I bought this new from Bass Specialties in Bensalem, PA early last month. It's very comfortable and plays like butter, but I just can't get used to a 5 string bass. The 35" scale is quite nice and I don't even notice it while playing. This bass has never been brought outside my room since purchase; it still has the plastic cover on the control cavity! No scratches, scuffs, or blems. Comes with DR Long Necks and Schaller Straplocks. I'm interested in a Jazz-style bass or perhaps a Stingray. Looking for anything from an American Jazz Standard or Deluxe to a Sadowsky Metro and anything in-between. Cash can flow in whatever direction necessary. Don't hesitate to PM me an offer. Ships in a Lakland gig bag UPS Ground (expedited shipping possible). Double boxed and packed by the UPS Store so insurance is as smooth as possible in the case of damage. Paypal e-check only. I will not mark the payment as a "gift" because one loses liability insurance that way. That said, please shoot me a PM! For whatever reason Lakland used this piece even though it has a knot right by the strap button. I personally don't mind it -- that's what separates a Skyline from a USA model, I suppose -- but I just don't want you to have any surprises.
