Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Every1TookMyName, Jul 23, 2001.


  1. Has finally been taken off of lay-away!!!!!!!!!!

    Specs you say? Here!

    alder body
    bolt on 21 fret rock maple neck w/ rosewood fretboard
    2 PRS high inductance passive magnetic pick ups (j-style)
    2 volume, 1 tone control, switchable pre amp



    mwahaha I love this bass! I'll try to get some pictures up soon!

    However, I have to change the strings. I hate the new string sound. :oops:

    Keep in mind that this is the newer model PRS, not the older.

    I've never played the new Prs Basses but I did play an older model bass last summer. I had the chance to buy it for $1000, but alas all I had was $800.. i think the guy would have sold it to me for that but i didn't get it b/c i was about to head off for college. Well that bass sounded killer. 3 single coil pickups with a dumby pickup in the back of the bass.. and a drop D tuner.. very nice.... I saw the exact same bass 6 months later a guitar/bass show sitting in with a man from Pennsylvania... he bought it from a guy in New york who bought it from some other dealer who bought it from the Man I was going to guy it from here In SC... but this dude had jacked up the price by $500... you can probably see it here at www.basspalace.com

    sorry i just wanted to tell my story.. :)

    sounds like pretty good darn bass! I've never really tried out PRS basses but with their awesome guitars, the basses should be pretty good! (Not true with some gibsons but ehhe) :D Congrats!
