    This is an old made in Korea, Cort SS Jazz bass with matching head stock and ashtray covers (or whatever they're called).

    Before you read further, let me make a disclaimer:
    I don't want to mislead anyone, but I've been given the impression, based on other instruments and what I've heard,
    that the last two numbers on the sticker on the back of the head stock indicate the production year.
    This may be wrong, but it's what I've been led to believe.
    So decide for yourself, but it certainly looks like it could be almost 30 years old.

    And it does have a sizable amount of damage at the bottom. It must have been dropped or something:

    See all the photos of the bass here:

    (Some of the pictures do not have the bridge cover on it, but both covers will be included with the bass.)

    All electronics work. Tuners are good, other hardware is solid. It's wearing flats right now and sounds good through my Ampeg combo.
    I like this little old instrument, but short scale basses aren't my thing.

    As far as price goes, considering the damage to it, I think $150 shipped would be fair.
    I may be interested in trading. I can add cash for the right deal, but I'm not looking for anything of high value.
    Feel free to make me an offer.

    I played an MIK Cort pbass tonight at rehearsal. It was every bit as good, if not better, than my beloved MIK Squier pbass. Just sayin'.

    Thanks for the bump and the good word!
    I thought this might be gone by now at $150.

    I'll do $130 shipped.

    Anyone?

    Bueller?

    Man, at that price I may pick it up. It'll be a crime if nobody jumps on this. Great deal on what should be a great bass.

    I'm almost tempted to cancel my layaway of an MIK Squier jbass and pick this one up instead.

  11. Oh man, this would make a nice companion to my 70's MIJ Cortez Jazz bass!

    And your only one state away!

    [DEL]Good question. I don't know and I'm not sure how to find out, but if I had to guess, I think[/DEL] it's [DEL]probably[/DEL] 30" scale.

    Not really looking for effects right now, thanks.

    Figured out how to measure for scale length thanks to slap2much. Turns out it is 30 inches.

    Replied to all PMs.
