1980 Yamaha PulserBass600 Precision Bass Schaller (Made in Japan)
Reverb.com described the Yamaha Pulser Bass series in an article about "Hidden Bass Gems of the 80's and 90's":
"Produced in the 1980s, the Yamaha Pulser basses were more or less direct clones of a Fender P bass from the 1970s. Many of these basses utilized and ash/maple body and neck combination, equipped with a classically voiced pickup to match the overall vibe of this bass.
The basses were well put together, and current pricing from $450USD to $550USD make these basses well worth the cost to own. The design is fairly standard and won’t really set you apart in a crowd, but for anyone seeking a classic-looking and sounding P bass at a reasonable rate, an older Yamaha Pulser is a good one to consider."
This one is in natural ash finish with a maple neck and weighs 4kg's. Unlike the lower end Pulser models, these have a one-piece neck/fingerboard. This one appears to have a replacement pickguard and upgraded Schaller tuners. Frets have plenty of life left in them and plays nicely.
