    Picked this up on a gc run a while back...was kind of an impulse buy as bass plays fantastic...but I don't really need another P bass so here she is

    Logo was removed but I'm guessing it's a aria or perhaps a Memphis
    Made in Japan likely mastusomko made- quality hardware- nice feeling neck with "correct" feeling radius. Replaced guard and pickup ( USA fender I think)... sounds very good nice warm thump and growl...honestly a better tone and feel than some of the 70s fenders I've had. 9lbs on bathroom scale. Frets are in good shape trus works perfect- nice low action
    $300 shipped unless you're west coast then $325...ups kills me on California

    Trades run it by me...don't really need anything but basses or guitars

    I have a Squier P5 I'd trade. With a Ulayte pickup and 250k pots.

    What's the neck on this like? Chunky?

    I can't believe this hasn't moved yet. A Maple/ Ash Japanese p at this price? I have a American tort guard that would fit this too. Hmmm
