I bought this here used http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/2013-gibson-les-paul-bass-fs-only-1018487/ Ok at this point, I am willing to take cash plus trade, but no basses, but maybe a programmable driver I would call this a scratch and dent model Besides normal wear and tear, and imperfections, which are far and few, there are 2 noticeable dings, both pictured, the one near the jack, which i'm sure i did somehow and the one on the headstock, which came from me using a tuner crank and i gashed the side, but t sharpie took care of that. Also and its only noticeable when you are at a certain angle, is an oblong finish defect, maybe a few inches long and a 1/2 inch wide. I had the bass for at least a month before i noticed it, in bright light at the right angle. see pic a few posts down none of these imperfections effect the P-bass on steroids like playability and sound, this is just as loud or louder than my bongo active, which is up also Tiny ding here I replaced the original knobs with OEM's Come's with OHSC, and truss rod tool 950 FIRM shipped conus, paypal Edit 5/1/14 I had the bridge posts replaced, but the originals will come with them. Reason i changed them is cause i kept stripping the screw head, so my ocd took over, and i just had them replaced, no biggie, but full disclosure. I've had a few offers, but i really am firm on the price, unless its local pick up.
