This bass is in very good condition and has undergone a full in-store professional inspection and setup from the builder himself. The neck is nice and straight, fits comfortably in the hand and exhibits only gentle fretwear. Cosmetically, there is some evidence of wear and repair - there was a center seam split that has been filled, a bridge reglue that shows some finish scarring, some small dings and superficial gouging to the finish at the back of the body, some delamination to the rosette, some wear to the bass side bridge pin hole, a scuff to the back of the headstock and several small binding imperfections, as well as some cosmetic wear to the hard shell case as can be seen in photos and are all deemed to have no impact to structural integrity.
