    I've moved to Colorado from California, am semi-retiring and have left my band after 7 years. Don't see myself connecting with another band at this point in my life, so sadly there is no longer a need to keep my collection other than being a hoarder. So PLEASE - NO TRADE OFFERS.

    Got this beauty in a trade and knew I'd be moving it along as I normally play 4 string basses. Fun bass to play though as its so light weight. She's had a boo boo that needs explaining, but it's all good now.

    According to Jeff at Buscanti, who traded it to me, the bottom strap button got pushed in when it was delivered to him. He had a professional repair done to it and now it's actually better than new, other than the edge binding that is slightly off. It got matched down there as best it could I suppose. With a strap on, no one will know it's even there.

    After the repair, both strap pins were reinforced with square jack plates, which is ingenious if you think about it. Ain't nothing going to touch this now!. I believe my price reflects the repair, although it's better than new.

    Wait, this thing has the same scale as a Strat guitar? (EDIT: It said 25.5" but the OP has fixed it now)

    That doesn't seem right...

    ETA: OP Updated

    This is killing me. I'm about a year and a half or so from being in a position where I can replace my basses. This would be a serious contender.
