This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2007-11-30)
Price : US $556.98
I bought this bass brand new in maybe 1996? It was $1,200 dollars not including the case. The wood grain is absolutley beautiful. I guess it is maple. The bass has two dimarzio pickups that came stock. It has a Badass II bridge that also came stock. The neckplate reads B.C. Rich BC31357 LA California U.S.A. I always babied this bass to no end It even has the plastic on the back plate (see the picture). One day I noticed the neck was out of adjustment. I took off the truss rod cover the tighten the nut only to find the washer under the nut had broken. The whole thing was a disaster, the truss rod had this little tiny thin nut with a thin washer underneath it. The truss rod is some form of two peice type. The section that runs under the fingerboard went forward, the nut alone would not push it back to relieve the bow. Everybody I took it to said to send it back to the factory. I did. and after writing a bunch of letters they finally sent it back with the neck that is on bass currently. They wrote some letter stating that the company had changed hands and they don't make basses to those specs anymore. But they sent the other neck that fit without too much work. It could potentially still work if someone machined a functional trussrod nut. Anyway the bass sounds incredible. The pickups sound great; they have dimarzio stamped across the end. Auction comes with everything pictured. I reserve the right to end the auction at any time becuase it is for sale locally. Shipping will be $36, sorry no international bidding. Thank you.
