Bought this bass a while back and it is not a regular player for me - very cool, obviously has it's fans and detractors... This is the long neck version of the bass, with the special reverse headstock. Gun Metal Grey Neck Is In Awesome Shape Replaced stock PU's with EMGs Black Beauty Strings Silver Skull tone and volume knobs I bought this directly from the bassist from Beyond The Lies, an East Coast Metal band that toured extensively up and down the East Coast - so the bass has it's share of nicks and dings, but nothing affecting play-ability or anything that would make you go It's a really cool bass - the EMG's alone are a HUGE plus. I just would rather see it played and enjoyed. $185 shipped CONUS No case, but those who have bought from me in the past know I pack like a madman. I pack like I would want packed. And then some.
