Very clean 12 year old bass. No dings, chips or scratches. Awesome finish! Back of the neck is perfectly smooth. Some tarnish on the bridge, tuners and knobs. Stacked bass/treble knobs are scratchy when adjusting. I think the 4th knob is the “phat circuit” (mid scoop) Like all Soundgear basses I’ve played, the neck on this thing is awesome. Takes a low action set up just fine. I’d really like to trade this for a Carvin MB15 extension cab, or a Crazy8 (+cash from me). Here’s a link to the thread I traded for it in.TRADED - Ibanez SR400 P/J Pics are in the link. Please PM with questions/offers.
