    This is the cheapest SB in the classifieds right now and it is the most upgraded features as well. :bassist:

    The Story:

    I just got this bass in a trade but I knew that I was gonna need to move it. I recently moved to Arkansas and although I found a job, I'm not making near what I should be yet because I don't have my counselor's license which will take another 2-3 months to get. On top of that, I'm not actively playing anywhere so there's no sense in having a ton of basses lying around when I could use the cash.

    The Condition:

    The bass is in really good shape. I would say mint or near mint, but I don't like to throw those terms around a lot. It is very clean. No major dings or dents that I can find. No rash anywhere on it. The bass is nice. :)

    The Sound/Playability:

    The bass plays really well and sounds great. If you wanna check out some of the tones this baby will produce check these video's out:
