Well, after you all failed to step in and buy this bass on Reverb, I had to. Finally got my paws on it today after a holiday-related delay. I was not disappointed. I got an amazing deal on this bass. Its condition is far better than its seller had advertised. The bass needs a cleanup, but already I can tell its quality is really high. Despite having been shipped across the country (and still cold to the touch), there is no fret buzz. What's more, the neck is just beautiful. This is my first EBMM. I can see already it has the potential to become my primary bass.
