I picked up this bass a for my Acoustic/Electric project. Sounds and plays great and everybody digs the tone. However, over time I gravitated to my Rob Allen fretless and this guy has become a case queen.
Close to mint condition, still has factory strings and that Ďnew bass smellí. Although in this case itís the smell of a fine acoustic guitar.
The only blemish I can find is a very small depression in the clear on the top. Itís towards the bridge on the treble side. Itís very hard to see it and I couldnít get a photo of it. At first I thought it was just more bear claw in the top, but it isnít.
Bass comes with the Martin hard case and all the case candy, and will ship in the Martin shipping box.
If you are looking at this you probably already know that Martin has discontinued this model and replaced it with something with cheaper woods, a simpler preamp, etc.
Asking $1200 shipped CONUS. PayPal is fine, but I can make other arrangements if needed.
Iím not really looking for trades, but I know folks are going to ask, so I would consider the following as part of a trade deal +/- cash as appropriate:
- Fender MIA or Road Worn Precision Bass, Nash or Lakland P-Bass
- EBMM Sterling
- Lakland Hollowbody
- Gallien Krueger or Eden (USA) amplification
Any bass trades would need to be light, around 9 lbs or less.
