    This one's a workhorse. Great tone, and will take a low setup. It's got wear marks on the edges of the neck and a few dings, but it's not beat up.

    A previous owner fitted it with an Audere pre. HSC (previous owner sure loved stickers...) and original control plate included.

    $800.00 shipped CONUS.

    Mostly looking for a straight sale, but there's no harm in waving trade bait at me, if you like.

    Some folks have PM'd questions:

    I know of no functional issues with electronics, bridge, truss rod, tuners, or anything else.

    Cosmetically, it's got wear on the edges of the neck; see pic, above. My best guess is that a previous owner played it with a ring on. Other than that, the finish is in very good shape.

    Action's set pretty low already, and it plays well. A modest amount of fret wear, but I'm picky about the feel of an instrument and the Sadowsky I play every day has as much as this one. No need for any fretwork, in my view.

    Weight (bathroom scale method) is 9.4 pounds.

    It's a Korean-built Skyline.

    Auderes don't require a route. Battery fits (snug) under the control plate.

    BTW.... THIS IS A STEAL!!!!

    With that grain, that preamp, and at that price, this will be gone fast.
    Sj_bass, you need to steal it now and sell the SUB later.

    that is EXACTLY what I was going to say....

    A JO5 at $800 is a "great deal"...with an Audere? A STEAL.

    oops...too late...someone stole it...congrats "someone"...
