan, but impressive quality, fit and finish for the price.

    Yes, these are in the Lakland Skyline quality camp, not the legendary Made in Japan 70s and 80s camp. But still, well made and a good deal at that price.

    I purchased 1 of the 2 they have in stock. I received it last week and yes, it is the Korean made RI with a so/so peavey pup but the finish and quality are pretty impressive. For the $500 I spent on it I must say it is the most gorgeous Korean made bass I have ever seen or played. At some point I will be replacing the pup and the bridge most likely. Sounds pretty good as-is though and the set up was 100% right out of the box. The downside was that it took a month and two emails to get it here therefore, this will be my first and last experience with hello music.
