I will not say that this is rare
but I will that when I bought this I was told that you don't see them often and these were/are the top tier of SX basses.
The bass is in good shape. It has normal cosmetic wear from being used but nothing major. Plays great and the birdseye neck is very stable. It's set up with GHS Pressure Wounds and plays like a dream. I'm not a fretless guy at all (for this bass, I want to be). The tuners are the deluxe versions and function really well. Bridge is nice and the pickups sound killer. The pickguard is not attached to the bass at this time. You will need some screws for that. I played it without the guard as I don't like pgs. I slipped the guard over the pickup for the pic.
The SX basses with these appointments and the older style headstocks are going new for over 200 plus shipping.
Price: $199.00 shipped with a cheaper gigbag. $180.00 shipped with gigbag ConUS.
