    SOLD!


    Yes, that is a crazy cheap price for Key Factor 5-string! While this bass sounds fantastic and plays great with low action, the truss rod is maxed out, so if you use heavy, high-tension strings, it likely won't work for you. Also, there was a thin crack in the rosewood grain from the nut to first fret that was filled with epoxy. I had my luthier inspect it and it wasn't worth re-doing as it's a clean repair (pictures below).

    I'm assuming from the serial number that it's a 2002, but you Factor fans can correct me if I'm wrong. It's got some light scuffs and bumps from normal wear (all pictured below), but no major uglies. Pics show the bass with the old flatwounds, but new strings have been installed (40-120 stainless). A beat up generic case or gig bag will be included.
