    So, it's come time to get rid of my old Squier. I love the thing to death, but I don't really use it, and I could use the money and. The bass is in decent shape, it's got some small chips in the finish on the outer edges, as is to be expected with any odd shaped guitar. It needs a decent setup, and probably a new nut. Also, fair warning, it doesn't balance at all. Neck dive city. But hey, it looks cool, and it's now technically "vintage"...which is cool as well. Here's some pictures.

    The bass has a non original string retainer and one of the bridge saddles was missing when I got it, so it has been replaced with a threaded saddle from my Fender Jaguar Bass. There are also fret inlay stickers, easily removable. The same goes for the mountain dew sticker. It comes with a customized Coffin Case that fits it.
    I'm looking for around $300 (or best offer) and will trade for a 7 string guitar of decent quality. Make me an offer! I can take more detailed pictures if you want, and I'll ship via your choice of shipping company.

    Slight update with things I forgot: The knobs are not original, neither is the jack, however, the pots and pickups are all original.

    Got an offer, still want to see if anyone can trade me for an okay quality 7 string.
    Also, I guess this qualifies as a bump.

    I own one of these. My wife gave me one this past Christmas. It's basically a funky, "V" shaped P-Bass with great tone.

    I didn't realize it was short scale. I'll have to keep my eye out for one now.

    I'm pretty sure it's a 32" scale. Also, it's got a heel end truss rod adjustment. You can find them occasionally. I liked it, but it was time for it to go.
    And it's been immortalized on facebook...thanks to this:
