This incredible bass was built by famed luthier, and author, Yasuhiko (Yas) Iwanade (Beauty of the Burst, Galaxy of Strats) during his tenure as a Master Builder in the Fender Custom Shop. He spent months painstakingly researching the right materials before creating an extremely accurate limited run of these beauties. His work is impeccable. Great attention to detail. This bass sounds as good as it looks. I've played it with both flat and round wound strings. It is probably the best sounding re-issue bass I have ever come across. It is a very rare find. Instrument is in amazing shape. Two small dings on the back keep it from being mint. Comes with Fender tweed case, all case candy sealed in package, including never installed bridge and pickup covers, and certificate of authenticity, dated Feb. 1992. A very cool, and rare piece.
