***SOLD*** Hey guys....look what showed up on my doorstep yesterday!! I agreed to take a bass as a partial trade locally on one of my Rik's, and couldn't believe what the guy showed up with! Dayum...take about ooozing with the "kool factor" Its an '84/85 era Westone "The Rail" in what looks to be great orig condition and is very clean. Built by Matsumoku in Japan. It has a sliding pickup which actually acts as the tone control...and boy, does it work!! This thing sounds amazing!! It only weighs 6 1/2 pounds and plays super. The frets have almost zero wear, and the paint is great with just a couple small nicks. Its got really cool red fret marker inlay dots. Really nice 1.5" Jazz-size, 2 octave neck with very nice action, and the controls work as designed and are very quiet. The tuners are smooth and feel very accurate. It takes regular strings too. The truss rod turns smoothly both ways. I even got the original tools for the bridge saddles, for the nut, and truss rod too. I also have the string ball cover and screws but it's not in the pics. The last one of these I saw was sold last year on FleaBay for over $1300 and had almost 300 bids. I'm not gonna touch this one or put new strings on it or even clean it up, selling her as is just the way I got it. I'd like to throw it out here on TB for $750 shipped conus or shoot me an offer. Trades/swaps etc are fine! I believe this will make a very good investment. This bass will make you super kool, both visually and sonically!! Be prepared to have chicks panties thrown at you!! Some resources I found: http://www.westone.info/reviews/reviewrailbass.html http://www.westone.info/railbass.html I may be able to take trades (up or down) on this one.
