    Don't like what Santa brought you for Christmas? Treat yourself to this bad boy.

    I really hate doing this, I love this bass, but I have my eye on something else this will fund so here goes:

    I received this bass in a trade this year and it has been one of my main players. Being almost 23 years old, it has been played and loved and has the scars and mojo to prove it. I took plenty of pics to try and show the nicks and buckle rash.

    Quilted maple top
    Carbon fiber thin neck (no truss rod, but action is great and fast)
    17mm string spacing
    1.982 in. nut width
    Bart Quads and OBP-3
    8.5-9 lbs on bathroom scale

    Link to original thread

    The way this bass plays and sounds it's a steal at $1735.00 paypaled and shipped CONUS in a Freedom case!

    Now open to trades + Cash. Could use a class D amp here is a short list of what I'm looking for in order of preference:

    Glockenklang Blue Soul (straight up trade)
    GK MB Fusion
    GB 9.2
    Epifani Piccolo 600
    GB 9.0
    Tonehammer 350 or 500
    And maybe a Streamliner


    Now for the fun:

    This really is a smokin' deal for a great axe. If I had the dough, I'd buy it and have two Q6's :)

    Man, you're killing me with this! Nice bass! And within an hour of my home...

    If this is available for longer than a few weeks (which I doubt it will be!), I may be interested. I've thought recently about rejoining the Modulus club.

    I have to ask--interested in any trades? I don't see anything saying you're anti-trade : )

    Anyway, GLWTS, and enjoy a free bump to the top!

    Thanks!

    Not looking for trades right now. This is up to fund another gas purchase.

    Thanks for all of the bumps and kind words everyone.


    :cool:

    Fantastic bass! Wish I had the bass funds. In the meantime, best of luck with the sale. One TB'er will be a happy recipient of this bass.

    This was my old bass and its an amazing player. Traded it to Jerry because I moved to fretless 6 primarily. Whoever picks this up will be a very happy camper and Jerry is one of TBs best guys to deal with.



    Best of luck with the sale Jerry. GAS is a horrible thing to have sometimes lol

    It looks like a very similar neck profile to my Q6. I like them like this. They got chunkier later on and for my taste lost some of the playability.

    Already got one, otherwise I'd be hittin' you up!

    Somebody out there is going to be very happy.

    Lots of action but still here. Thanks for all of the tempting trade offers but I'm looking for a sale. That's the reason for the beyond temptation price

    Happy new your everyone!

    I cannot believe this is here. Killer price on a great bass and even better seller

    The Bart pickups and Aggie preamp upgrade to this bass is a perfect match.

    I played a lot of 6's for awhile, these were the best overall for me.
    I sold mine to Danny in Reno some years back, I think he got the better deal certainly.

    JEBMD...., You've been holding out on me man, I just played a fiver just like this at Guitar Center in Rockville over the holidays. Wish I could get this to do my young Oteil Burbridge impression. Bump for a monster bass.
