Well, the trade thing didnt work out so now its up for sale. Just to recap For sale is my Cort/Elrick Josh Paul 5-string bass. It is in near mint condition. The only flaw is a ding where someone tried to adjust the truss rod with an allen key that was too long (see pic #7). The dirty spots on the back of the headstock are just the residue from the original stickers that hasnt been removed. These are great sounding, great playing, high quality instruments. For a 5-string, its also pretty light (I dont have a scale to get a weight). · 35 Scale · 19mm string spacing at the bridge · 24-fret bolt-on neck · Flame maple top · Bartolini MK1 passive pickups · Batrolini MK1 active preamp with bass/mid/treble boost and cut with a preamp bypass (passive) · Fishman pop-up battery compartment · High quality quick string change bridge I dont have a hard shell case to go with it, but I can include a gig bag. The frets are in good shape. I have the action set pretty low and I dont have any problems with fret buzz. I also just put on a new set of Rotosound Swing 66 SS strings last week. Im asking $500.00 US plus shipping (from Ontario, Canada). Shipping usually falls in the $30-$40 range. PM me if you are interested.
