    Gorgeous, light, full-bodied jazz bass. But I'm wanting something more exotic at the moment... so I'm offering her up!

    Just came back from Pat Wilkins (and LA Bass Exchange) with a shoreline gold refinish and perfect setup. So this bass is "as new." There are some light dings on the tip of the headstock (as shown in pictures). Alder body, rosewood board, the new preamp and JJ pickups by Lakland. Lovely instrument, just not for me.

    I'd love to get back into the right MTD 535, Zon 519, maybe a pretty Lakland 55-94, a Roscoe SKB3005, or a Sadowsky 5 with an exotic top... you get the idea! Killer tone, 5-string bass, pretty top. I'll consider others, but those are the main ones I'm into.

    This is worth $2800 to me, shipped in iGig tweed gigbag. I'd prefer to trade for a cool bass (and will add money as needed), but I'll entertain cash offers too.

    Thanks for all the trade offers. Let me reiterate that I'm looking for an exotic top only, and I'll also now consider 6-strings, too, like a Roscoe SKB3006 and MTD 635, or even an old Yamaha TRB6p (with cash).

    I will definitely put out cash for the right MTD or Sadowsky...

    Thanks... Pat Wilkins is a true artist... maybe that's why everybody hires him to paint their basses :) Plus he's just a super nice cat and a bass player as well...
