    I picked up this bass project recently, but I don't have the time or money to do it justice.
    The lowdown;
    It has all of the electronics except the neck pickup, the wood is in good shape.
    The truss rods work fine.
    I don't have the original bridge or tuners.
    The second stereo output isn't wired up for some reason.
    The binding needs to be replaced on the body.
    Some extra holes were drilled to put in a Badass.
    The original bridge rout was partially filled in with wood to support the badass.
    The tuner holes may have been widened to fit the replacements.
    It comes with a beat up old case.

    Thats all I can think of for now, feel free to ask questions.
    If you don't want to replace the binding yourself, I can do that before I ship it, but it would cost extra of course.
    I'm asking [DEL]$900[/DEL] $800 shipped in Conus
    Trades? Sure. Try me with anything.
    I really do love;
    Weird amps; Road, Plush, Earth, Kustom
    P-basses, Hollowbodies, bound/block'd jazzes, Wal (like that's going to happen)
    Anything you can throw at me really...

    That would be a great bass to do an oil finish on.

    This would be a perfect project bass for me since I have spares of the missing parts.
    Just shy in gear cash right now. If you still have it next month, I'll be all over it.
