Well recently the input jack on this bass was playing up, initially i assumed it was the battery becoming flat, so after purchasing a new battery and replacing it, i am greated to a host of un soldered wires, and loose wires within the electroncis compartment, i am to get a new bass soon, and do not plan on getting this bass rewired or paying for a new input jack, so with some simple work it could be a great bass once more, or to go to someone for a possible summer project to make a new bass from this shadow? well im rambling now, basically i have been offered £200 recently i am happy to take the offer,but i need the money sharpish really, so if anyone wants to match that before the other guy can afford it give me a bell. loads of photos can be sent via emails, firstname.lastname@example.org get in contact via email or feel free to add me on msn. someone needs to take care of her, uk only folks. Thanks Ben.
