    Hi TB,

    I am going to start out saying this is my favorite bass. I really love it, but since my other bass is not moving, this is up for sale. Funds are needed for a move/engagement so this reluctantly has to go. I have had it for about 6 weeks and I have not been able to put it down since I got it. I got a great deal, and I want whoever buys it to get the same deal. Absolutely no issues to speak of other than a loose pot that has zero effect on playability. I just never fixed it since it plays wonderfully. The neck is wide but fast and plays like a graphite neck should. I really love this bass, and I know the next owner will be blown away. Cosmetic condition is a solid 9/10. Here are the specs.

    Alder Body
    8.5lbs
    35" scale
    1 7/8" at the nut
    3" at the 24th fret
    Graphite neck (with truss / adjustment rod). Satin finish
    Phenolic fingerboard
    Fully adjustable black ABM bridge
    Black Dunlop strap locks
    Black Gotoh tuners
    EMG MM5CSX pickup in the sweet-spot
    EMG BTS 2-band active EQ (vol/bass/treble) / 18v

    I need $1300 for this bass, and it will come in a hard case. Let me know if you have any questions via PM.

    Love these basses!!!!! They play effortlessly. I don’t understand why resale is always so low on these. They are super high quality.

    I completely agree, it's insane how well it plays.

    String spacing is 19mm and the action can go as low as you want it. I have it set really low at the moment and it plays effortlessly.
