    I recently picked this up here on TB. It had some issues that I was not aware of (that's my fault for not checking everything out when it first arrived). Considering it's age (2003) it is in decent shape BUT I have to mention the following items and let you decide:

    1. (See below update)Truss rod was maxed out and neck had slight forward bow even with strings removed and truss rod nut loose. I removed the neck, installed 3 washers on truss rod and reinstalled. With this and installing lower tension strings (currently has a new set of TI Flats), the neck is just about flat.
    2. One of the tuners had a stripped collar so I replaced all 5 tuners with brand new hipshot ultra lights. I am assuming that the original tuners on these basses are not hipshot USA since I had to widen the tuner holes slightly to fit the new tuners (I am only assuming this because I've experienced this with other basses that had the "licensed" Hipshot tuners and not the USA made).
    3. The original bone nut was either worn or filed to low on the E string so I replaced with a brass nut. Original nut is included.
    4. I replaced the original knobs & pickguard with new ebony knobs and a new black abalone pickguard. Originals are included.
    5. I added a string retainer on the B & E stings.
    6. Weight without strings = 10 LBS

    *****Update: The neck was sent to "Warped Neck" and the forward bow has been addressed. Upon receipt the neck was basically flat (with no strings installed and truss rod loose)*****

    Pictures of the neck after returning from service. (Note: the washers I installed are still on the truss rod. They fit in the hole kind of snug so I do not feel comfortable trying to get them out)

    Awesome Bass! I sent a G&L L-2500 to Warped Neck about 3 years ago. That neck has been Fine ever since.

    I've got a KILLER Gibson T-Bird if you open up to Trades...
