    Sort term blowout listing

    One of my all time favorites.
    Composite thin neck and gorgeous fretboard. Neck is similar in feel to a Modulus, but I believe a nicer feeling and looking fretboard. Really low action, Bartolini Electronics and lush fretless tones.
    In exceptionally good condition. Lightweight at 7.8 lbs (bathroom scales). Year, I believe, is a 1997 (# 9703647). No truss rod because it doesn't need it and it was a sturdy neck and they could save weight. This neck won't move no matter what environment or climate. If hasn't moved by now, it never will. Really beautiful wood and finish. Wood is Bubinga top. No rash or dings/scratches on front, back, body sides or headstock. Fretboard shows some wear. One long skinny scrape area on the treble side of the fretboard in the upper registers. It's very narrow. Non issue when playing. I think a luthier could buff down and do a clear coat on the area. Never even thought about it so it wasn't important to me.

    FS: $1400 Firm w/gigbag or $1475 w/Case- price includes shipping Cont. USA. Paypal is fine.

    Thanks Bipslapper. This is an amazing sounding bass. Not sure why it hasn't sold at this great price.
