I bought this here a while back,but find the pre way too bright to suit my needs for my bands music. This thing kills with the Bartoloni NTBT pre amp. Also has a push/pull active /passive volume pot,and noiseless pickups.Very quiet electronics. Candy apple red finish is near perfect,as is the neck. Bass could pass for brand new! Can't find a blemish other than some pickguard scratches on it! It is drop dead gorgeous in person. Blew me away when I opened the case upon receiving it. Just restrung with new GHS Bass Boomer Medium Rounds,and added MOP vinyl block inlays. Another good deal I am passing on. $500 shipped Conus in a like new hardshell case,or $475 in a new Fender gig bag. Sorry,but no trades of any sorts will be considered.
