    Firstly, I absolutely love this bass and I would never normally consider getting rid of this thing, however, I recently have been diagnosed with a little bit of rheumatoid arthritis in my left index finger knuckle (first joint). One of the great features of this bass, the awesome fat P-Bass neck, is putting some strain on me (i have big palms and short fingers).

    So I'm looking for something with a jazz-profile neck...4-stringer, preferably a p-bass style lakland skyline or a Decade.

    Sell price = $800 plus shipping... (Its what I have in it after the Stellartone Tonestyler)


    The build quality on these is really great. Cannot drive that home enough (bone nut!). Specs are as follows:

    Bolt-On Construction
    34" Scale
    Alder Body
    1 Pc. Maple Neck
    42mm Bone Nut
    Thin U Neck Contour
    21 XJ Frets
    Chrome Hardware
    Gotoh Tuners
    Gotoh Bridge
    Basslines SJB-2 (B) / SPB-2 (N) p.u.
    Finish: Distressed Vintage White
    comes with ESP original HSC
    I had a Tonstyler Bass-10 tone pot professionally installed and changed the controls to V B T from VVT. All CTS stuff and I'll throw in all the original parts.

    THIS IS NOT A cheaper LTD Model.... Pure Japanese craftsmanship that has already put several American Fenders to shame...IMO. Strung with Chromes....

    So, Trade Interests:
    Lakland Skyline Decade

    slimer profiled(neck) P-bass style, ie. Duck Dunn

    Run it by me...... Worst I can say is no thank you.

    I would prefer to work out a trade, but if push comes to shove I will consider selling outright. For now, I need to see what's out there for trade. Thanks for the interest.
