I bought this BTB a few months ago thinking I would love the 5-string. I actually ended up playing my backup bass more often, because its a 4 string. I just never did adjust to the low B. Guitar is in basically perfect shape, great figuring on the top, bartolini pickups, mono-rail bridge, great sound, great playing. You won't regret it. 500 shipped. Mods, I deleted my old thread.
