    Near new. Low playing hours. I can’t find any playing marks. I’ve kept in its bag, for the most part.

    The 2nd Gen is an improvement in playability and feel. The electronics upgrades are fantastic! Stock tuners were replaced with Gotoh GB-350’s. Original headstock bushings were utilized, for perfect fit, no slop or movement. Far and away an improvement in performance and weight reduction. Bass is 8 lbs 13 oz as you see it.

    Comes with a brand new Road Runner gig bag. Currently strung with the stock stainless strings. They sound great! I have the action se very low, with no buzzing. QC @ Sire was spot on for this one!

    I have a 7 pound headless that gets all my play time.

    $600 local pickup or plus shipping cost to your location. You can calculate cost to you, using these specs:
    • Box: 52 X 18 X 8
    • 18 lbs (dont forget insurance!)
    • From zip code 77381

    Is it true that the goto tuners are the lightest out there?
