    i bought this a while back in barely playing condition. it was missing bridge adjustment screws, none of the electronics were wired up, the nut was cut horribly from the factory, the black finish on the back of the neck was chipping off. also, youll see in the pictures that the bass had been painted on at some point in its life. the second owner from which i purchased this tried to remove most of it, but some of it is still there. i never bothered trying to remove any more of it.

    since then, i had a new nut made at national resophonic guitars thats spaced correctly, i bought some birchwood casey tru oil and refinished the back of the neck with oil and wax, the bridge saddle screws were replaced, a series wound musicman style replacement pickup was installed (some very minor routing was done to accommodate the pickup ears which the stock pickup doesnt have) and its now in top playing shape. ive been gigging it for maybe 6 months or so, but i in the end i preferred the feel of my atk 5 (the fingerboard radius is rounder).

    the tone of this thing currently is a ballsy nathan watts on stevie's "do i do" type of tone. its got the output of an active bass so you might have to lower the input gain on your amp. playability wise, now that the neck has been refinished, it doesnt feel any different than the stingray 5 thats for sale at the shop where i work.

    400 shipped (no case or bag)

    So since you replaced the pickup, is the active circuit still in use? Or is it a passive replacement?
