I picked this up used in Portland a few month back when I was visiting there. It is fretted with all solid Mahogany body and comes with a violin size hardshell case. It really is a neat instrument with an upright like sound. I used it on a gig a month ago, after the show everyone was asking all sort of questions and some positive feedback as well. As much as I enjoy the bass, unfortunately, I can't seem to incorporate it into the current project that I am involved in, plus I can certainly use some cash right now. The bass is in excellent condition, overall I would give it a 9/10. I am letting it go for how much I had paid for, $400 no fee payment (ie, Cash, Postal MO, E-Check, etc...) shipped Canada and USA.
