I had this bass custom made back in 2010. I used it primarily to play in church, although it did see a couple secular gigs. I have looked it over very carefully, and I can't find a blemish on it anywhere, it looks as good as it did when I got it. My "upgrades" from the stock model were: - Honey burst flamed maple - Flamed maple headstock - Carved top headstock style - Abalone block inlays - Black chrome plated hardware - Dunlop straplocks Strung with Labella tapewound strings. Weights 6 1/2 pounds on the bathroom scale. Neck width 1 9/16" at the nut. Comes with the G&C made Carvin case. Asking [DEL]$850[/DEL] $800 shipped to the lower 48.
