    Picked this up from a local TB'er. Bass is in great shape with new Roto 66's & set up with medium action. 34" scale, approx. 8 lbs.

    No issues with bass, I'm just selling off all of my music gear to put money into my photography. Comes with gig bag. $850 firm, plus shipping.

    What was it you weren't digging about the bass? I've been tossing around the idea of one for a little over a year now, buy I can't get hold of a demo model so I've no idea how they sound. What're your thoughts on it?

    That's a great question. Honestly? I'm not sure I can really put my finger on it. It plays great, sounds great, looks great. Sustain for days & the best harmonics you could ask for. But somehow, I'm just not getting the "mojo" that I want. I'm mostly a G&L/Fender/Rickenbacker guy at heart, so maybe that's it?

    Man, that’s beautiful, and a great price. I have the cheaper SL-5, solid red color, and I really wish it had a nice finish like yours.
