Bought this straight from the dealer, according to the serial it was made in 2011 but it came to me like never played.
It came with the original cardboard box from factory, the hard case is like new and the bass looked unplayed. In fact it still had the protective film on the pickguard, I removed it because I was afraid the leftover adhesive would damage the pickguard finish.
It also had the barcode stickers from factory on the back of the bass (which I removed but kept in the case).
I'm trying to thin the herd and I didn't used this bass much so I figured it needs a new home.
Looking to get $1100 firm, shipping CONUS included on the sale.
It's seriously in brand new condition.

Thanks! :)
I made a little mistake on the listing, I added "plus shipping" but actually the $1100 will include shipping.

It's a great bass for the $ specially in the condition this one is, it's like it just came from factory.

Since I've just dumped more money into another bass, I would like to minimize the damage and will have to take a loss on this one so I'm lowering the price to $1000 plus shipping.
For any lower than that I rather just keep it. :)
