    I like it, but the price is not so nice.

    Edit: See post #7 for the link that works.

    It looks to be some sort of reissue, meaning it's probably built in the last 5 years or so. The reason I say this, is the bolt-on screws is using bushings instead of a neck plate, but then again, I could be completely wrong :)

    They used those bushings in the '50s and '60s on cheaper models that weren't worthy of a neck plate. The pickups are Kay speed bumps, probably '60s. The tuners look MIJ. I think it's a rare cheapo that might sound real good. I have one of those pickups by the neck in a hollow body and it's a nice vintage sound.

    I actually really like it...aside from the fact that he's asking $850 for a $250 dollar bass...
