    Gretsch 5123B : $650 shipped CONUS

    Includes a hard case. I think this is the orange GC version. Great condition. Beautiful tone. Medium scale I believe. TV Jones pickups. Can't go wrong with a Gretsch hollowbody! Medium action I'd say.

    SOLD
    Ibanez 1206e : $775 shipped CONUS
    6 string, Nordstrand pickups, 3-band preamp, active/passive switch, mid selector switch. Includes Ibanez premium gig bag, multi-tool, strap-locks & Fender strap with the matching locks attached. Great condition. Amazingly versatile tones. Great low action. Crazy good neck.


    Neither bass has any fret buzz that I've noticed, but I tend to play with a fairly light touch.

    I got laid off and my wife is pregnant...yay! I have a new job now, but a bit of a gap that I'd like to fill rather than pulling money from elsewhere, so I'm trimming the bass collection. I'm absolutely holding onto my newly acquired deluxe Jazz, and I'm really hoping I can keep the Ric too, so these are on the block.

    I'll consider certain trades, but I kinda need to get a decent bit of cash out of this. Primary trade interests : Squier VM Bass VI, EQD Organizer, EQD Arpanoid, Iron Ether Subterranea.

    All prices negotiable, within reason...I know the market sucks right now...and for the past several years. :)

    Pics should hopefully be up tonight.

    Bump. Would be interested in cash + a Squier Bass VI, Kala UBass, Ibanez Mikro, or interesting pedals.

    Overall condition is excellent. No major dents or dings. Plays well. I don't think there's any buckle rash on the back, but I can take a look tonight to confirm. It hasn't been out of the case since the pictures were taken, but getting stuff like that to show up in pictures is hard. There was one tiny mark along the edge of the fretboard, that I think is how it came from the factory rather than a dent; I tried to take a picture of it but couldn't really get it to show. Overall, no significant wear. The bridge still has the foam underneath it.

    The flickr photo album has a bunch of pictures. Made in Korea, I think.

    Bump. Bass is in quite good condition. Nothing big enough to photograph.
