Not strictly new, but now in the state that I intended when I bought it recently... Here's a close shot of the body/grain in some decent light when I first bought it. And now, modded and setup... EMG Geezer P, Hipshot HB-7 tuners, Babicz bridge, more black bits and pieces (knobs, jack nut and washer, pickguard screws, strap buttons, string retainer, neck plate and screws)... Tuned drop C with Kalium strings (47/63/86/130), think I'll try bigger gauges at some point to increase the tension a bit. I know there are plenty of people out there that think the sandblasted basses are ugly as sin, but I love it! And it's not just the "everyone thinks their baby is beautiful" effect... it's light and comfortable to play, with no weird feeling from the finish, and I like that it's a bit different while still a P in all the important ways.
