    It's on the DiPinto site:
    http://dipintoguitars.com/vintage/Default.htm
    Click left "basses," it's six down, $450.

    Here's the description if you can't be bothered:
    90's Fender P-Bass, Japanese
    90's, made in Japan, all original, excellent condition. Cool metallic candy apple red finish. Sounds and plays nice. Comes with gig bag.
    $450

    Any opinons on this particular era of P's? Or this one at this price.
    They make a simple thing so complicated. ;)

    Sounds like a pretty good deal to me. 90's MIJ Fenders have a good reputation, and that looks like a killer bass. I would try it out if at all possible, but it shouldn't fail to please if you're a P-bass fan.

    The comment about being a P-bass fan got me up out of the house and down to Guitar Center. THey happened to have a new MIA Metallic Red. I think it would look the same as this one. I was not moved. MAybe this one would be impressive in person but im not driving to Philly to find out. I realized i do like the P-neck. I have an Essex P and dig that. I wanted to step but now im mixed up.
    Another store had a natural 57 Reissue, about $1200. im
    giving up on ebay and posting "finds" and will start dreaming about this one. It was like there was a light from above on it. Maye there was!

    I own a bass that looks exactly like this one. It is a '97 MIM P-bass and I think it's the same color as this, metallic red finish. I like the bass, looks good, sounds good & plays great. The strap holder came out once and the electronics needed shielding though. All in all, I never regretted buying this bass.
