This bass is the same as when I bought it; I haven't done any modifications to it. There are a few small dings on the body, but they're purely cosmetic and don't affect the ability of the bass to play. None of them are bigger than the edge of a fingernail either. I've got pictures if anyone is interested in seeing them. I've owned this bass for about a year and a half now (or a bit more; no more than two years for sure). This bass is currently retailing for $700. I'm looking to get around $350 or so. I'm going to be moving shortly and I'm looking to make a bit of money to help pick up a few last minute, very needed things. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
