I'm cleaning house and unfortunately have to let a few awesome pieces go. I bought this bass this new around July and used it as my main bass until November. The fit and finish are great. Recent setup at Harry's Guitars in Raleigh, NC with DR Fat Beams 45-100. This is the easiest playing bass I've ever owned. You will play better on this. The sound is classic jazz all the way. The finish is really cool too, smooth without that sticky clear coat feeling. Mint except for a tiny ding in the headstock that I can't get to show up on film and a little gunk on one fret My GAS list in my profile contains most of the trades I'd be interested in. Extra cash on either side is fine, though at this exact moment I'm trying to add to the bank more than take away so big outlays are unlikely. Let's start this at [DEL]$1200[/DEL] $1150 shipped conus via paypal. Locals get a better deal and a cookie.
