I bought it new in 2003 for $425. It is in mint condition. It has EMG select pickups with active electronics. It has a detunable bridge which is great for switching in and out of Drop tuning easily. It has a maple body and rosewood fingerboard. I just put new strings on and i wil include another set, as well as a gig bag. THere is nothing wrong with the bass, but if i see an offer that catches my eye, i'll do it. I only want to trade for another bass.
