    Team-

    I am entertaining offers for a rare bass that will only appreciate in value. (only 4000 were made)

    Slab bodied lipstick red SB-2 w nasty funky grinding tone.

    vol- 3 way switch- dramatic tone

    She weights right around 9lbs. Tone is very rich in the mids with a buttery low end and snappy treble. Great for slap/finger funk and probably incredible with a pick.

    I love the passive system and ease of use.

    Considerations: power amps (1000 watt plus) really nice cabs, warmoth 5 string or fretless basses (Gecko?) options with money

    I would be willing to trade this AND my Warwick 5 string fretless towards a fretless/amp/speaker combination or something really nice.

    References available- I work closely with some highly regarded tb'ers.

    Only 4000 of that color? Just curious because I own this bass, but older and black.

    Oh, and free bump. I love mine. I would NEVER sell her. :)

    I had a super G&L geek collector tell me that only 4000 were made with the slab body and double jazz pups. I'm just keeping it out there for someone who is looking for a change.... If I had my druthers I would NEVER get rid of a bass, but I have to reinvest gear money as my needs change. (this whole buying houses, cars, investing money, and being a "grown up" thing is really getting me down)
