... and to be honest - it is a great bass. I have a 78 Jazz and an 80 4001 also - but I plan on using the Yamaha as my #1. It really does sound good - and after a set-up ( which was very much needed) and some good strings - it plays good too. I have been a snob in the past - and have played some pretty crappy imports to be honest. But this one is a winner - and it looks cool too.
