Great short scale bass that feels more like a guitar than a bass in your hand. Easy playing, surprisingly strong sounding, very cool looking with the right amount of players wear but without significant damage.
Cool patina with paint chips, minor dings and checking throughout. Tarnish and wear on the tailpiece and other pieces of hardware. The shaft to the button on the 3 of the tuning machines are bent, still tunes fine, you could attempt to bend them straight but only at risk of breaking the original kluson deluxe tuners (so I would not). As far as I can see, everything is original on this instrument. It comes in an old 80’s Ibanez X series case with a key that happens to fit like a glove and it comes with a proper era vintage strap.

Cool affordable short scale for guitar and bass players alike!
