This has only been shortly used in my home - like brand new in all regards. It's an immaculate Epiphone Thunderbird Classic IV-Pro with USA Gibson pups and guts that go for $500 + $100 for the OHSC (street prices). The bass is clearly the 9 ply neck-thru body model, and is the latest and best series yet to be made IMO. I'm keeping a white one for myself...I don't need 2. I'm working on a Warmoth P-Bass build (which needs the funds from the sale of this), and saving for a Sadowsky. The bass weighs in at exactly 9lbs. and is the best vintage burst grained and finished T-Bird I've come across - and you're likely to find! Both bass and case look, smell, and feel brand new, plus it's complete with keys, case candy, and may be registered as new (I've not done so, but can validate the Sweetwater purchase date) - there's still the bags of desiccant in the accessories compartment. I'm selling this for only $450.00 - NO trades. CONUS ONLY to hold down my cost. USPS Money Order preferred. PayPal accepted. Contact: 8one6-8two4-4zero5seven, OR simply PM me. Thanks for your interest.
