Well i bought this when it came out i'm not sure how many months ago exactly i wanna say like 4 or 5 now. But I really don't need a bass this high quality especially for my skill level. I'm not that great and for now i'm just gonna get a low model bass. I payed $900+ tax for this baby and it said it was on sale. I've kept it in great condition and i put a set of elixir strings on it (i also kept the original set of strings) It comes with a hard case, keys to case, wiping cloth, original strings, and the bass of course. I'd like to get at least $800 out of it but since it was on sale when i bought it the original sticker price was $1100. It seems the pictuers i took are to large of format for the forum so if you want some multi angle pictures just give me your email address.
