I recently picked up this bass from TomF and even though I would love to keep it reality is setting in and I really can't play bass anymore due to my hand issues. I will offer this bass up for the same that I paid for it as well as include a Brand New Tortoiseshell Bongo HH pickguard that I just bought for it and never installed.
From TomF's original add
This bass has lived well over the years - there is some genuine player wear, all described below. All of the damage is cosmetic and didn't take away from the playability for me, but please read ahead for all the details in the interest of full disclosure.
Sapphire Black, Abalone Pickguard, HH configuration
8.8 lbs on my bathroom scale - not heavy at all
MM hardshell case with some cosmetic wear (visible in the picture) - structurally sound
Bass is strung with a relatively fresh set of slinkies, and I'll throw in another unopened pack.
Strap butons are non-original. THe appear to be black EBMM strap locks, but only the button end.
I bought the bass knowing there were cosmetic issues. They never bothered me. The main spots are:
Below the bridge where there is a gouge into the wood, and another paint chip
Back of the neck around the 2nd fret, where there is a missing paint chip. You can feel it when you play but it wasn't a big deal to me. If that sort of thing bothers you it could definitely be touched up, but the neck finish is thin enough that it didn't slow me down.
Typical Bongo headstock damage on the tip
There are some other dings and dents and scratches, but nothing I was able to photograph $750 Shipped to lower 48 states
