    I had Sadowsky single coils and sadowsky preamp professionally installed on this. $500 worth of upgrades right there. Original electronics are gone.

    Bass is pristine, except for the maple fingerboard 'dirt' that can be cleaned with lemon oil.

    Just feelin out the market: $1150 shipped to conus.

    Bass is ash/maple.

    I don't know, never tried it. But I've heard it's okay, no?

    Nice! I bet that thing roars! Wish I had the fundage for it.

    And....leave the dirt. It keeps the funk.

    I will likely change my mind. I love this bass. And the sadowsky preamp is really unique
