Only repair was to replace the output jack (it was worn out from a lot of use) a couple of years ago. Only change I ever made to the setup was to re-intonate the G string when I recently switched from roundwounds to flatwounds. I will eventually switch back to roundwounds because this bass is really good for slapping and roundwounds work a bit better. But I have enjoyed the thump of the flatwounds.
The bass is a bit heavy (it has an alder body) but it's well-balanced on the strap. The battery lasts a long time. I play at least 1 hour per day and I can get 6 months out of one battery (and that includes leaving it plugged in accidentally overnight a couple of times).
I don't know what these cost today but if you are considering one and the neck looks good and the electronics all work then you should have no reservations. I doubt you'd be able to find a better bass anywhere near the cost of one of these.
