    Gluttony is Bad! Very Bad, I say! :help:
    I feel guilty with so many basses and no band to play them with. These basses deserve a better home, where they will be played.

    All prices include a gigbag and shipping to the lower 48 states.
    I gladly take Paypal and can discount if you have cash and you're local.;)

    Lakland 55-01 SOLD
    Benavente SCD Standard 5 SOLD
    MTD Saratoga 5 SOLD
    Yamaha BB425X
    Brubaker Brute MJX5 SOLD

    1. First up is the one I thought I'd never, ever part with.
    A Lakland 55-01 with some major upgrades.
    Sunburst with maple board.
    Nordstrand Big Splits with custom maple covers. ($450 upgrade alone)
    Bartolini NTMB 18v preamp with active/passive pot on the volume and hi/mid/low mid switch
    Creme pearl pickguard
    35"scale 19mm spacing
    a little over 9 pounds.
    She is one sweet bass!

    $750 shipped with gigbag SOLD
    see pics here.

    2. Next,
    A Benavente SCD Standard 5 that has also seen upgrades. I had this listed last year but pulled it.
    I sent it to Chris Benavente to work on it and give it a clean bill of health. ($100)
    He installed a new truss rod nut and sanded/refinished the back of the neck. (What a great guy to work with!)
    Then, I sent it over to the Low End to have new Stack coil pickups and an LEJ preamp installed. ($435)
    Alder body with maple top and Rosewood fingerboard.
    It also has new knobs, a Carvin bridge, and Gotoh tuners.
    weighs 9.5 pounds and sounds super tight!
    Great shape. Just some impressions on the under side of the lower bout. (see pics)
    To sweeten the deal, I'll include the original wide humbuckers that were in the bass.

    $950 shipped with a gigbag. SOLD!
    See pics here.

    3. A completely modded MTD Saratoga 5
    Candy Tangerine (Just painted in June)
    Maple fingerboard.
    Babicz Full Contact bridge
    Gotoh Tuners
    Nordstrand NJ5 pickups
    Aguilar 3 band preamp with Active/passive switch switchable mids.
    I also had a custom Variegated Gold leaf pickguard made by Mike Quick over at Quickguards. It's not yet screwed in, so you have your choice of using it, or not.
    Also has black inlay stickers, which can be easily removed.
    There are a couple of light impressions on the fingerboard, but nothing major. You have to look for them.
    This is a tone monster!

    $600 shipped in a gigbag.SOLD
    Pics here.

    4. Like new Yamaha BB425x (A highly underrated bass)
    Metallic Red.
    Rosewood board.
    Approx. 10 pounds
    The only mod done was an upgraded Gotoh bridge ($110)
    This bass is a champ! It really is like new!

    $450 shipped with a gigbag.

    Pics here.

    5. Lastly, a Brubaker Brute MJX5
    Mediterranean finish with maple board.
    No mods. Just a great bass.
    about 9.5 pounds.
    Great condition. Just a small scrape around the input jack and a small ding on the back. (see pics)

    $475 shipped with a gigbag SOLD

    Pics of the gigbags.
    They're all new with tags. They're simple, but work.

    Possible deal in the works for the MTD, with a few in line if it falls through.

    The switches are passive/active and mid frequency.

    I'll update the listing and notify all interested parties when I know more...

    Thanks for all the interest.
  14. I want your Lakland bump...:crying:

    The MTD just sold.

    I think I pm'd everyone that was waiting. I hope I didn't miss anyone. I apologize if I did.

    The Benavente, Brubaker and MTD all shipped today.

    Two to go.

    Lot's of bites on the Lakland...
    but who will commit? :ninja:

    Also, there have been a lot of great trade offers, but I 'm sorry I really, really need to downsize.
    Thanks though

    Bump for a great guy to do business with! And for that Yamaha! Those are very under appreciated basses IMO and a great value. Someone needs to jump on that one.....

    To help sweeten the deal, the next bass to sell will ship with a nice SKB hard case.
