    I got this bass about a month ago, it was originally made in 1992, I can't believe it was in such great shape, aside from a significant amount of fret wear it only had a tiny ding in the body. I had to have the frets re-leveled but including the work I spent less than 325 for it shipped from Guitar Center.

    Sounds pretty good but I think the pickups need to be repotted. I might just put in a set of bartolinis in it.

    A sound sample:

    I have nothing to disclose at this time.
    Nice find there...!!!

    I had a 1992 SDGR 950TC...with EMG P/Js and a EMG BTS electronics.

    That thing would cook.
