    My 1997 cherry sunburst RB-5's serial is only four digits away... so the date of manufacture sounds correct. Mine has the single pickup and rosewood fingerboard. Guessing the truss rod tool is newer, as the original tool was a regular autoharp tuning wrench.

    I remember well being in a Minneapolis music store (that one on Lyndale) and sitting on a stool playing a Rapture for an hour straight til closing. It was a smokin' great axe with a fast modern feel. Great build quality. Always remember that. Bet this is killer, too.

    I think this will be a wish-I-never-sold-it bass.:)
    Unless you decide to keep it.:D

    Hey there. Has this been sold yet. I'm in Vancouver, Canada. Would you consider shipping it to me here by USPS, and if so, what would the shipping cost be? thanks.

    Man I drooled over this bass in the late 90's. Good to see such a fine example today.
