These were discussed in August last year. Looks fun and it's cheap:

Everything looks stock, except the aftermarket bridge. Wonder if he still has it, or does it really matter...

How surreal. That's the bass I sold to a pawnshop in LA a couple months ago.
The bridge is long gone, because it wasn't functional. I'm pretty sure the pickguard is a DIY job from a previous owner, it's really rather ugly IMO. And if you look carefully you'll notice a knob is missing. The bass fell off my bed and the knob broke :cry:
