The bass is in excellent condition as evidenced by the photos. Some small scratches on the body, the paint that has passed a little on bridge, and a very slight varnish hitch on the bottom of the neck, but nothing bad at all. No breath, the bass sounds terrific.
To give you an idea of the sound, it's here:
(USA price is $6424 USD which will be, as there are no dealers in Europe, around £7500 GBP with all the extra options and all the customs taxes)*
The bass has been fully set up professionally according to Modulus recommendations with blend pot changed for a Delano as it was noisy (original will be delivered). It has two new batteries and has been fitted with a new set of D'Addario EXL170-6 nickel wound strings (32-130, as recommended by Modulus).
I'm asking 2200£ for it. The price is negotiable and a trade is possible, for an MTD 6 strings mainly, but you can try me with anything else. I can send anywhere in Europe.
See you soon and thank you for reading me.
