    I’ve had this bass for 20 years. It’s obviously been painted and needs a little work (both reasons for the low price), but overall it is in good condition.

    If you have any questions or would like additional pictures please message me.

    Same here; stop playing games with people.

  12. I'm not playing games and I'm not running an auction. I've had several offers on the bass, some of them requiring me to drive long distances, some of them offering to pick it up right at my house, and some of them just not panning out for whatever reason.

    When I have cash in hand the bass will be marked as sold (Not just when I receive an offer). It's not going to the highest bidder, it's going for $1500, no more and no less.

    It is great that you sold your bass...

    ..... but you were being a tool during the process to multiple people around here. You wasted people's time, offers were made and then rescinded while you made multiple offers to people at the same time and then after bailing on offers when sellers bailed on you, you made further re-contact and offers to people that you bailed on and then while you had offers in the works and verbal agreements again you posted it for sale here and the list goes on generally acting like a PMSing 14 year old....that is being a tool or a troll or a jerk and not the way this community generally conducts itself.
     
  16. Really? I’m the 14 year old? You’re name calling and posting a childish rant on a public forum.

    You didn’t respond to to my PM for a couple days and then you were very short with me when you did. You wanted me to drive halfway to NC to sell the bass and I was up front with you and told you I had other offers that I wanted to entertain first as I had received them before yours. I did have an offer withdrawn initially which added to the confusion.

    I’m really surprised this is the way you are acting with the reputation you have. I had multiple positive exchanges with several other members on TB who didn’t get the bass and they aren’t throwing fits. I was nothing but honest and respectful with you and this is how you acted.

    Canada, Eh!
    ( I see it's marked "SOLD", but) ... I've never heard of these, and I am intrigued... is the neck aluminum, or just the body?
