    Only possible trade options would be:
    Fender JMJ Mustang Bass plus Cash
    Squier Matt Freeman Precision plus a lot of cash.
    Maple tinted maple neck passive Precision. Retro vibe preferred.
    Needle in a Hay Stack Trade: Both of those!

    Google Photos Album - HERE - Shipped and Paypaled in the Continental USA.

    It has some case fuzz / dust flecks on it. For the photos I took them and auto corrected them in google photos, and cropped them. I don't want to go to town setting it up because if you are like me - you will restring it because you are buying it from a stranger. It's in great shape! I think it needs strings and a setup anyways since it's been in the desert. Get the D'addario Chromes Medium scale - I don't have any sets to include. That's what it is made for.

    I bought this as a Demo from Chicago Music Exchange and just never bonded with it. I'm a Fender guy soundwise. Good Neck, great playability - and lightweight! Just not my sound, unfortunately. This bass needs no mods - it's an amazing example of one of these and these are very consistent - I have played 3 and they were all great. I fell in love with a mustang bass locally so I'm needing to sell this player.

    A real beauty and one, if not the best, deal I’ve seen on these. Good luck!

    Thank you! I like the plain top over the flamey ones. It's a good one, I just wish I bonded with it. I know I will regret this in a decade but I don't have disposable income for basses! So I got to do a 1 in, 1 out rule unless it's a squier!
