I buy and sell a decent number of basses locally on Craigslist in search of gems and good deals. I've been burned a time or two not looking closely enough at a bass only to later find out that it has an issue. What are some thing you look for when inspecting a used bass? Here is a quick list of things I'd do to avoid past mistakes: - tune it to check action and neck (lose strings can hide issues) - truss nut - bring a tool, make sure it turns both ways - spread strings to check fret wear - string alignment... is it balanced along length of neck or favoring one side - loose knobs/electronics - cosmetic stuff, obviously - ?what am i missing? I mention Craigslist specifically because, unlike used instruments at a guitar store, I'm usually meeting someone at Walmart or something and giving it a quick 5 minute inspection before making a deal.
