-strings: E & A look to be Innovation Honeys, and the D & G look to be either Innovation Psycho Slaps or Silver Slaps. Either way they’ve got a nice balanced pull to them and even tone across the range
-buckle rash on upper right bout where you’d expect it to be

-edges frayed as expected from wear and tear
-small dent on upper left bout

-plywood top, back, and sides

Come on in and take a look. She’s a honey of a bass with a good tone!
