    Gibson Midtown Bass in great condition. Gigged only once. Any marks (nicks, swirls) are so small that you have to search for them. It can get a great woody tone or a T-Bird growl. Neck is straight and truss is smooth.
    It's not getting much playing time right now and I want to invest in some studio time. Includes OHSC (also in excellent condition). $800 shipped conus. Paypal please.

    Features

    * Chambered Mahogany body with solid Maple top and f-holes
    * Mahogany neck with slim, bass profile
    * Bound Rosewood fingerboard with acrylic dot inlays
    * Powerful TB Plus and vintage-style TB Minipickups in the neck and bridge positions
    * Grover™ tuners and Shamrock keys with 20:1 ratio
    * Includes case

    The nut width is 1.6 inches. As far as how chunky it feels, it feels the same as an 80s Les Paul Bass I once had, so I think it's "typical" Gibson chunky. I found it comfortable enough to play, even though, generally, I think any bass without a "Jazz" neck is chunky. I don't know if this answers your question, but it's the best I can do.
