Made in Japan. Black with maple. It has some dings on the front of the body and on the headstock, some belt buckle rash on the back but considering the age I'd say the bass is in very good shape. The neck is big and chunky. The action is pretty low without buzz. The tone is absolutely killer. It has a DiMarzio p-up. It's fat and growly and sits perfectly in the mix. A real player. Comes with a gigbag. No trades unless it's a set of 4-string jazz bass single coils +cash on your end. $250 shipped to the 48. PM me.
