    Will post pictures in subsequent posts, just getting this out there to start (and get my ass in gear).

    I just have way too many basses at the moment and need to either cash out, trade for more usable items or consolidate multiple pieces into something I'm more likely to keep.

    [DEL]BASS #1) FrankenGeddy - Asking $325 shipped or offer[/DEL] *** SOLD ***
    - Black MIM body. Got some wear and tear on it - let's call it mojo!
    - EMG active pickups, WBW 3 layer pick guard
    - Standard control plate with Strat style VVT knobs
    - Squier VM 77 maple neck, bound with black blocks
    - Standard MIM bent-plate chrome bridge

    [DEL]BASS #2) Cimar Jazz - Asking $225 shipped or offer[/DEL] *** SOLD ***
    - Made in Japan by Ibanez, labeled as a Cimar
    - Nice blocked maple neck with retro Ibanez paddle headstock
    - Mahogany body with nicely aged paint, pickguard and pup covers
    - Needs new electronics (just pots I think). Will include and extra loaded control plate (and strings!)
    - Made one year only! 1982 catalog here: http://www.ibanez.co.jp/anniversary/expansion.php?cat_id=72&now=1

    [DEL]BASS #3) G&L JB2 Tribute - Asking $230 shipped or offer[/DEL] *** SOLD ***
    - Beautiful tobacco burst body, in great shape
    - Specially routed for Darkstars by spiritbass http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/dark-star-equipped-tribute-jb-2-a-979795/
    - Custom MM Sabre style control plate
    - Well detailed maple neck
    - Everything but pickups - ready for your mod work!

    PMs answered - pretty sure the Cimar is spoken for at this point.


    Pics of the FrankenGeddy... which will also include a set of vintage Jazz knobs and a Fender logo strap.

    More pics of the G&L if you click the first link in my sig, below...

    Cimar sale pending. G&L and Geddy both have offers, but nothing finalized yet.
    Prefer to cash out, but would trade either (or both) towards an MIJ Fender - ie: Aerodyne, Jazz Bass Special or similar.

    Cimar Jazz has been sold to a local low-ender. Enjoy the bass Miguel!

    Trade bait on the Geddy and G&L (separately or together +/- cash as needed):

    - Anything MIJ Fender
    - Lightweight Class 2 head
    - Badass II / Babicz / Hipshot bridges
    - Audere / Aguilar preamps
    - High quality pickups (Jazz / PJ)
    .

    Pic of the retro Jazz knobs - the good kind with set screw.

    The FrankenGeddy will also come with a new/unused Fender strap.

    Weekend PMs answered.

    Yes, I do have a Badass II available for the Geddy - for added $/trade value.
    Fender waterslide also, but you put it on.

    Still entertaining offers...

    More trade bait after seeing some recently...

    80s Ibanez basses! Either the Roadstars, or early Soundgears.

    Looks like the FrankenGeddy might be spoken for at this point.

    Taking offers on the G&L bump...

    PMs on the G&L answered. Many tire kickers and some OK offers, but nothing worth biting on just yet.

    Cash is king this time of year, but trades OK if it's something worth both of us paying shipping over.

    I figured there would be enough project tweakers here to give it a shot, but may have to keep the G&L until its finished... that, or bass budgets are tight because of Christmas.

    Bump to the top

    Additional pic of the G&L:

    The Redeemer circuit is fully connected and AFAIK, works fine. The bass needs pickups, strings and an owner who will put her to use.

    It either goes to someone before Christmas or I put it away until I get some pickups in it.
