    I saw that too. The result of that all too human trait that the grass is always greener. I've learned, from experience, that some basses are better left alone. If you want a bass to do a certain something, get one that will. But leave those tried and true designs alone. JMHO

    I'd buy it and try and resurrect it.

    no wonder why is selling it.
  10. I doubt you could ever fully resurrect it with the body edges rounded off like that.

    What would possess someone to slaughter a classic instrument that way?
  11. It can be done.
