I'm only selling this bass because I'm thinning down the herd as I've just acquired an S2 headed fretless, which suits my taste better than the fretted.

 

This bass was bought new by a friend of mine by Music Store in Köln (paid by his wife : some guys are lucky) on the 2nd of December 2000 (original invoice will be delivered) ! He then asked Christophe LEDUC to put some front dots as there are only side dots.

 

Here is the link to the Status Graphite main specifications http://www.status-graphite.com/status/frames/index_home.html

 

The bass has been fully set up professionally by Christophe LEDUC. It has two new batteries and is fitted with a (now) used set of Elixir nickel plated Nanoweb coating strings (45 - 65 - 80 - 100 - 130tw), which fit the bass to perfection.

 

What you see is what you get !

 

Look at the pictures taken under different angles to see the real condition : almost in new condition with the very few visible light dings photographed, the most important ones being on the headstock (bloody low ceilings). The lower milky line on the headstock photo is a reflection of the case lining.

 

Don't hesitate to ask for more.
