The electronics and the frets are in excellent shape. The action on this guy is the way I like - Super low. All original.

Tonally, the bass is deep and crisp. Lots of snap for a great slap tone, and there's plenty of low end.

The bass comes in an Alembic form-fit case.

Sacrifice for $2900

Received the bass about 2 hours ago and (even though I'm at work) couldn't put it down. A truly amazing piece. The photo above doesn't even do it justice.
Cameron, thank you again for the smooth transaction and for the record, I wouldn't hesitate to buy from you again.

Thanks to everyone for you kind comments.
