Nice Bass ! I wonder if the top is Bubinga ? For that price the new owner will be dancing around in circles in celebration !

That's what it looks like to me Wolf. I just emailed the seller to ask if he had any info on the build or the serial number.

Whoa...is that a (gulp) non-laminate body? I think I like this one better than the '90 Persuader that was also posted today(and that's sayin' something).

I Think they made the Solid Koa Spoilers 'till 1983, I've seen some 83 Spoilers with Mahogany body + top.
