I've moved through a few of these Kramer aluminum neck basses over the last couple years.  They are really cool pieces.  I think they're under valued.  They always sound awesome and are well made too.

This XL sounds super fat.  The DiMarzio pickups kick some butt.  It plays great.  Frets are in good shape.  There is some wear here and there, see pics for detail.  It came in with a gig bag that doesn't fit the bass.  I'll use that as some packing material and double box the bass for shipping.
