    I bought this bass for $125.00. I had it professionaly redone. The paint was so bad, it would fall off when you touched the bass. The bridge was bent forward and the frets were worn out. It has a thin neck like the jass and emg's. It came with the emgs so I don't have the origional pickups. I have the origional case ( It was kind of ragged out) so I don't use it. :bassist:

    Sweet I have a 78 p bass, all origional, with one paint chip. I got it for $200 and love it. It has the 3 tone sunburst maple neck and all. Nice buy! :bassist:

    I also like the way it looked before, it had a nice warm look to it. Though it still looks great now.
     
  6. I agree, I like the old worn out look too, but when the paint is falling off by just touching it, it's time to refinish it. Looks top notch, enjoy it.

    I like the black/black better in the old one but yeah the paint thing is bad, but i like the black pickguard better.

    I think it seems be the general idea that:
    black finish+maple neck=BLACK PICKGUARD!
