    Ok, after reading someone else's post I had to get me a $54.95 ,.no tax, free shipping P style bass. If for no other reason then a modding project, curiosity, addiction to "the I can't believe it deals".

    So I made my list of GFS hardware and electronics and guess what?!. This bass works great. I was intonated and the action set at acceptable level "as is" . The only thing I will require is getting use to a really fat neck. Stuff like this blows me away.
    50 dollar P Bass.

    Is the white guitar w/black pg a late 60's Ibanez?

    EDIT: I was in my local music store today and saw what it it - it's a (new/recent) Peavey slide-guitar (can't recall the model name) The one I saw was red but I recognized it from your pic.

    This is what I thought it was (somewhat similar shape) 1966 Ibanez, one of the last Hoshino Gakki electric guitars made at the Tama factory which were very rarely seen in the US.

    The camera is my Amazon Moto G Play lol. I did an extensive mod this morning ...a set of tape wound LaBellas and string height adjustment...didn't even need to intonate . I feel like I'm really suseptible to marketing hype after getting this. It sounds way better then my Hofner Travel Bass. So I have a $50 bass with $40 strings.
