I want to start this thread by saying I love this bass. I love the way it feels, sounds and plays. BUT I've been sticking to Fender style instruments for the last 2 years and it isn't getting the playing time it needs live or in the studio. I am open to any four or five strings that are worth as much as this bass. I will not trade down, and I may add cash to the right bass, but it would have to be pretty amazing. My ideal situation would be a straight up trade where whomever I trade with pays to ship there instrument, and I pay to ship this bass.
