    Soooo after many years of wanting this bass, I finally found a super good deal on one that was in my country. Didn't have to import it or anything. It's the second one I've ever seen here, and I'm extremely happy to have been able to get it :)

    So here it is, my (new to me) Jackson KBX!

    It came with all this duct tape on it. There was some on the lower horn as well, but I'd already removed it before thinking to take pictures.

    It had been on there for almost a decade, you could tell by the crusty way it came off.

    The tape left a ton of goo, it was an easy job to get off thanks to some baby oil (of all things!)[​IMG]

    And here it is all cleaned up! I got rid of the sticker too. Like that band a lot, just don't like stickers on my instruments :)[​IMG]

    There you go!

    That is a sweet bass, I love it. And kudos to the guy that played it with duct tape to keep it pristine for you!

    That's pretty cool, and the tape removal makes it quite clean, good work

    Thanks! I actually want to convert it to a 5 string somehow!

    Thanks, it took a while but I am glad I did it.

    Yeah, there's definitely a happy side to buying a bass with tape all over it :D
