This is a phenomenal instrument that I'm just not playing. I find myself gravitating to Fenders 4-strings 99% of the time, so this one has (unfortunately) spent plenty of time in it's case.
About the bass:
I am the original owner and purchased the bass from Planet Bass in Maple Grove, MN. It was built in July of 2011. It sounds incredible, plays incredible, and looks like a million bucks.

With the exception of a small ding in the back (see photos), the bass is the same as the day I got it. Edit: While taking pictures of the bass, I noticed what appear to be cracks in the finish. They seem to follow the pattern of the wood. It may just be me being paranoid. They're shown in the photos.
