Looking to trade my mint Parker Select Series Fly Artist. This is the high end model, not more commonly found lower end series. I pay $2800 a couple of years ago. It spent most of it life in its case.
Even though I paid $2800, they are going for around $1500 on eBay.
As for trades, I am looking for bass guitars in the $1500 range. I am happy with unmolested vintage basses. I am also interested in modern basses from quality manufacturers. I am not interested in cheap modified basses. Custom basses from luthiers may be considered, but info on the luthier must be readily available. I would also love a German Hofner violin / club bass.
Other non-Bass trades would be mint Ampeg SVT-CL or other all tube bass amps, with you paying the mega shipping. Quality watches will also be considered, but will need more trade value since that market is very soft.
Hit me up, the worst you response that you will get is a polite "no thank you". From the Parker Website: http://www.parkerguitars.com/Fly-Select-Guitar-Models/
