Been using in passive mode, has issue with electronics, and probably needs new preamp or some soldering. Im pricing accordingly. Will trade for a Bergantino cn212 only. This is one of the best looking Mike Lull's I have ever seen. Quilted maple in an emerald blue color. Graphite reinforced maple neck, which plays so smooth it's insane, very little fret wear. Very light bass, feels 1-2 lbs lighter then my geddy lee jazz. It's about 15 years old or so, so has some cosmetic wear on it, but nothing that affects the play-ability at all! Has some dings on the top of the bass where right forearm rests, can see it in pics. Also the machine heads, pickups, and input jack have a little bit of corrosion on them. This is very hi fi modern tone slappy tone, but still thumps with the pbass pups up front. I had numerous comments by people about the look of the bass, so if you are shy and dont want to draw attention to yourself this isn't the bass for you.
