I am so stoked, this is the bass that started it all for me about 2 months ago, when i bacame interested in the bass. I had seen the '75 Re-issue and knew i had to have one, in natural with the black block inlays and maple neck. Well i finally broke down and picked up a brand spakin new bass, straight out of the box...she is a virgin indeed..man oh man this bass really sounds sweet, love the tone, i put in the rear pot, and the sound is just like those 70's....im sure every one has seen these basses so i wont bore u with pics. i am one happy puppy. I have my MIA '75 Re-issue Fender Jazz, and my sweet Pedulla! Life does not get any better....ooh yea forgot next year a Fodera and im set, so it can get better.
