    Bought this bass because I love the sound and I love the feel. Selling because I play my other basses and this one sits unused. For the most part it really hasn't been played at all. I think I took it to one gig. Other than that it sits on the wall in my house. Thinning the herd this year. Not interested in any trades.

    Comes with the original hard shell case. Both the bass and the case are MINT. No issues at all. Plastic still on the pickguard and the cellophane is still on the back of the bass. The bass weighs 10.10 pounds on my freight scale.

    $1050 shipped. The main difference between this one and a new one is the price.

    Thanks for the reminder. I totally weighed it before posting and forgot to include it. It has been added to the description now.

    I believe Ernie Ball calls it "True Gold".

    Did you get this Sterling from Bass Central? If so, I looked at it daily for about a month before it was sold, never pulled the trigger tho. GLWS!

    Hi guys. I was on tour and just got back yesterday and am catching up now. I did get this bass from Bass Central. I'm not sure of the different pre-amps that are available but this has what is fairly standard to me of V/T/M/B. Nonetheless, it appears that bass has now been sold. I will close the thread once I know the buyer is happy with the purchase. Thanks for the renewed interest in this killer bass.
