    Bought this from Guitar Center’s used site, literally sight unseen (no photos were uploaded). But given their generous return policy I decided to roll the dice. It’s a 2012 American Standard FSR, hand stained natural ash. I’ll probably swap out the black hardware, but this thing is a beast of a bass so far!

    Anyone have experience with these? I think only 150 were ever made. I’m hoping this can replace a 78 P I use as my main player - half the price and seems to approximate that era of bass but with more modern features.

    Congrats on the acquisition. Bass looks great, and would look more '70s appropriate' with the black hardware swapped for chrome, as you mention. Retire your 78 if this one fits the niche.

    The black hardware objectively looks great, FWIW.

    It’s a cool look for sure, just a little different than what I’m going for.
