This bass is in good condition and has undergone a full in-store professional inspection and setup. The neck is nice and straight, fits comfortably in the hand and exhibits only gentle fretwear. Cosmetically, there are several dings to the top, fairly superficial buckle rash on the the back of the body at the contour, a larger ding to the edge of the body at the lower bass side and scuffing and aging to the headstock, all of which can be seen in photos. As always, this guitar ships fully insured with signature required.
