    Thinning the beard as they say! Got this in a trade a while back with the preamp on the way out. Anyway had a ESP/LTD 3 band Laying around and decided to install that instead. Couldn’t really make a comparison to sound as the previous Preamp was almost non existent!
    Outside of the a few knob holes that obviously the previous owner may have use a screwdriver without a fulcrum to pop out. The bass is in really good shape! Pics will show.
    Specs are:
    *9.5 LBS on bathroom Scale*
    • 35" scale
    • 24 medium jumbo frets
    • Zero fret 1 3/4" wide
    • MTD bridge, 3/4" (19mm) spacing
    • One-piece neck w/satin polyester finish
    • Carved Ash body (flame maple top option which it has!)
    • Five controls, volume, blend, plus 3 band EQ TBM
    • MTD exposed pole alnico J and MM pickups
    • Shielded electronics compartment.
    • Strings have little play time on them.
    Will provide a Gigbag for shipping no the best but not the worst either.
    If I missed anything shoot me a PM.

    I own one with a maple neck. MTD necks are some of the most comfortable you'll ever play. These pickups have great versatility of tone and get that nice burp if you want it. Hard to beat for the money, IMO.

    Price drop! If you want a HSC that’s missing a handle but I do have a replacement handle add 60 bucks.
