  1. Being a fan of Fender(ish) basses, fretlesses, and burst finishes, I'll have to say you did very, very well. Enjoy your new toy!

    Agree with the Poplar comment. My Jazz is Poplar and sounds awesome, the downside is the slight weight penalty.

    I've got a MIM P in Poplar. From what I've seen, poplar tends to be lighter than Alder, though not as light as some basswoods and swamp ash's. It's a fine wood for instruments, with it's only drawback being less than attractive grain and often green streaking making solid colors or sometimes heavy-colored translucent finishes the best way to go.

    just a heads up for my TB kin -

    this bass retails (without my upgrades of course) for 30,000 yen. NEW.

    that's about $268 US - not including shipping.

    i have seen this on a particular auction site for CONSIDERABLY MORE - USED!

    and the listing calls it ALDER. shows the same model name.

    just a buyer beware.
