Cosmetic Condition: The top is looking good, with just a few dings, dents and scratches to be found. The back and sides show a bit of edge wear, and a few light scuffs, but overall are holding up very well. The neck shows some light scratches and small dings, but the texturized finish keeps it feeling nice and clean. The headstock has a small amount of edge wear around the crown, and a few small scuffs on the face. This is one funky bass!
