    This one I will truly regret, and I'm hoping I come to my senses before it's too late. I gassed over this bass for a long time, and have had the privilege of enjoying it for the last 18 months each week at church. It's always served me well and is in great condition.

    The bass was setup last year by Mo's Shop and I've added US Hipshot tuners, with a drop D xtender. The lever on the Dtuner hangs loose when detuned, but it functions normally. Not sure if that's normal, but doesn't affect anything.

    The shop I bought it from had tried to repair the headstock paint, which they mentioned had begun to peel. Whatever they did to it was atrocious, so I took it to Pat Wilkins who refinished the headstock, and re-logo'd it. So you get a US logo along with a legit refin on the headstock.

    It will ship in a Lakland hard case as well.

    I'm really not looking for trades. But I'll consider a few things as partial trade credit, like a Nordstrand NP5 pickup, Aguilar Tone Hammer DI, or a 4x10 cabinet if you're local to SoCal. Otherwise, this is a "Dang, I spent too much during Christmas, and now I need cash" sale. Otherwise, this would never leave my possession.

    I'd like $1450, shipped, conus only.
    You get a Pat Wilkins headstock finish, US logo, USA tuners w/detuner, and a 9/10 DPLE-II … you know, with a Darkstar. :bassist:

    Weight is varying between 9.6 and 10.2 pounds on the bathroom scale for those asking. PM's replied. I'll try to post more pics tonight.

    Are the tuners the "lite" style (one attachment screw?)

    Yes, they're the HB6C 3/8" ultralite tuners. I'm working on more pics.

    Full disclosure. I just remembered some of the nuts/washers on the tuning keys are a bit chewed up. I had the wrong size tool when trying to tighten and it kept slipping. Obviously it doesn't affect anything, and is a very cheap fix if you really want, but it's not really noticeable unless you're looking.
