    Hello I recently took a bass in on trade to settle on money owed at my studio. I've since used it on a few projects and it sounds killer. It has a few cosmetic issues. All of which are very small, and don't effect the playability of the bass. It has a little rash from a wall hanger on the sides of the headstock, and a few little dings along the edges. It is missing the truss rod cover, but you can order one on Rick's website. There is a small fretboard ding at the 18th fret. Now for the good stuff! The 18v preamp on this thing is amazing! It has a newer set of the Tomastik nylon core strings and a fresh setup. The bass balances extremely well and is very light. It was built in 2001. It sells new for $2699.. I would like to see $1300 to cover the debt owed. Please pm me with offers. I can only upload 3 pics so if you need anymore let me know. Thanks.

    Wow, what a deal here folks. It kills me to bump this as it devalues mine. Someone is going to get an awesome bass at an even more awesome price. Surprised this is still here.

    Does this have an oil finish? Doesn't look like gloss in the pics.

    No not a gloss finish.. If anything it might have a light satin finish. You can feel the grain of the wood if you rub your fingers over the body. Thanks for the bump!

    It came with a fender gig bag.. I do have a GC hard case that does fit it, but I would have to take off the strap mount so it fits. I would do the case for an extra $30. It would be worth it for shipping in the cold weather..

    I am so sorry to those who have pm'd me. The app on my phone isn't letting me get the messages. Rick.C was the first to respond with an offer.
