A few of the bridge saddles have worn nickel plating, and a few minor indents on the top. Many years ago I bought 8 of these and had thought I had sold out...until last week when we found this behind a pile of gear.Frets have been dressed and were going to put a fresh round crown on them before it ships. Its been out of the box only to shoot pics but has never been plugged in, zero hours, new in the box.Its an excellent player with a tone that will cover a wide range of Gibson and Fender tones. More than just the rackmount version of the original POD, the POD Pro had much more features including double the number of amp models (32), cabinet models can be changed from front panel, manual mode (instead of presets) is handy for many players as it's the what-you-see-is-what-you-get mode where all the tones are reflected by knob positions. In addition to the 1/4" input and stereo outs of the original Pod, the Pro features a line-level input, an unprocessed output, a TRS stereo effects loop, balanced XLR outputs, two flavors of digital outputs (S/PDIF and AES/EBU), and a digital clock input.This model sold at discount for 39 when last produced a few years ago. The outputs are designed for two modes of operation: live and studio.

Perhaps the best rock bassist of his generation, Flea from the Chili Peppers has authorized this signature model based on his own '61 Fender Jazz Bass down to the faded Shell Pink finish, of which his is thought to be the only original '61 Shell Pink in existence.Cosmetically, youll note a small area where the finish flaked off but theres no deep worming in the area, just light scratches.Additionally, there are a number of small finish chips on the top edge.
