Virtually brand new only practiced with at home. Decided to stick with 5 strings so my loss your gain! This is an amazing bass for the money. The body is tobacco burst swamp ash with rounded sides for added comfort. It has a maple neck w/ 2 walnut stripes and a tung oil finish and an ebony fretboard. The pickups are the Carvin HB bridge with coil switch and the H50S neck pickup and 18v active circuitry for unlimited headroom. This bass also has the piezo pickups in each saddle so you can articulate the dynamics of each string. It comes with all the original tools, straplocks, and a Carvin hard shell case. $900 + shipping. Will consider trade for an equivilant 5 string.
