I won the Evilbay auction on this P Bass. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=014&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&viewitem=&item=330063647881&rd=1&rd=1 It has the mods I would generally do as well as the color I was looking for. I'm not sure why he put a pickguard screw right in the middle of the pickguard though. It would probably catch a finger nail while slapping, no big deal to remove. I have never seen a black Badass bridge. It's kinda cool looking. I think I got a good deal considering it comes with a hard case, new set of strings, and he is including the original pickup. I am surprised nobody else bid on this bass. (The second bid was me increasing my highest incremental bid by $25) Question? This is an '04 I believe. Does it have the same nitro finish as the newer Highway series? I seem to remember that they used to call it "satin" finish. I know it does not have the graphite in the neck which I won't miss due to the additional weight. I considered the Highway P's and the Lakland Skyline Glaub. Although I would probably rather have a Glaub (and still hope to someday) I figure I saved a few hundred bucks which is always nice. I know it is commonly said that every bass player needs at least one P bass, now I have 2... Anyway, Merry Christmas to me!
