    Hi - I am looking for tips on what to look for when shopping for a used bass. I am not a beginner but I am more of a player than a tech. So - what are the main things to look for and to look out for when checking out a used bass in person. Thanks for any tips.

    Check for mechanical problems like loose tuners or rattling bridges. If you can be sure that the truss rod still turns in both directions. If everything sounds and plays ok then chances are you have a good one.
