    I picked this up about 3-4 months ago from the Atlanta Bass Gallery. It's in the same shape as when I bought it with no nicks, gouges, etc with the exception of an added mint pickguard and screw holes for the installed pickup cover (purchased from Sadowsky complete with custom clear pickup cover risers). The original white pickguard is also included, so if you don't want the mint guard, or the pickup cover, you can take it back to the original and no one will be the wiser.

    It's been set up with flats since I bought it--the bass is currently wearing D'Addario Chromes. It weighs about 9.5-10 lbs on my bathroom scale wearing the pickup cover. The BassMute has been removed, and there is no indication that it was ever there.

    I don't think there are many of these floating around in Sonic Blue--especially on the used market.

    I'm looking for $1800/shipped US. I do take Paypal, too, but I'd need to split the fees.

    Bass has been traded to the guy with a G&L L-2500 and a handful of cash.
