I had the body for this bass for a while. I saw it in a shop and bought it there and then. Somebody had put stickers on it, so the finish was faded to different degrees in rectangular shapes. Not cool. The finish was also a complete hassle to remove... it was bombproof! I gave up on it when I realised it would not take P pickups (without some DIY cordless drill routing first) and that the thing weighed a ton on a strap. The half-stripped and badly routed body is now up on evil bay, I have no need for it and my college friend could do with the ebay traffic.
