PHYSICAL CONDITION: Very Good. This bass has a Slotted Headstock with no signs of repair. The neck is straight and strong. The back of the neck has a few small nicks in the finish, with one that has worn to be slightly larger yet still smaller than a dime. Two of the knob caps are missing the silver top labels. The cap on the rotary 4-way switch has been replaced. There's some wear to the wood betwen the higher frets, but not nearly enough to be concerned. 

The body also has minor scratches and nicks from normal usage. The back has some buckle rash and wear through the finish near the rear of the upper horn. The tuning pegs, pickups, and bridge show a bit of use but have a nice shine to them. This bass is solid and feels great in your hands. Very comfortable and resonant. Overall, it's in very good condition.

WORKING CONDITION: Very Good- This bass brings together a lovely combination of thunderous strength and bubbly warmth, allowing a killer selection of tones to be attained with minor fuss. Bright, clear growl, round fingerstyle runs, and massive lows all equally convincingly offered, while the electronics operate smoothly and the hardware is on point. Aside from the faintest of buzz on a few high frets, this instrument plays perfectly and sounds incredible.

UNPACKAGED WEIGHT: 15.5 lbs (Guitar w/Case)

UNPACKAGED DIMENSIONS: 47.5" x 16.5" x 5.5"
