I have gas for a few other things right now and need to put this up. The link to the original post is here http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=515543. It does a good job of describing the upgrades and finish flaw on the back. I will try to get some high quality pics up myself but there is a link to high quality photos in the original post. This is a great fretless bass for the money. Price is $600 shipped. As far as trades go: I would consider Bergantino AE112, AE210, Markbass F1, Shuttle 6.0, or Shuttle combo. +/- cash as needed.
