Recently purchased this bass on Reverb. Nice instrument, very good condition. With new D'Addario strings. I'm not sure of the manufacture year, but may be an older model. I had to replace the plastic battery retainer plate, on bottom of the bass. NS Designs sent me the new part free of charge. Comes with bags for both stand and bass. Electronics work fine. I decided it's just not for me. Will consider reasonable cash offers, no trades. Shipping to Continental USA only. Paypal preferred.
