    Got my holy grail bass; I'm a happy man! Just snagged this gorgeous '89 P Bass; she's a great player, and sounds exactly what you'd expect an old P to sound like, which is to say perfect! Props to the great guys at Music-Go-Round Albuquerque, who were great to deal with via phone and email, and gave me a great deal on this killer bass! I highly recommend them. Anyways, here's a couple pics. Nothing you guys and gals haven't seen before, but I feel like a proud new dad anyways, so here goes!

    Nice, but now you're to blame for the incoming GAS pains.....

    I occasionally wet the bed.
    Has it had a re-fret? They don't look as thin as the vintage frets on my 62 AVRI.

    I think they just look wider in the pictures; they're definitely vintage frets. Aside from a couple small chips, this thing is really a "closet classic". I'd be surprised to learn it had enough playing time for a refret, given the overall condition.

    Mine is a 2003 model and is showing signs of wear where my forearm rests. The thin nitro finish is easy to wear so your probably right about the little play time. It is an awesome bass. I bought a MIM as a backup and preferred the thinner neck so I bought an all parts neck for my RI. Enjoy the bass!

    That was a great score - nice burst, nice woodgrain and IMO the pickguard looks much better than the brown-ish ones that Fender has been using the past couple of years.
