    As you can see from the pics, this bass has been played a few times. It has plenty of real-world wear including dings and scratches. The pickups even have worn grooves in them from the strings touching them. There are warn thumb spots in the top near the neck pickup. The neck finish has wear. The back has some buckle rash. The truss rod cover is missing. The jack may need to be replaced; it seems to work fine with a couple of cords and not well with others. By not working well, I mean that it has some in/out play with some cords, where if it’s pushed all the way in it works fine, but the cord will sort of pull back as the bass is moved around and the sound will cut in and out. I’d recommend replacing the jack. The frets have wear on them as well (see pics) and could use a crown. I will ship it in a brand new gator gig bag. The condition is reflected in the price.

    Cool piece, if I'm not mistaken these were called "bleached blond". The dirty blondes have a lighter burled top. These were a limited run (not sure exactly how many were made).

    You are correct. Bleached blond is what they are called. I have changed the title.
