Hey guys, looking for general opinions here on a bass for sale that has been "modified." Its a 2004 christopher hybrid with a 3 or 4 inch hole cut in the upper shoulder on the left hand side if you are facing the bass. The current owner runs a small music shop and studio, and he cut the hole and uses a foam insert to hold a mic for studio recording. The bass has a solid top and play sides and back with light flame. He wants 1500 for the bass and stand. My question is, would guys consider a bass with a mic port / sound hole, and what could be the structural concerns?
