Bought this rare bass several weeks ago off of Ebay. I haven't been able to access this website for the last two weeks, so I'm finally posting pics of this bass. Made in 1982, I've heard that Fender produced only 300 of these instruments. I really like the active preamp; it gives the bass so much more range and power! It also isn't heavy (about 9.5 lbs.) and the neck plays wonderful (about the same profile as my Steve Harris signature). I mainly bought this as an investment, but it looks like this one will be seeing quite a bit of live playing time!
