This one has been around the block and has a small story that the experts at Kebo’s rectified with 4.5 hours on the work bench..
The Good – This bass is a stunningly good player up and down the neck, sounds as you expect and plays as you demand. Other than changed knobs its all there. Comes with a gig bag. This is a lot of bass for the money. She shows moderate patina and player wear. The 2 bad cosmetic areas are the butt of the bass and the horn edge. See pics. 7.5 pounds of a lot of great playing bass for the money.
The Bad (we fully fixed this) Some luthiers need their hands closed in a vice. The guy who did ‘work’ on this bass in the past was an absolute butcher. Quite frankly he sucked and should be embarrassed. Long story short, he THOUGHT there was a truss rod issue (there wasn’t) and diagnosed the issue as a slipping truss rod anchor (it wasn’t). So this idiot drilled a teeeeeny hole (see photo) in the back of the neck to shoot glue behind the block. There was no issue we found out. We removed the glue and professionally filled the small hole, its thinner than a pickup adjustment screw. BTW, the correct repair for these issues are to ‘window’ the board and reglue. So non-issue here that we cleared up. The truss rod appeared cranked and the nut was stripped. We removed the nut and discovered the rod was not cranked – IT WAS GLUED from the idiotic prior repair. We installed an old stock absolute correct truss rod adjustment nut and the rod works flawless. THERE ARE NO ISSUES, just misdiagnosis buy a moron. We leveled the frets and the neck is laser beam straight. PLAYS INSANE! 7.5 lbs and a GB!
Nice playing bass for short money!
