I sure wish there was a way to make this long story short. I'll try Around Christmas I sold a Fender bass in ash to a great TB'r in Delaware I believe. When it arrived, it was damaged. I refunded the fellow his money and pursued a refund from UPS. Here's the story, which also shows how I resold the bass after getting it back from UPS. http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/maybe-sale-fender-speical-edition-ash-damaged-1055243/ After getting it back, I sold it once again showing pics of the damage and the buyer and I agreed that I would ship it in two pieces which I did. The body ended up in Minnesota where it was shipped and the usps website showed the neck in Rhode Island, nowhere where it was supposed to be and it indicated that a the package was in fact undeliverable. By chance I clicked on this thread in the feedback forum which I seldom if ever go to. The rest of the story is there. Thanks again dinkbass! http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f220/please-help-find-rightful-owner-p-bass-neck-1057171/ It got back to Texas earlier this week all safe and sound, and according to the above thread in a box that guarantees that the neck will make any body sound fantastic, and also appears to be the best box for metal if that matters. In any event, I'm selling the neck once again. Pics are in the first thread listed above. It's a lovely precision neck with tuners, MIM, Fender Special Edition, with an anniversary badge on it. Great neck. I'm asking $150 shipped to the lower 48. I wil attempt to exorcise any remaining demons I can find that do not add to the already super mojo this neck has. It is quite well travelled, but is not road worn in any manner. Paypal preferred, and trust me, it will be glued, taped, and cemented before it leaves the house again. God help me, but I love this forum .
