I'm not a huge fan of Fender, but for $200 and a set of EMG's I'm a buyer. Came with Tweed hardshell case, EMG pickups (the good ones, not the crappy Selects) and shipping was only another $20. Besides a slight chop job in the electronics cavity and wiring the tone and volume pots backwards, which I put back the right way, the bass is immaculate. I'm very happy with this Fender! * Year 2000 * EMG Pickups * Midnight Wine Finish * Rosewood Fretboard * Fender Tweed Case Whattya all think?
