04-26-22 In the coming days I will be switching bank accounts for Reverb and it will be necessary to take this down for the transition. Listing this may have been premature and better left for some time down the road. If there is still an interest send me a message and I can re-list it for you.

I have lowered the price to what I feel is the minimum this guitar is worth considering the model, its condition and the fact it is all original which includes original hardshell case and accessories.

I purchased this in 2000 and have taken excellent care of it since. When not being used it was kept in it's case. The short scale makes it a breeze to play (820mm as opposed to standard 863mm). The neck is narrow enough for small hands yet comfortable otherwise. I play guitar and it was easy for me to transition to this bass.  I am not a music store or collector, just a player.

The Black N Gold or Black And Gold (BG, B&G) was a limited series made in the famed Matsumoku factory that spanned only a handful of years. This bass is essentially a CSB-450 with the Black N Gold Finish. I realize there are others out there but be sure to take a close look at the gold hardware on them. The gold hardware on this bass is in excellent shape, no corrosion or pitting. The only real flaws are some bracelet dimples on the bass side of the body next to the pickup. Slight player wear. The pointy bits are in good shape. Frets are in excellent shape. Please see pics.  This may be listed on other platforms. 

Comes with original hardshell case also in excellent condition as well as the original truss allen wrench, saddle allen wrench and key for the case.

Note: If shipping costs me less I will refund the difference. I strongly dislike shipping gouging.
