    This is a left handed Essex BG 205 which has been never been gigged. Played only in smoke free home studio. Here is the list of the mods, which were done by a pro luthier:

    EMG 40DC - Bridge pup
    EMG 40J - Neck
    Shaller roller bridge
    CustomGrafTech Nut
    18V electronics
    Brand new Elixir Nanoweb strings

    I will also include the original passive pups with the sale

    I am looking for $375. I will include free shipping (USA Lower 48) and a Levy's padded gig bag at that price. The mods alone cost more. Rondo no longer carries this model, so these are hard to come by.

    I almost wish I was an ambidextrous player, because that is a cool looking bass.
