If your looking for a fresh "off the wall" bass, you might wanna skip this one. This thing has been played...hard. Lots of bracelet rash mixed with sweat, a hint of Yager with a side of cymbal collisions and Some mic stand bumps. It's got mojo. The neck is flawless and sounds amazing with the passive fralins. The back lindy didn't quite match the screw hole area so had to buzz off (just the screws area) to fit. The magnets are dead on though.I Bought in 2008?? I know it's beat up but really loved and kept in its case. If you don't mind the finish, your getting a great deal at.... $900 usd delivered in the states.
