CBNJ --- It's a real shame/bummer that the Squier Bass IV didn't work out for you. I guess that's how it goes when one doesn't get to 'kick the tires' in a retail setting.
I've been eyeing one for a few months now. Looking for a 6-string 30" scale bass to mimic the sounds from a Shergold Marathon 6. I play New Order stuff, so the Squier would be handy for "Blue Monday".
Good luck on the sale --- hope you can find a local buyer, as shipping will be very expensive (either for you or the buyer). If you we're local to L.A., I'd run over and give you a reasonable cash offer.
