    So, in a frenzy to find THE bass, I picked up two really nice gems here on TB...



    The first; an EBMM SUB 4 in glorious white with a darkened rosewood neck... Great condition. There are a couple dings and scratches in it, including a couple on the headstock, one in the neck pocket, and a ding near the rear strap button. Here's the original ad:

    Next; a '53 Fender Precision Sting bass with a non-Sting neck (which means no sig on the 12th fret) and a Seymour Duncan SCPB-1 pickup. 250k pots (small size - no routing), upgraded wiring and electronics. Body has a few small marks below the bridge and faint swirls and scratches on back. 8/10 or better. Neck is very nice. Light fret wear. 9/10. Wearing new Fender flats. Again, here is the original ad:

    I've since played both basses only once or twice and they sound terrific, but there's just too many similar basses in my collection to justify these duplicates.



    So, I'm selling both basses for the same price as listed before:

    $500 shipped for the EBMM SUB 4

    $550 shipped for the '53 Precision -- ON HOLD --

    I'd really like a local sale on either/both of these basses



    Trades? Yes, I am open to trades... but the list is semi-limited:

    Aguilar +/- cash

    Lakland +/- cash

    Gibson, Gretsch or Fender six-string guitars +/- cash



    Oh, i'm not in a big hurry... Don't need the money, there's still plenty of space in my house, and the wife is not yelling at me to thin the herd. So, there's no need to PM me with crazy lo-ball offers.

    The Sting bass is on hold pending funds... The SUB is still available.

    Thank you to everyone for your interest - and your offers.

    Ok, so I played the SUB last night and it sounded phenomenal... Therefore, I'm gonna hold it save for a trade for a Lakland Skyline Glaub, Osborn, or DJ...

    Thanks!

    Giving this a bump as a shipment is coming my way... The Sting Bass is still on hold, but the white SUB is available. Mostly for sale, but I would love to make a local deal.

    Bump... To answer a question or two - the SUB weighs about 10lbs on my stupid Euro scale (it reads 4.6 Kilos). This is not a lightweight by any stretch...

    Still open for some trades, and of course a local sale is much preferred.

    The Sting P Bass is gone.

    Welcome to TalkBass, Weigelt. The price has been posted in the original post (OP) above. Please feel free to discuss any other pricing options in a personal message (PM). It's not very good etiquette to discuss pricing here in the classifieds.

    Thank you.

    Giving this a bump as something has come up that I'm really interested in... Make an offer on this beautiful Made in the USofA Musicman SUB bass. Worst I can say is no...
