6 String TUNE Bass - Asking $700 (negotioable)
I'm looking to sell my TWB63. This plays sounds and feels fantastic, but I have several others now and this one simply doesn't get used as much as it deserves. I want this to go to a good home, and I'm willing to negotiate on the price. Last I checked, retail was $1,600, but I'm not going to ask nearly that as there are some minor cosmetic issues as you'll see from the pictures. I'm asking $700 but I'm willing to negotiate. If you're seriously interested, please send me a PM and we'll see if we can work something out :)
Here is a link to the TUNE website with some specs on the bass. Also, more pictures.
The title says it all.
TB rules state that unless it's an item strictly for trade, you have to list a price.
Nice bass, and awesome user name! :)
Sorry Buskman, my mistake. I'm brand new to this forum. Thanks for the compliments. I'll edit the title.
If you follow the link provided above there is a pretty wild soundclip of a guy slamming on one of these over Giant Steps. I played a TWB-63 and they are very well put together with a beefy feel, comfy neck and an 18mm string pitch at the bridge. These are serious basses.
Edit: I think I was wrong about the other version of this bass. I believe that was a custom that a TBer had built. But I definitely played one of these and it was great, with a powerful grunt to the sound and a lot of exacting detail in the build.
From my research and understanding, there aren't really two versions of this bass, but there are ones made in Korea and ones made in Japan. Tune was originally a Japanese company that went bankrupt around 2002 (I think) and was bought by a Korean company that makes the basses with the same materials and to the exact same specifications. You can tell the two apart by their serial numbers. The Japanese ones are shorter, while the Korean ones are longer and start with the letter S. As you can see from the pictures of the serial number, my bass was made in Korea, however it's exactly the same as the ones made in Japan. List price has hovered around $1,600 for a while now, so I feel like $700 is a pretty fair offer. But like I said, I'm willing to negotiate. Hope this was useful to any of you looking to buy. Again, thanks for looking.
Just a quick bump. Thanks for looking.
