and i got a good deal on it too! I did find the neck to be a bit dodgy- not exactly straight. It had some bends in it. Also, the tone pot rubs against the metal. I tried to pull it up but i might have to sand that down. Also, did anyone else have a problem with some noisy pickups? Other than that its a fantastic bass for the price and it might be replacing my p-bass. Why do i keep going back and forth between jazz and p ?
