    This is a killer Big Sister bass from B&G guitars, plays and sounds phenomenal with all paperwork, would say the condition of the bass 9 out of 10. I am the second owner of this AWESOME bass and it is in the same condition as when I received it after I purchased it back In March 2017. This bass is awesome but is not getting played so it is time for a new home. The only issues that I can find on this wonderful bass is that below the bridge there are some surface scratches they are light but there and I cannot get them to photograph and when I changed the strings I noticed that the previous strings left the ball end indents in the body but when you have strings on it you can’t see them. The current strings are Dean Markley Blue Steels Medium light 45 -105 which are new and sound great on this beast. The hard-shell case is included and also in great condition along with the case candy that came with it including the COA. The photos show the condition of this instrument. If you have any questions at all or want to make an offer please open up a private conversation with me rather than posting questions/offers here in the thread. Thanks for looking! Shipping is included in the asking price and no trades please making room to walk. PayPal only for payment and I ship in the U.S. (Lower 48) only.

    Here is a video of a B&G Big Sister bass being played the bass in the video is not the one that I am selling but will give you an idea of the great tones that this bass can produce.

    Beautiful bass. What would be wonderful would be if we all had that magical "Change Drummer" button like in that video to carry around with us.

    The solo'ed neck pickup is one of the coolest bass tones I've ever heard.
