I've owned this bass for about 6 months, and have gigged it a few times. It's very light weight, and well balanced at 9 pounds. It comes with the standard Sire gig bag. The bass is in excellent condition. There is one small indentation on the top left as maybe seen in third from last pic just below the light reflection. It's really hard to see and hard to capture in a picture. These basses are an amazing value with big tonal variety. From deep and throaty to bright and punchy these are truly versatile instruments. Looks great and balances well. Sounds huge. Paypal accepted shipped CONUS only.
