    A word of caution. "That Neck is a Nightmare waiting to happen" !

    Keep looking, but not at that Bass. $3,600 might be enough to repair that Bass properly and professionally. I would not want that Bass for free, but that's just me. It's not because of the make or construction. It is solely the condition the scares me.

    Thanks for the warning Ken, but I'm not considering that bass. I just found the description amusing.

    ".....in good playing condition. There is no sound post. The neck has pulled away from the body about 1/8" and there is some wear where it meets the back...."
