Hi, i bought this bass used from a friends brother for $180...who got it from a friend...who got it from a pawn shop...lord knows where it was before that. I was hoping you guys could tell me something about the model that it is. All I know: It's a Charvel 5 string active p/j, bolt on neck, rosewood fingerboard. Serial # C002221 And yeah, the pickups are a mess. The J is really quiet so you have to turn the amp up alot to hear it...and the cover to one of the P pickups came off. If I can find out how much this bass cost brand new I'll decide whether or not I want to pay $160 for an EMG p/j set.
