    I'm primarily a guitar player, but have been looking for a bass to use for recording. This one popped up on CL, and I'm pretty psyched.

    It's an '06 NOS model, and seems to have been a case queen. Not much to tell from new.

    I've had it a few weeks, and when I got it, it looked like this:

    I've since changed out the guard and like the look a bit better.

    It's a good player, but needs new strings. I'm thinking about Rotosound PSD Bass 99's - looking for an aggressive/bright sound. Any suggestions would be welcome.

    Super cool bass! I'd say for needed one for recording, and not a primary instrument, you really stepped up.

    If you're looking for an aggressive tone the Rotosound's should do the trick.

    I have several Fender CS basses and really like them. I have never seen one in this particular red that had a matching headstock. Very nice!
