    I know this bass has been posted here before, but what the heck. It is a nice bass and quite light. (exact weight coming soon). I know I don't have tons of feedback here but I have more on my reverb store and TBH I'm hoping to close that soon because of the fees they charge.

    This is a really nice bass, with some mods that occured before I took possession of it.
    1. It seems to be semi blacked-out. purely aesthetic.
    2. Bartolini pickups where it probably started with delanos but I don't really know.
    3. Bass mods preamp. I don't know what was in it to start with. (18v 3/band)

    It's great sounding bass with a nice wide 19mm string spacing. For me the string spacing is it's best feature but I like the sound ok also. I'm hanging up my gigging hat for the foreseeable future. Maybe in 2021 I'll pick it up again but for now there are other things I want to do.

    It will come with the Maruszczyk gigbag and is strung with TI Jazz rounds. Super low tension on this thing right now.

    The bass is in very good condition. A small ding on the neck, maybe one or two on the body but it's a matte finish over sandblasted style ash so...hard to tell anyway. It's a little neck-dive-y on the knee, less so on a strap. This thing needs a forever home and had it landed in my hands a decade ago I would have gigged the crap out of it.

    34" scale, or 35"? Thanks!

    OK, I would like to trade for an American something P-bass(without the J preferred / 7.25 radius strongly preferred) or AVRI Tele. The end is near, and there are few things I need but I really regret parting with my tele. I haven't owned a P since 1991. HMU
