Needed a 5-string quickly for an upcoming gig and didn't want to spend any money. I posted a 1981 Fender Mustang (that I never ever use) for $300 on craigslist. Damn! People jumped all over it. Gone in practically 5 minutes. I know I could have gotten more, but the bass was altered so any vintage value is out the window - and I wanted to do it quickly. I won't regret it. Right? So I decided on this for the 5 string http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=4713&item=3734932502 Plus now I'll have a great new gigbag, and $80 extra bucks in my pocket. My hopes are the bass feels great. Sounding great would be even greaterer, but I'm not expecting the world here. If I like it I'll invest in PU upgrades. If I hate it they say I can return it and just pay shipping. OK. Now tell me nice things about my new bass.
