Hi! I picked this bass up a few weeks ago to keep my Series II company. What if anything can you tell me about it. Thanks!

Cheers,
Jim

The original owner was from South Carolina and purchased on November 16, 1983. The second owner purchased on January 13, 1989 and was also from South Carolina.

Ooops! I forgot to add that the electronics received the RF upgrade in June of 2007.
