    I don't think I've seen a bass so scuffed, and priced pretty high, ever. With the amount of marks on this bass, and the amount of wear, I think it should at least be drooped a couple hundred dollars. But then again, it's a GC auction, so, what are you gonna do :rollno: :scowl: .

    It doesn't look bad at all to me. I've seen many basses scuffed more than that. I think it is in great shape, and most of those little scuffs could be buffed out.

    I'd consider that bass to be in pretty good shape. My old SR400 is much more scuffed than that from 4 years of playing.
     
  4. where are the scratches?

    EDIT: i just saw the headstock and the fretboard...still doesn't look horrible, just used.

    Saw it in person, played it, it rocks. The headstock is the worst and in reality is not that bad.

    That bass is in fine condition, looks the same as about any bass that has been gigged.

    That's different from just playing in your bedroom, I guess. :rolleyes:

    Obviously someone liked that bass enough to play it a lot. I think that's a good thing!

    Ummm....wha?
     
  14. You want scuffin'? Here's scuffin'! He's kind enough to point "black lacquer finish is weather cracked and chipped in some areas (see photo)." :eyebrow:

    Thanks, I might not of noticed.
     
  15. Er... is this guy joking?

    That's no damage...
     
  16. I didn't mean that this was the most damaged bass I've ever seen, remember the kid who hackes his Squier apart with a sawzall??? I just meant this is one of the most scuffed higher end instruments I (personally, as in myself) have seen.

    Most of my players have that kind of surface scratching. As others have said, it is pretty easy to buff stuff like that out.

    That Stingray is a bit broken in.
