The owner of this bass bought it second hand with the plan to invest in getting it set up and optimised. As long as you know what you’re getting into and make sure you allocate enough budget for the potential work needed, this can be a great way to get a good value instrument.
The instrument needed a fingerboard reshoot, a new adjustable bridge and soundpost, as well as replacement set of wooden pegs for the old style tuning machines (hand made by Joe Vercoe of @redfern.instruments )
