And it was a really nice bass! Maple fretboard version too ... The tone was right there, and the feel was great, with the satin finished neck. Red color looked awesome and overall, I was totally impressed. The shop had it priced at $629 w/ a gig bag, which seemed like a good price for such a solid instrument. I ain't shoppin', mind you--I have that Active Jazz Deluxe arriving Wednesday AND the Space Bass nearly completed--but it never hurts to look! Peace!
