    I received this a few weeks ago in a trade, but it really hasn't grown on me yet. So I'd like to offer it up for trade and see what else is out there. It's in perfect condition (for a factory relic). The action is low and feels great. The intonation is just about perfect, too.

    To start, I'd like to keep this as a SoCal only trade. Been spending way too much money shipping instruments lately. Approximate trade value $2,000.

    What I'm looking for:

    Guild hollowbody basses
    Fender Jazz (American made only)
    Gibson EB's
    Ernie ball MM
    Warwick Thumb BO
    Gibson ES-339 guitar

    Feel free to run other bass/guitars by me as we'll. Would definitely be interested in a 2-for-1 kinda deal. Not interested in amps, though

    Certificate indicates it was built in '07, so I would assume it is 7.25"..... My '59 CS RI is from '08, and is 7.25".

    '67 Guild Starfire? It's a great bass, but I haven't gigged with it in years since I've moved to Hofners. It has mahogany bridge saddles that make it a recording dream. Thump city. PM me for photos, but it's cherry red.

    If you would, PM me your e-mail address. For some reason, I can't seem to attach photos through Talkbass right now. The "manage attachments" button isn't where it normally is.
