Description

Description:   All original paint - slightly worn at treble pickup from previous owner; intonation issues at 2nd octave but is an incredible recording bass! I wish they made a 5- or 6-string (8??) string bass.

Original Description:
The factory paint is an off-white and worn in places at the treble pickup. Action is great but has intonation issues and buzzing frets at 2nd octave and above (usually not a problem when going through the right equipment and loud enough volume). This isn't a bass to do Billy Sheehan licks on, however, many a recording engineer has commented on the tone and power this bass puts out being that it's passive. Love those HUGE pole pieces!
Was found in a local music shop in Albany, NY (c. 1996) for $350. Wasn't too sure about the looks, but the sound was awesome! It sounded almost like a Rick 4001. I knew then and there I had a rare buy and my next main axe. Thanks Drome Sound!
