OK this bass is MINT... tuning fork neck licensed from Kramer with 2 VERY IMPORTANT improvements: 1) It has a truss rod (not on the Kramer) 2) It has a full wood enclosure on the neck (the kramers had an (often cold) metal strip that ran the neck with 2 wood pieces on each side.) Only reason I am getting rid of it is because I have 2 and they are exactly the same (even the color.) They blew the Korean made X-rays out the door a few years ago (I missed them) but this is the USA (made in NJ) version. There was a huge price difference in the hartke aluminum necked basses between American and Korean also. I don't know what it's worth so I offer a trade feeler. I may decide to sell later but who knows without pricing info. Listening to all offers. Thanks, Joe P.S. I will show pics later showing that I have 2 of these.
