I acquired this bass in a trade yesterday. The serial decoded to a 2004 Highway One P-bass in honey blonde. I knew very little about this series and never played one previous to the trade. It had dirty old strings and typical play wear but sounded and felt great. I tightened everything up, set it up, and slapped some flats on it. Now it’s awesome. I can’t believe how light and resonant it is compared to most P-Basses I’ve played. The finish is thin enough to see the one-piece body underneath. My buddy’s Am STD is like a boat anchor compared to it. According to online research/opinions the early 2000’s models are inferior to later ones with high mass bridge and graphite necks. Can’t compare but this bass is just about perfect as a traditional P-bass. It’s a great gigging bass since it’s already got some natural relicing and wasn’t pricey yet feels professional grade. Now I’m curios about the strats and teles from this series. Very impressed!
