    The seller's probably just looking for a lighter Fodera.

    You won't get a lighter one without first stating how much this one weighs, I should think

    Bump for a beauty of a bass. As you can see kerry cares and he's right - bumps should be 24 hours apart....

    There is no such thing as a low offer when you haven't posted a price, you can not ask for people to pm you cash offers without posting a price per TB rules.

    My advice to you is to keep that bass. Selling a fodera with damages will loose you hard earned money. I would send the bass to fodera to fix it prior to selling it. Even local repairmen can do a stunning job on that crack. It looks like the bass took either a nose dive or the thrus rod has been too tight.
    Good luck.

    If you're still keeping it posted for trade with the damage, I would recommend taking some very detailed closeup photos of said damage.
