When I got this bass, I was the one who pulled the plastic off of the pickups and control plate. Can't find any dents or dings, plays great, no issues with setup or electronics. I am just simply a Fender Jazz Bass guy so these Ibanez necks feel too thin for me. They are great for guitar players who ocassionally play bass. Ibanez SR400, gloss black, no case but will be packaged well. Will post some pics later today, my camera is at my shop across town. $300.00 plus actual shipping. Cont US only please. Thanks.
