Yes, a very nice SA-70 I must say. That red one you referring too was on TM dec 2016 and nice enough but needed a good tidy up.

About 3.5 years ago there was a stunning green SA-70 on TM. Danny got the guy to lower the buy now and then some else snatched it from him...

Sold one of these last year, a mid '60s Teisco EB-200. Short scale, flatwounds, original triangle case, plenty of thump!

Good move. I love the P bass body size and sound, but the neck shape doesn't work for me. J neck on P body should be sweet.
