My friend just bought one in, and offered it to me for 275. I don't mind. It's a great bass. Does anyone have one or has anyone played one? When I saw it, I realized the things I could do with it. When I buy it, I'm going to remove the finish and stain the neck and body with a nice dark stain (and then gloss both, the neck is unfinished), get it a new preamp, new knobs, new tuners, stingray pickups (It looks like they could fit witih minor cosmedic alterations). Also, it's partially string thru (Kind of odd bridge), I'm going to find out if a hipshot tremelo would work. Any comments or suggestions?
