    I put this bass on layaway at a pawnshop 2 weeks ago.

    I got a CRAZY good deal on this bass.

    I finally picked it up and got it set up.

    I really like the EMG actives that are in this bass.

    I've never heard what the original Fender/Kubicki active electronics sounded like in this bass, so I can't comment.

    This EMG is simple but very effective and provides excellent clear and punchy tones.

    My son put it through it's paces last night at a youth church service.

    He said it played and sounded amazing. He's got a great ear, so I believe him

    Here's some pics:

    Who wants to know?
    I had one of these when they were new. Great basses! Pau ferro fingerboard. 5 in-line tuners and a swamp ash body [on mine] + a 2TEK bridge when they were first released. The Kubicki electronics were way too sterile for my taste. Too bad I never could find the type of p/u's I was looking for as back then 3-string p/u's weren't as available as they are now [no shop in Hollywood had anything at all!]. In the past few years I've seen unmodified versions going for $900. Adjusted for inflation that ain't too bad as I got mine new for that in '93 . . . :)

    Enjoy!!!

    Like the "no pick guard" clean look. Sharp bass.

    Thanks howlin.

    The modification of the EMG electronics makes this bass sound very solid and punchy.

    I've never heard what the original Fender/Kubicki active electronics sound like, but what I've read, they weren't really loved my most owners.

    I'm glad mine was already modified.:)
