    -previous owner sent the bass to England to get a custom fret dot light job done by Sims Custom which cost about $400. Sims Custom website: SimS Custom Shop, LEDs
    -Action is high on this bass and I don't want to mess with truss rods but its almost 1/4" high at the 12 fret.
    -Few nicks and wear marks as shown in pictures but overall good condition.
    -Year: 2007.

    UPDATE: I took bass to luthier and he wasn't able to bring action any lower. I'm not sure what the solution is but bass is still for sale for anyone wanting to take on the project. I've lowered the price to factor this in.


    I'd consider trading for an SVT head

  2. That's extremely gross action. Is the fretboard flat? Shouldn't be any harm in letting off the trusses a half turn to get some relief and lowering the saddles for better action. It may take some settling down.

    That's a hell of a beautiful Ric. Did the luthier try carving the nut? That's probably the issue with the action and also the bridge.
