It's a mid-range Yamaha five string. I know a guy who has one for sale. Made in Taiwan, not Japan. I've seen the bass before, but due to circumstances of the (possible) sale, I can't plug in and play it before I buy, I'd just be exchanging cash for the bass at his place of employment. It looks nice, but its not like new. It has a bit of wear and tear, but not too bad. I think the worst thing is a strap button being moved 1/2 inch or so, probably due to the screw hole being stripped. He's asking $300 with gig bag, which I think is too high, but are these worth $300 used in less than perfect cosmetic shape? What would you offer under the circumstances described?
