It's an Electra x-620 Outlaw MPC Bass. I got this of the 'E'. the seller described it as having been painted with a live chicken. :lol: it was also set-up as a lefty. luckily, the paint was just put on top of the poly without any sanding. I used acetone to slowly rub/wipe away the purple paint. I also had to soak/scrape the tuners.

I had to reverse the nut back to normal, and move the strap peg.

it was great to see the beautiful grain come through the purple paint...

I ended up re-selling it, and picking up another X-620 in really nice shape....

I remember you latching on to the purple beast but the "painted with a live chicken" is new. :lol:

Well, I'd say you came out on top with that fix and swap. :up:
