I just got an X630 bass on craigslist for $150.00.
I know a little about it from what's on the internet, but if anyone out there
has one & can elaborate a bit more, it'd be appreciated.

I'd like to know any info. on who made the pups, & what anyone thinks of
the brass nut, as I've never owned another bass with one, & it's advantages/disadvantages?

Any noteable players ever been caught using one?

Any general info./opinions on the X630'd be great.

Also, serial # is 1123012, I assume that's around 1981?

That one was manufactured dec 1981. I prefer the brass nuts as they seem to last forever. I use the fampus Nut Sauce with all mine and never have any issues. I have seen the brass nuts on ebay but not often, if replacement needed would have to get one made. :up:
