    bought this bass as a replacement/backup to my boutique instruments when one went into the shop for a new neck to be made. i received it in October 2016

    bass has held up amazingly well. my total investment is $1816.74, after ordering the instrument i replaced the pickups with Aguilar soap bars, and installed dunlop strap locks.

    I just switched back to the original pickups. much happier with them for this particular bass. price is down to $1200 with original pickups.

    nothing else to add. mint condition besides one spot i marked on the body for where i set the neck pickup volume when i want predominantly back pickup sound. mark comes off effortlessly with a little rubbing alcohol which won't damage the finish. i can remove it for you if you wish.

    has freshly installed d'addario stainless strings with maybe 10 minutes of playing on them. weight is on the heavy side, probably 10lbs? not sure, don't own a scale to test it.

    any other questions feel free to ask. this bass has the most stable neck i've ever owned, feels and sounds great. i don't plan on lowering the price to move this.

    thanks for looking, let me know if i missed anything.

    forgot to mention i'm happy to re-install original carvin radium humbuckers and reduce the price to $1200.

    or i'll include them in the original sale price for $20 extra. they're very nice pickups but i found the bridge pickup didn't have enough oomph for me, but in return had very quick and clear articulation. the aguilars in comparison are much more rounded and musical sounding to me, with a much fuller low end.

    also the new d'addario strings are getting played a bit every day, so they've got more than 10 minutes on them as of now..

    thanks all.

    also can include a carvin hardshell case instead of gigbag photograpged. hard case is used in 100% working order, but is about 10 years old.

    same price as gigbag since it makes shipping easier.

    original carvin Radium Humbuckers re-installed, aguilar DCB pickups for sale seperately.

    probably keeping this bass - it's such a fine instrument. too good to be "just a backup"
