2005$299wornMy bass is a sr400c that I bought used in 2005 in Canada, I can't find any info about what the c at the end of the model number indicates anywhere (maybe it indicates what country it was sold in, idk). It's a good bass with good sound but needs neck adjustments every 5-7 years, so all in all I'm very happy, except the tuners needed replacing. Bought a cheap set off Amazon and they turned out to be IDENTICAL to the ones I replaced lol. I've played newer models of the sr400 series and noticed the newer body was much thinner, the electronics have been updated to "lesser" sounding components so I would recommend buying the older Sr basses. Mine is a 97 or 98 and is black in color. I wouldn't purchase a higher end sr model new though, but used for sure, as I feel there are some great alternatives in today's new market that would meet or exceed the equivalent Sr model in terms of new price, sound and playability. Still, I would recommend a 90s sr model to any beginner or casual bass player in a heartbeat.
