Hey Guys! I just bought this bass in the last quarter of last year, but I've decided to re-sell it. I can't get used to the neck profile, so there's no point in having such a great bass just sit in my closet. I'm not sure of the production year, but it's got the current-model electronics and appointments. I think I'm the second owner, because this thing is in mint shape, as far as I can see. I take really good care of my basses, and this thing looks new. The neck straightness is beautiful, and everything works and sounds as smoothly as it should. The new Carvin preamp is a MONSTER! It's so cliche to say, but you really can get a ton of tones from this bass, from mellow to biting in your face. I'm not sure if the pickups are the soapbars or J99A's, but they do it all with ease. I was told that this is an Anniversary model, but I can't see the walnut strip, as the blackbursted edge covers any of that up. Regardless, it sounds freakishly hot. I've set it up well, and put Elixir strings on. This thing is built like a TANK...the new LB-75's take steroids now! Here's the pics: http://s1324.beta.photobucket.com/user/ben_bond1/library/ (I can take more, if you wish) Alder body with quilted maple top, rounded body edges, in Blueburst color 5-piece maple/walnut neck with asymetrical contour and clear satin finish Ebony fretboard w/ pearl dot inlays (24 frets) Soapbar, single-coil, or humbucker pickups (non-radiused) 18-volt, 3-band eq w/ optional Piezo control and bridge (string-thru) Dunlop Straploks Elixir strings Black hardware Original hardshell case I've barely played this instrument...only in my apartment, not even at a rehearsal. I'm asking $800, since it's in damned-near new shape, and it's got a pretty much new set of Elixirs ready to roar. The bass will be more than secure in it's case, and with the shipping box that I still have. Since Paypal is getting ridiculous, I only take USPS money orders and cashier's checks anymore. Personal checks just take too long to clear. I won't ship outside of the U.S. (Alaska and Hawaii will have costlier shipping). If you live around Pittsburgh, PA, then maybe we can arrange a local pickup. Thanks for looking, and happy jamming!!
