    Like new condition. All original parts, original box. PRICE REDUCTION - $675 INCLUDES SHIPPING IN CONUS

    I bought this in January 2007. It is pretty cool and has a lot of sounds. I am not a knob turner. I am more plug and play. I have probably played this a total of 10 hours since I bought it. It has been hanging in a wall rack unplayed so it makes no sense to keep it. It is in like new condition.

    Thanks Kevin.

    Everything you see is included (not the bass stand).

    - Line 6 gigbag is pretty nice, seems well made.

    - The pedal looking item is the external power supply. It has xlr and 1/4" out puts. The connection from the bass to the power supply is made with a 1/4" stereo cord.

    - A planet waves 1/4" stereo cord to use the external power supply.

    - The manual, warrenty card, etc. If you bought this new and removed the protective plastic coating from the pickguard, this is what I am selling.

    The bass uses batteries and can just go directly to an amplifier. The external power supply avoids the use of batteries.

    What kind of strings does one use with a variax? I am playing often enough that I a getting tired of buying new bass strings all the time. Could I throw some flat wounds on (to avoid fret wear) and still get all the brightness I like from my jazz type basses?

    I haven't changed strings on the bass, it came with rounds. I suspect the character of the strings would be somewhat reflected in the sounds but I suggest you do more research.

    This was an impulse purchase for me so I didn't research like I normally would. Its a nice bass but I just don't use it.
