    IMG_5613.JPG IMG_5409.JPG IMG_5410.JPG IMG_5411.JPG IMG_5409.JPG IMG_5410.JPG IMG_5411.JPG I've made a difficult decision to let this go. These are the real deal. The specifications are top notch and are clearly above other basses in this price range. Not sure why someone would pay more for the newer models which are still great but not as good IMHO
    The sound is awesome and the action is LOW.

    Thick Bookmatched Flamed Maple top
    Maple fretboard
    Zero Fret
    35" scale
    Bartolini 59J pickups
    Bartolini XTCT-H Preamp
    Hipshot Bridge
    Hipshot Tuners
    24 frets
    Rounded Basswood Body

    There is one blemish on the side of the neck next to the side dot.

    A perfectly balanced bass and definitely not a heavy weight coming in at 9 pounds even

    Hey, tell me about it! The pickups and preamp are $550 in upgrades... and that's before labor charges.
    I've done that upgrade a number of times, by the way, and it's worth every penny. No doubt in my mind that this bass sounds absolutely amazing.
    GLWTS, brother!

    Feel like playing Let's Make a Deal today. There's been some good trade offers but I'm really just looking to sell.

    I'm starting to wonder myself. If I sell a couple other basses then I won't have to sell this one.

    I just sold one just like this and I have to say that I LOVED THAT BASS. It had one issue and that was saying in tune, so I just ended up selling it, but that bass felt and sounded amazing and if it wasn't for that, I would of kept it for sure.

    Interesting, with my Hipshot tuners and Bridge, that's a problem I've never had with mine.

    I had the same hardware, but I don't know why mine started having that problem.
