This has been dropping in price steadily for the last few days. A motivated seller?

It was strung right handed at one time. Saddles are still intonated righty. The nut is the width of the compensation nut but that's not the compensation nut.

Regardless, thats a steal of a deal... Congrats Jules1.

Yes, the seller says that the original nut broke so it got replaced with a new bone nut... it's a 2001 and the nut doesn't look different than the one on the 97' that I was borrowed by me from a friend :o

On behalf of the seller the Bass only had one owner who played lefty (a friend of him) ... maybe the saddles are just set up not good :) ?! Or is that Bass a well known Bass that comes and disappears regularly ? :shock:

The only thing that could be here is that the seller (who plays righty) has tried it... :?

Impressive! (In 1998 I paid $800 for that exact same model... without case.)
