    hello guys, I just put 50 bucks down to put this bass on lay away to be picked up at the end of the month. It has barts (mk 1 I believe) and the rest you can see from the photos, it appears to be a higher level btb if Im not mistaken, I simply fell in love with its tone, looks, and playability! If you guys can id this bass I would be sooo greatful!!!

    Thanks sooo much everyone!!!

    I've got a BTB1305e but mine is a neck through with "black chrome" hardware, black knobs, and sweepable mid switch.

    BTB basses are very very nice.

    This is a 455.

    Korean Production, Barts and VariMid3, Aluminum Hardware.

    I do not recall 555 being bolt ons. I might be wrong, but I think one will find the Neck Stringers as Walnut.

    Should have read Swin's note.

    I have a Fretless 1206 looks lots like it,
