Long story short (sparing the sob story) L O V E the bass, the craftsmanship, the sound, everything... Traded 2K+ worth of stuff, but need to liquidate for many various reasons. I have 1 DS pickup and this bass has inspired me to hold onto it for a future project...it does sound that great. Willing to take the hit for cash. Check or MO strongly preferred. http://www.talkbass.com/threads/nbd-lecompte-darkstar-p4t4-51-p-style.1125633/#post-16811830 It's not mint, but it's not abused. The headstock is ding free, but there are a few little bumps on the body, mainly around the perimeter (from leaning against an amp on the ground I guess). Nothing egregious, nothing through the paint, typical little dings you'll put on it 1st gig anyway. 9/10 condition. $1550 shipped CONUS. Let's get this done sooner rather than later...I'm growing quite attached to it and would like to do this Band-Aid style.
