I bought this bass brand new this summer. It's served me well, and I've played some great gigs with it. I had the pickups modified with adjustable polepeices to equalize string volume. This modification is REVERSIBLE and gives the bass more bottom than normal Rics, which is a great (and necessary, IMO) thing. The bass still has its great traditional sound and chords and such sound great (not muddy like on my fender). The bass comes with the factory SKB case (in excellent shape), all documentation, DiAddario Flatwounds and the original Ric strings. There is a little dimple on the front of the bass, unnoticable unless youre looking for it and unnoticable in pictures. On the back of the bass there is a ding I apparently caused with the Shaller strap locks on my strap. I can send you a picture, its minor. All in all, this bass is in excellent shape. Email for pictures. I'd rather not ship this thing, but perhaps I can be persuaded. It (and I) is located in Brooklyn, NYC. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll accept money order or paypal. Thank you!
