The bass is in excellent condition minus the binding that has come loose.  It's pictured and can easily be fixed by someone who knows what they are doing.  It's not broken or damaged, just loose. These basses retail for over $3500.  Made in USA and includes a deluxe gig bag.

Introduced in 1997, the MB-2 bass combines the warmth of an upright bass with the punch of a solid body, creating it's own unique tone. It is a lightweight hybrid, semi-hollow instrument that is organic in sound and feel. The MB-2 is made with the highest quality materials, featuring hand selected tone woods, minimal finish for optimum resonance, and high quality electronics that feature a discreet signal path for pure unadulterated bass tone in combination with a piezo pickup. Unlike magnetic pickups which primarily sense the metal in the string, a piezo is a vibration sensor, making the sound of the wood itself the dominant factor. This makes for a very dynamic touch sensitive instrument. The La Bella 760n strings feature a steel core with a smooth nylon outer wrapping, which contribute to ease of intonation. In a word, you've never picked up a fretless bass that's this easy to play in tune.
