Simply put, I've seen some around at rare occasions, but I've never really read any real lowdowns on these models. So, I'd be most thankful for some basic info about the main specs on PB80.

Hence some questions from a noob on these particular bass models:

Are they in nitro finish?

I've read that the bodies might be in one-piece. Is that true, or is it in two-pieces?

What are the differences in hardware (tuners, bridge etc) between these and lower-end number models?

Does the pickups differ any or much from lower-end models?

How is the neck profile? Is it like 50's baseball neck, slimmer 60's Precision profile or maybe something else?

And of course any further info will be most gratifying as well.

Thanks in advance.

Well, I'm pretty sure the few ones I've seen in ads online all had the old 7okai-logo, so I suppose around '79-82 since these got my attention (gorgeous instruments). But I welcome any info on newer ones as well.

I'm mostly interested in info the neckprofiles, since I'm not a huge fan of baseball necks on basses (for some reasons I need slimmer necks on basses than on guitars). Guess my 80's Yamaha BB2000 have spoiled me on that.
