Build thread (it's kind of combined with another build in the same thread, sorry...) is located here (starts around post #34): First Build: SC5 Headless
Edit: After looking up the build thread to paste the link I remembered that all (or most) of the picture links were broken when I organized my photobucket account. Sorry about that! Here is a link to all of the pics that went along with this build: http://s509.beta.photobucket.com/use...0Bass/CHD-0001
I'd really like to find a local sale (so the buyer can try it out before making a decision) but I'll consider shipping (Canada and US only). Price is $1200. PayPal is ok.
I also have a local add going so this may get pulled if it sells there first.
Since I built this I should be able to answer any questions that pop up. Feel free to ask and thanks for looking.
For anyone wondering ... yes, this is the same bass that I had listed in the regular ad section. It was in the wrong location as per the CUP. I'm sorry to any of the other builders who may have thought it was unfair that it was posted there. It was an honest mistake that has now been fixed.
I was really hoping for a local sale so the buyer would have a chance to go over it in person. I'm just nervous that the buyer has a preconceived picture of what the bass is like and it won't meet his expectations.
That's just me being me. I worry about things like that. It should be in his hands early next week. If I get any feedback ill post it here. If its good, then yes, it will be a great feeling.
