SOLD 2 Free Basses, You Pay Shipping!!

  1. I got these basses about a year ago in a pawn shop, one is a Fender copy and the other one is a custom (I guess) "joke" bass.

    First up is the Fender Copy, nice bass, sounds OK I guess, hey, it's free :D The headstock says "Sadowsky" my guess is that it's one of those Korean/Chinese copies. Somebody painted white squares all over the fretboard (it looks decent) $40 "shipped"

    Second one is the one I call "Joke" Bass. It has 5 strings (yep, you read correctly, 5 strings) The fretwork is terrible, the frets are all crooked :scowl: :rollno:. My guess is that it was either built as a joke or the guy got a little "tipsy" and went crazy (5 strings and crooked frets). This one was made in Canada (it figures) $40 "shipped"

    I can't afford to pay the shipping on these, but if you can kick in $ for gas money I'll come pick them up. You're only 2500 or so miles away...

    Good point. Looks like the fret job was done by one of my fellow Canadians during a Molson Canadian bender!:eyebrow::D

    Would you consider trades for you free basses? I'd feel to bad simply taking them...
