    10 days ago, I decided to come back into the bass fold after a little eighteen months without playing. I bought this absolutely MTD 535-24 from http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/mtd-535-24-2012-sale-1051931/ , and it's everything everyone said it could be. There's only one problem: I suck now. This bass is way better than I am, and it's insulting for me to play it :ninja:

    This is way too much bass for me, as much as it pains me to admit. So I need to go back to something simpler. You know, a passive 4-string Jazz, or PJ, something that I'm not going to feel like a fool playing (I don't like that feeling, or I'd obviously not get rid of a bass this awesome)

    So while I sit in the woodshed and try to catch back up to some semblance of knowing what I'm doing, I thought I'd see if there was someone looking to do the opposite. Hit me up with trade offers or questions. I fully reserve the right to "come to my senses." And yes, this is FT ONLY. Though it could be a trade down, for the right bass.

    The trade value is in the low-mid $3k range (3300-3400).

    The bass weighs between 8.6 and 8.8 lbs on my scale.

    I've tried to keep up with offers, but so many people have sent offers completely outside what I wanted that I've had to stop responding to things that aren't at least close to what I requested.
