    It in very good condition with only a very few small dinks on the back and one very small dink on the back of the headstock.
    On the top there are 3 area's where the original owner rested his fingers that are shiny (see pics). These area's can only been seen in certain light. No dinks on the top and the fingerboard is clean. Overall an 8 out of ten because of the shiny area's which may be fixable.

    $1300.00 plus shipping. The orginal owner paid around $2500 new because of the top which was a special order not even listed on Rob Allen's site. I paid over $1400 used for it.
    No trades as I'm selling most of my basses and equipment.

    Here's a link to a bunch of pic's. The two very last pics have arrows showing the shiny spots. I also have some hi res pic's available.

    *** Bump ****
    I think my ad may seem a little negative. I just wanted to be up front about the small wear on the bass.
    This is an incredible bass. It has a very deep low end and has a very upright sound. Pictures don't come close to showing the beauty of this bass. I'm only selling it because I selling all my stuff as I'm completely frustrated with keeping a band going.

    More stuff to follow as soon as I get pics including:
    Ken Smith 4 string walnut bolt-on bass
    Roscoe LG3000 amber 4-string fretless
    and possibly a Staumbagh custom 4 string fretted bass
    EA iamp 800
    2 Aguilar GS112 cabs
