Black, 24 frets, volume, blend, bass & treble. I have no idea of the age. made in Korea, player wear, shallow dings on bass and back of neck, but didn't bother me any, YMMV. Very presentable, but far from perfect. Sounds fantastic, but i rely on my B string so much that no matter how much i like a 4 string (and i dig this one) it will be underutilized to the point of being in the way. let's turn it into some cash. $175 shipped - price drop *now entertaining trades for preamps, poweramps, cabs, parts, accessories, wood, other, etc??? sorry about the crappy pics, request any other pics of it you like.
