This is a new/mint bass, right?

    It means there was some imperfection it could be the finish didn't go one correctly? usually it's something so minor you would never notice it I would check with them to see what the deal is? and if it has any type of warranty or if it is eligible for return.

    Looking through the pictures I see a small scratch...and the body has a several inch crack. No thanks, I'll go up $100 to get new.

    Yeah, but you said the regular price is 200-250 more. Not $100. Is the crack structural or only cosmetic?

    It's up to you, of course. But B stock, returns, demos, New Old Stock, etc are all common sale models which can often be a good deal.

    All I saw was a scratch. Looks like a good deal to me.

    The last picture states that it's a scratch. It looks like it's only the finish to. If you want a good deal on good bass I'd go for it.

    I bought a B-Stock Kala U-Bass SUB Solidbody from an eBay vendor. Although they clearly stated it was a b-stock and they specifically noted where I was supposed to see a problem, I personally could find no trace of an imperfection.

    its going to get scratched eventually anyway.

    Just consider it starter relicing. Or free mojo!

    There's no crack in that bass. Though I'd like to crack the head of the guy who put those crazy, irritating watermarks all over those photographs.

    Ah, I see. No idea what that is. But I can't imagine how a body would crack like that. Weird.

    Yeah. Has me kinda worried. I'm getting this bass, but it's out of stock for a month/$200 more, so I've been trying to shop used.
