    '98 American (Standard) would be STB with heel adjust truss ... not MIM Standard machines and custom shop decal .. etc, etc ...

    I saw the 55 bids and wondered what I was missing, then checked the bids and the majority are all from 3-4 people, with very little feedback ...

    The machines and truss adjust look very much like mim standard.

    Everything about that bass looks like a MIM Standard ... except what the seller is showing stuck on the headstock

    .. also, I could be wrong, but a Custom Shop bass would carry the serial number that started with 'C' and come with a hardshell case?? .. and with the cheap MIM Standard quality tuners on it ??

    ... I requested full serial # along with other questions, with no reply .... so if I am missing something here, would be glad to hear where I am mistaken .. but this is MIM Standard as I see it based on components

    It's a fugazi. That's no CS Bass.
