Dean Hillsboro Single w/ EMG Pup and Pre

Purchased this bass earlier in the year. It is in excellent condition outside of done fine scratches along the lower bout where the controls are. Plastic is still on the pickguard.

Bass was recently upgraded with an EMG MMCS pickup and BTS (separate bass and treble) 2-band pre-amp. The pickup and pre-amp and brand new only installed this week.

Nothing wrong with the bass. It plays and now sounds remarkably good for being at a lower price point, stays in tune and intonation is fine. Only issue (if it actually is an issue), is that the battery is not connected to the battery box. Instead, it is under the pickguard. The battery box wires are there and plenty long. This is an easy fix and gives the option of making the EMG system run in 18v. There is also enough room under the guard to hold an additional pot if you wanted to convert it to 3-band EQ.

Factory box, all EMG extra parts and packaging materials, and original pickup and preamp are included.

Asking $225 shipped CONUS. Paypal accepted and I'm open to trades.

Thanks for looking!

I played one of these when they came out. Even 100% stock it's a really good bass at the price point it's in. One of Dean's better inexpensive axes. With these upgrades, should be a winner. GLWTS!

Awesome playing bass, I had one and upgraded to USA pickup and the EQ was actually a 3band and I added the mid pot. Great deal for someone. Bump!

The stock pre is actually wired for a 3-band. All it needs is a mid-pot. Same with the BTS.

Offers welcome.
