    34" scale. I believe that the 00 start to the serial number means 2000.

    That's a stunner. Good luck with the sale!

    If I may, what size are the frets?

    They are thin frets. Probably .08 width, based on my imprecise measuring tools.

    It's an interesting bass.

    Do you know what the string spacing is at the bridge? Is it an adjustable hipshot bridge? If yes, do you know the range of the string spacing?

    Lastly, is the bass capable of VERY low action without buzzing?

    Thank you.

    The string spacing is 19mm at the bridge. The nut is 1.5 inches and, at the last fret (21st), the neck is 2 7/16 inches. The bridge is not string spacing adjustable. The action is nice but could be lower. It suits my less refined playin style.
