    Hi everybody, i will need to put some of the basses I have been trying to keep but i need to sell to cover my tax bills.
    first is my Roscoe onyx 5 in great condition, Roscoe Century Standard 5 in gorgeous Black Onyx ash body with a maple board and a Maple 3 piece Neck. It is 35" scale and has 18.3mm spacing. Has the Roscoe/Bart 3-band Preamp and Nordstrand Dual Coils. Weighs in at about 9.2 lbs.Plays and sounds awesome, 1,550 Shipped!

    Next its my Rbass Myrtle top, beautiful sounding bass, it has a beautiful flame myrtle top, mahogany body, maple neck, ebony fret board,alder core,nordstrand big singles pickups with rosewood covers, audere 3 band preamp. It weights 9.5 lbs. string spacing is 19 mm but it can be adjusted with the adjustable bridge. It comes with a myrtle ramp that will be included and a gig bag. I am asking $1,950 shipped!!!

    next its my Sadowsky metro m24 5 natural, in excellent condition. Only minor dings and swirls on the back but I could only find one or two. The pickguard was custom made by Sadowsky, I did change the tunning keys because I like these ones better than the original clover shape ones. It weights 9 pounds on my bathroom scale. Comes with the original sadowsky case and paper work.I am asking 2000 shipped!!!!

    And last, The best looking sounding bass I ever owned, Nordstrand 5 string custom made for Adrian Garcia. The top is an amazing piece of camphor burl, ash body, The back is spalted maple, The neck is maple and bubinga, The transition block is redwood and Fingerboard is Pau Ferro, also comes with blue leds on the side of the fingerboard,about 400 upgrade, preamp its aguilar obp3 and nordstrand dual coil pickups. This is an amazing piece of art, in Great condition, only two dings on the side. I am asking 2800 shipped! SOLD!!
    I talked to some one on the nordstrand company and told me that is the only one he has seen from Adrian Garcia in a long time, This bass is very special and hope I could keep it but I just can't at this moment.
