    I thought maybe bass players might want to see this. I liked it and wouldn't mind having it, and I don't play bass (although I have a Squier P-Bass.)

    The owner/player bought this from a man whose dad owned it and stuck it in a closet. It was in a gravel-floored basement leaning against the wall and he bought it for $400 CDN. He didn't like the pick guard and most of the chrome pieces so he took those off.

    I'm a wanna-be bass player myself, and I appreciate a bass as much as a nice guitar.

    I have a 2013 50s Classic Lacquer PBass and I love having it around to switch it up from guitar to keep things fresh.

    That said, I love the finish on the bass, and the fact it has a painted headstock make it that much cooler for me. I have a 95 AM STD Strat surf green with a matching head stock myself.

    Painted head stocks rule! :rock:

    So much right with that bass!
    Painted Headstock, Bound neck, Block inlays, Jazz Bass, nice color!

    Those holes would bug me though, against that nice green body.

    I'd have to fill or get a clear pick guard..... something.
