    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?

    It looks almost black IMO in that pic. But I love wine/maroon colors on bass
