    No issues.
    Frets are in decent shape.
    Bass has GHS flats on it.
    I think they've been on for a while.
    Action is nice, but is a bit high for my taste.
    Neck/truss are solid and in great working condition.
    Weight, I'd say in the 10-10.5 range.
    I'll take it to the post office and have it weighed today.

    Thanks. That's actually about average weight for those -- not heavy at all.

    It's very well-balanced and will make a great addition to anyone's collection.
    I really want to put the money into a Jazz bass. My collection is missing one at the moment...

    The obligatory "I have one exactly like that, down to the flats" bump.

    GLWTS. FWIW, when I took my other Sabre (1980 natural finish) to a GTG in Detroit, I got several "on the spot" offers for it. I'll try to point a couple people to this thread.

    That would be great. Really appreciate it.

    It's time to move some pieces.
