    Hey, great bass!
    Can you better define the condition for us?

    well-loved could mean anything from played often to many dings, nicks, etc.

    usually, potential buyers like to have an account of:
    - weight
    - condition highlighting any significant markings
    - truss rod usability -- not an issue here
    - significant modifications
    - fretwear
    - ''bill of health'' - has it undergone any repairs, factory or otherwise?

    Thanks, looking forward to learning more about this one!

    Hi Rumblefisher,

    It does have a number of dings and nicks and one long crack in the lacquer (I am happy to mail the photos to anyone interested in seeing them. I tried to post more pics but it insisted I had a max of 2 ... and they had to be of lower quality than 2mb too!) !

    Also, the frets have seen alot of action so are quite worn down.

    It was sent back to status to repair an annoying battery compartment error but other than that - nothing of any significance has been done.

    Let me reiterate ... i am not trying to pull the wool here... this bass has been played alot. If anyone wants to see anymore pics PM me and I will send them straight over.

    Many thanks

    No implication that you were not being anything but forthright :)
    Just trying to help you make the sale.
