    I need a home recording setup so I'm selling some things to help fund it. Up first is a Kawai FIIB with mahogany body and flame maple top and back. Specifics on this model can be found here:

    http://www.kawaius-tsd.com/pages/kawai_bass.html

    Bass is in very good condition for its age but there are some cracks in the clear coat around the input jack. Includes a HSC.

    Price $650 shipped CONUS firm ($600 shipped CONUS for the bass only).

    I'll try to get some pics of the input jack tonight.

    I would be willing to do $600 shipped for the bass alone without the case.

    Around 9 pounds I'd guess. I have no scales at home with which to weigh it.

    Some light wear on the frets. Action is adjustable.

    I have one of these. Incredible basses! Nice Price as well! These have separate preamps for each pickup, and were more like "Mini-Alembics" than Alembic Clones IMHO.

    Okay well the deal didn't pan out but it did make me realize what a GREAT looking, sounding and playing bass this is so I've decided to keep it. These things don't come up that often after all.

    Thanks everyone for your interest.
