    I've owned these basses and they are as good as anything you will find in Quality and Playability. This will blow any Fender Jazz bass out of the water.

    I own an STR LS 549 as well. It sports a 3 digit serial number that is very close to the one shown here which suggests that just like mine, this is an early model. I have bought and sold many, many basses over the last 30 years. Many were bought after I bought my STR. It is an incredible instrument and it is not going anywhere. Three notes with your eyes closed and you know your hands came in contact with a high end, hand made instrument. They exude refinement in how they feel and the sound is just as phenomenal. This one in particular is gorgeous. The grain and finish are exotic but understated enough to fit in any musical genre. Don’t hesitate. You will not regret it.
