    scored this bass off shopgoodwill.com for $75 ($110 with shipping). Took a chance and so glad I did. The original pictures by goodwill made it look like the nut was gone and there were possible dents and scratches throughout the body. Well, it cleaned up beautifully and lots of marks came off with a bit of elbow grease. Also, the nut was there. Lots of details on this bass make it interesting; The square string tree, the black nut and the white pickup covers. It’s super heavy. I haven’t weighed it but it’s definitely around 12 lbs. Cedar body. the resonance is unreal. So far I’ve adjusted the intonation, sanded down the gloss on the neck to a satin finish and made some new knobs out of polymer clay. I’m loving it. Anyone else have one out there?

    NBD!!

    Nice basses though. They can be heavy, but I'm not sure they're cedar... Some kind of mango wood maybe?

    Wow India. I would put an “na, USA” after “India”. Just for fun.

    Mine doesn’t say Made in India though! But it’s the same bass

    I recently put a new bone nut on it and it’s my new favorite bass!
    These are really solid and great players, if a bit heavy, mine is 10 pounds
