    A friend of a friend bought this bass new and never really played it. It is in nearly new condition.

    The original bridge was made of very soft maple and the strings were sinking into it. The fingerboard needed dressing as well and it sounded lousy because of the junk strings on it. Lady sold it to me for $500.

    I had the fingerboard dressed, installed a new bridge, ebony tailpiece, tailpiece wire and a set of Helicores. I've ended up with a pretty nice bass for little money.

    Tone is quite good and the bass plays nicely with the new set up.

    I used it last night on a trio gig (vibes, drums, bass) and was pleased with it.

    Congratulations! Sounds like both you and the instrument are fortunate to have found each other. Play her in good health.
     
  3. Is 204T the removable neck model?
