    Okay, have the wife's permission to sell this one now. We have here a vintage neck-through creamy pearl white Charvel 3B bass. Yes, the 80's poor mans Hair Metal Jackson bass. These basses are actually very fine Japanese made basses. Sporting a set of EMG P/J pickups from that era. The Jackson JE2000 preamp wired at 18volts, aka: LOUD! She is in very good shape for her vintage. Good frets, truss rod works and comes with the odd sized 7mm ajusting tool. Usual wear at the pointy bit of the headstock. I had to glue the nut back on recently, it came loose while it was stored in the case in my gear room. The finish on these is so thick I believe it makes up at least one pound of it's weight. The tweed case is worn but does it's job still. Since I now play Spector basses exclusively this one is not getting played at all, so time to send her to someone who will put the girl to use. Asking $300.00 firm shipped CONUS only. Paypal preferred. PM if interested.

    Hey there bro. Been busy with my job all this week and haven't had time to do anything but sleep, work and squeeze eating in there somewhere. This one will probably still be available when you have the funds.
    Peace,
    Mike B. :D

    I love aged white. I stll have a model2 a model4 and a custom unit I painted close to the pearl white finish. A few years ago I sold off all my 3b's except for my rainbow crackle, since I never saw another one, but yes I would love to have a white 3b to add. Like anything else, I'f someone snags it they do, and good for you since your selling it.
    If it is still around a couple weeks from now, it might be mine if it is still for sale.

    thanks,

    Mike P.

    a bump for a great bass.
    how can anyone pass up a clean neckthru unit for 300 with a case?

    If you want to hear what it can potentially sound like on your recordings, here's a scratch track I did for a friends band on my identical 3b tuned with the 45-105strings to C#F#BE.

    recorded: bass>blue boss compressor pedal>computer.

    Dang Mike, nice and heavy bass tone there. The singer reminds me of John Bush somewhat. Thanks for posting the audio. :bassist::D

    well like last time, if it is available at the end of this week I'll be sure to PM you. When you closed this unexpectedly I used my gig money for something else.

    Mike, I am pretty sure this one will be here at the end of the week. As you and I know, these are a very underrated basses, mostly due to the Hair Metal stigma. Few realize that C/J basses were played by Randy Jackson, Rex Brown, David Ellefson and others besides those L.A. hacks that were products of the cookie mill mentality of the music industry. Just my two cents, IMHO, YMMV, FWIW etc......:bag:
