    a bass Company?

    I'll give you the back story. About 6 months ago I with the help of my father purchased the assets of "The Bass Company" out of Bolivar, Mo. This was the culmination of a life long dream to be in the the business. Dad a retired master machinist was going to rough the instruments in Tennessee and I would do fit and finish in Illinois. Sadly, Dad has been diagnosed with Parkinson's and is not responding to treatment. I would estimate the wholesale value of the company to be 28-32k or higher (mostly) Grizzly machinery. Raw materials, Hardware, Electronics, Tools, fixtures ect. (there are about 120 or so finished bodies, 30 or so necks....)
    I need to get 20k out

    Prayers for you & your father. My dad was a master machinist. He could look at anything and figure out how to make it and make it better.

    It would be local pick up although Milan TN is the home of Milan express freight so I'm sure something could be done. I am trying to sell complete either company or machinery.

    I am not looking to do a part out. I will either sell all company assets complete. or I will sell just the equipment complete.

    Hey, I'm really sorry to hear about your father. I hope that's going okay.

    Have you thought of starting up a Kickstarter? Maybe you could calculate what it would take to hire a machinist with your father's skills and otherwise get an infusion of investment capital?

    I can understand why you wouldn't necessarily want to do that, so best of luck getting to where you need to go.
