    Well, not exactly.:D I'm gonna let a couple of these go. It's up to TB which ones do. If you have any questions, concerns or would like specific photos of these instruments, PM me and I will get back with you in a timely manner.


    Hamer Chaparral 12 string (Korea)
    Body: Mahogany
    Neck: Maple
    Fingerboard: Rosewood
    Scale length: 34"
    Neck Pickup: EMG DC35
    Bridge Pickup: EMG-X DC35
    Preamp: EMG BTS (Vol, Pan, Bass, Treble)
    Chrome hardware including Schaller strap locks
    Weight is approx. 9lbs.

    Overall the bass is in good condition with a couple of exceptions. There are a couple finish cracks under one of the knobs (see pics) and the nut cracked, but has been repaired. It's currently strung with a fresh set of D'Addario Nickels. It will be shipped in the original hard shell case.
    Asking $650.00 shipped in the Contl. U.S. Thanks.

    Roscoe LG 3005
    Body: Figured maple top with a spanish cedar back
    Neck: Maple/spalted purple heart
    Scale length: 35"
    Fingerboard: Spalted purple heart fingerboard
    Black Hipshot hardware (tuners, bridge)
    Schaller straplocks
    Preamp: Nordstrand 3B-4a
    3 band bass preamp with volume/volume stack, tone (pull passive), mid (pull frequency switch), and treble/bass stack
    Pickups: Roscoe Barts (Bartolini)
    Red Sims LED side dots and 12th fret inlay
    Weight: 9lbs.

    Overall, it is good shape. The neck has some mojo in the money position. There is a small ding on the back of the body, a small one on the front and some surface scratches in the 'pop' area next to/below the fingerboard. It will ship in a hybrid hard shell case.
    Asking $2400.00 TRADE PENDING shipped in the Contl. U.S. Thanks.


    1975 Fender Precision
    Neckplate #610696
    Potentiometer date code: 1377429
    Weight is approx. 9lbs.

    Hipshot Bass Xtender added. I loaned this bass to a friend a couple of years ago and unfortunately the tuner was lost. The pickguards and bridge ashtray are replacements. A couple of pickguard screws look to be replacements too. Frets are in good shape. It's currently strung with a set of D'Addario Chromes. When I removed the neck for photos, I checked the truss rod and it works fine. Recently, some of the paint has flaked off of the upper horn. :( I added the brass thumbrest a couple of years ago. The bass comes with both the red tort and black pickguards. It will be shipped in a non original hard shell case.
    Asking $1600.00 SOLD!!! shipped in the Contl. U.S. Thanks.


    Zon Sonus Special 5
    Body: swamp ash with Bubinga top, hi gloss finish
    Neck: Composite, bolt-on (no truss rod)
    Scale length: 34"
    Fingerboard: Phenowood
    Preamp: Bartolini (Vol, Pan, Bass/Treble)
    Pickups: designed for Zon by Bartolini
    Chrome hardware: Zon brass bridge, Gotoh GB-7 tuners, Schaller strap locks
    String spacing .687"/17mm
    Weight: 9.8lbs.

    This one was built in the mid nineties, however, I recently sent it to Zon for some updates. It sports a current Zon bridge and the control layout was changed from Vol/Vol to volume and blend. The Volume pot, when pulled, bypasses the pre. The neck specs are a little different from the current versions. Width at the nut is 1.734" (1.875" per website). Width at 24th fret is 2.760" (2.875" per website). There are a few nicks in clear coat on the headstock and a couple small nicks by the control plate, but otherwise it looks great. The frets (1-7) show some wear, but still play fine. It will be shipped in a hybrid hard shell case along with the original Zon gig bag.

    Asking $1700.00 SOLD!!! shipped in the Contl. U.S. Thanks.

    "very, very low" is pretty darn low... can any bass do that without some buzzy buzz?

    Yeah, very true, but I understand where he is going with the question. The answer is no. It has a low action, which I find very comfortable, but I doubt it will go lower without fret leveling, technique adjustment, string gauge, etc.
