    the good:
    plays great, sounds great, is exactly what you'd expect from a bass of this caliber. looks incredible, I love the matching of the maple fretboard/two tone burst/gold guard. used it on several recordings and one tour, never let me down, ever. throaty precision tone with the ability to roll back and thump too. only replacing it because I recently purchased a Rickenbacker and have lost all interest in Fender basses currently, unless I can land a real nice vintage one.

    the bad:
    some scuffs, some dings. previously owner countersunk the straplock holes into the body, which isn't a problem, if you have straplocks. without straplocks, there is no way to attach a strap currently. it sucks, kind of, but I'll include the straplocks that are on it now.

    includes hardshell case, it may or may not be original?
    price drop to $850 shipped.

    Anything on the back of the neck? Ding wise?

    Also, the OHSC is a tweed case branded G&G.

    ding wise on the back of the neck, no. neck is solid as hell, headstock has a couple tiny run of the mill dings. I'll try to get more pictures soon, this is going to be a busy weekend.

    also, not an original hardshell then, but it sure does have a case! :)

    if it doesn't hurt, you're not playing hard enough :).

    he's correct, not quite a C neck but somewhat close.

    weighs pretty light, I can't say for sure. I'd wager it'd be no more than 9 pounds tops.

    as per the pictures, I'd have to dig up my digital camera, haven't unpacked it since I moved. I'll see what I can do.

    edit:

    found my roommates digicam instead! haha :).

    bottom two are the pictures of the only major cosmetic flaws on the instrument.

    PRICE DROP TO $750 SHIPPED.

    this is a steal! I need a Gibson SG Standard or a single channel vertical input JCM 800 in the very near future, so if you have either of those items for trade, I will add cash on top of this bass toward them. let me know!

    Hey koobler, how did the previous owner get those straplocks to stay in? Are they epoxied in, hammered into an undersized hole? Any ideas? Just trying to get an idea of the restoration work needed to undo that bad foolishness. Can you tell by prying around a little if they'll pop back out? I'm thinking about pulling the trigger here, but need your input on the removal of those bad boys!
