Around 5 years ago, shortly after receiving my Futura, I traded away my Workingman for an MiJ Jazz Bass copy. Even posted a thread here saying "I've only had the bass for a few hours and already got more out of it than my Workingman, so at least both instruments went to better homes." Being a bassist, I thought it was a smart move.

It wasn't. I have never stopped thinking about how big of a mistake it was. I was, and still am, way more attached to that thing than I thought I was. Here's what you should know:

It's a 1980 model with the serial number 082508, traded in Maryland sometime in 2009. The only real notable feature besides the serial # is the fake George Harrison signature between the pickups, on the treble side. The signature was very faded and possibly totally gone by now.

It's a long shot I know, but if you're out looking, keep me in mind! Five years is a long time for it to be just about anywhere.
