    This is one of the fairly rare early PRS basses, only made for a few years late '80's early '90s. Famously used by Robbie Shakespeare on all his modern recordings, and often live. They sound huge and clear, and feel great to play with the fairly flat radius fretboard and nice comfortable body shape. They balance very well sitting and on a strap, too. For more information about these basses, scroll to the bottom of this page:


    This one has the Metallic Blue finish, in great shape with only a few tiny dings, I would call the condition overall Very Good +, and I'm quite strict about describing basses. Brazilian rosewood fretboard, moon inlays, solid mahogany body, rock maple neck, and a nice weight at well under 9lbs (4kg). All original except for one pot that I had a tech replace a few years ago, it's a no issues bass set up to play low with Labella flatwound strings. Comes with original hard shell case.

    For more pictures, see here (some of the photos were taken in bright sunlight and show dust and weird reflections- the darker indoor ones show the real condition much better):


    Final price $1290 + shipping, Paypal accepted. Since I have lowered the price I realize this might be interesting to someone in North America, with shipping at around $150 to most addresses.

    Thanks for looking!
