I lucked out (and so can you) with a nice sounding ES-1. Has upgraded bridge w/alum adjusters, new aircraft grade tailpiece wire, Pirastro Obligato's (4 mos. old) w/Gig bag. There are no problems with this bass. Giggable out the chute. Only reason I'm selling it is that I'm moving into a fully-carved Christopher. A new ES-1 is around $1500 shipped. Add the extra's and you'll pay $ 1800. I'm asking $ 1300. Pickup in Los Angeles.
