    I am the second owner. I gigged this bass a half-dozen times and, just as the original owner told me, it really comes close to an original pre-CBS bass - looks, feel, and sound-wise. Also as the original said, the relic work on this one looks the most natural and it won both of us over because of that reason. Some of the relic work on the pick guard wore of from resting a thumb on it. It shows in one of the photos. As the original owner did before, I am also posting the professional shots of this bass. She is a beauty. Comes with all the paperwork, case candy, original case and will ship in the original shipping carton. FYI - These go for well over $4k new.

    Sorry, NO TRADES.

    $3,100.00

    Specs:

    Color: Aged Black
    Weight: 8.9
    Body Wood: 2 Piece Select Alder
    Neck Wood: Tinted Quartersawn Maple
    Neck Shape: '60 Precision Bass Oval 'C'
    Neck Dimensions: .810 1st-.980 12th
    Fingerboard: Rosewood
    Fingerboard Radius: 9.5"
    Width at Nut: 1.75"
    Nut Material: Bone
    Pickups: Custom Shop Hand Wound Single Coil Precision Bass

    ** NOTE: I added BLUE FretFX LED's to the side of the fret board (at the dot positions). They look great (and are quite useful on dark stages), but can be easily removed with no damage caused, whatsoever (the LED array would be destroyed, though).

    By popular demand, some pics of the FretFX LED array. Go to www.fretfx.com to see how the array is installed / removed:

    Ah that makes more sense now, it's just a strip! I thought you pulled the "clay" dots out and replaced them. Thought you were crazy lol.

    No takers out there, eh? It's a weird world we're living in right now, so I suppose it goes with the territory!

    Sadly, my new bass is about to arrive, so this one will be going over to Reverb and eBay shortly.

    Thanks for all the likes, though!
