Professional musician moving out and I have to sell my dear bass I used this bass mainly for practice and it was always well protected, rarely outside of my apartment as I was provided basses when I toured or played in concert halls out of state or out of the country. Bass is in MINT condition. This is a great bass for a serious beginner or for a professional bass player. This particular bass that I own is very special. When I bought it I was at Berklee College of Music and the entire Bass Department loved its sound. They couldn't believe it was a Shen bass! Remember that every bass is different even if it's the same model. This one happens to be a great sounding one, with a low action and it's very easy to play. This bass was made in 2004 and it was set up in 2005 by the renowned Mark Karlsen (see sticker on photo). You will notice one small esthetic difference on the back of the neck, you see the natural wood lines that are darker than the neck itself. Apart from that insignificant esthetic element, this bass is a great instrument. I am only selling it because I have to. It's not easy to find a great sounding bass at this price.
