    Feelin' this out guys..

    You guys know what this: a white, old-style headstock short scale precision bass with a surprisingly thick rosewood fingerboard and BEM neck. When I first received this I truly thought it must've have slipped under the eye of Rondo's QC people because, as I said the BEM is very noticeable, and the fretboard is a very rich brown color.

    I've had the entire bass looked over at Mando Bros. on SI, including having the frets leveled so it can be set up for nice, low action; right now it's medium-low. And it's sporting 15-year old NOS Richard Cocco strings.

    I'd like to get $130 in my pocket for this.

    Update: I apologize for not posting pictures, I'm in the middle of an off-B'way theater run that's eating a lot of time. My first day off of Monday, will post then. If anyone is looking for sounds samples, feel free to google Angie Atkinson and give her most recent album a listen.
