I just bought this from Jesse about mid May. I liked it so much that I bought a 6 string from him about 3 weeks later. I have decided to keep the 6 string, so this one will go up for sale. If you would like to see the old Ebay add and read Jesse's description, the Item number is: 140233302235. With shipping I paid 725. I will sell it for 675. shipped. The bass looks and sounds great. I currently have it strung as a C-E, but I have the B string and will include it with the bass. If you have never played or owned one of these, there is an exhaustive Megathread that has a wealth of very important hints- and many helpful players as a support team. You will need: 1. a case ( I purchased mine for 45.00. You will find links for retailers on the Megathread. 2. A preamp, I used a Prosonus Blue Tube, but there are several others out there; (Fdeck, Fishman, etc) that's about it- the stand is included- it works well enough, I had no problems gigging with it. Please PM me , or write me at [email protected] for more info.
