I love this bass, and I hate to sell it, but since I picked up a cheap 5 string I just can't go back to a 4. I might be willing to trade a nice 5 - maybe there's someone in a similar but reverse situation (5 string to 4?). I bought it new in 2000. I would say the condition is a 9/10 - no scratches or dings, but you can see slight surface wear from where my thumb rests on the pickup, etc. I can get you pics if you're interested, just email me.
