I just got this bass 2 weeks ago off evilbay,and decided again, 6 strings is "still" not for me.The bass is in new condition with the hang tags. No issues at all.It was bought by a dealer new and never sold at retail level.I'm not sure about the woods used,but I'm pretty sure the body is mohagany,and the neck is 5 piece using mohogany and what looks like wenge. If anybody knows for sure,please chime in so I can get the right info up.Bartolini pickups and preamp,and factory Elixer strings. This is one of the Prestige series,made in Japan,and not one of the Korean SR models. These sold for around 1000.00 new,I'll take 850.00 shipped.I might be interested in a trade for a quality 34" 5 string like an SR5,or even a nice 4 string along the lines of a 62 reissue Jazz Bass,P-bass,or maybe a 4003 Ric. Who knows.Open to amp trades also.
