    Seriously broke right now and need money. Looking to sell this ASAP. Here are the upgrades from a standard TBird

    Spector Tonepump preamp
    EMG 40HZ pickups
    EMG P and J pickups
    Hipshot Supertone bridge in Black
    9V battery
    Concentric volume and tone pot+knobs
    Upgraded input jack
    Wrapped in 3M Carbon Fiber 1080 Anthracite, White, and Black
    Legend of Zelda Sticker


    WHATS WRONG WITH IT
    It is wrapped in vinyl.
    The vinyl itself isnt the problem and it protects the finish, but it is the first time Ive wrapped something so big and intricate, and edges may pop up depending on how rough you treat it.

    This bass needs a set up
    I was unable to fully set it up before I left, so you will have to take it somewhere and the price reflects that.

    Im losing $340+ time and labor on this bass, and it performs as if it were two basses that you could combine any time you want! To get the same sound, you could buy a Spector Rebop 4 for $1600 and a Spector Euro 4 LX for $2000.
    PM me for more details!​

    How does the neck feel with the wrap on it? Ive thought about doing this to an old OLP stingray that I have used as a backup bass. Looks neat!

    The TBird neck is glossy, so the matte is much quicker than the regular neck. No problems playing
