    Nice bass!
    I suggest you tell the former owner to spend some of that money repairing that sofa in the background!!!

    WOW!! 30 1/4 inch. I have never heard of something that small. It looks pretty cool though. Kind of looks like a guitar. Have fun with it. :)
  5. That was a nice bass..but not too sure about the color....:) How much did you pay for it if you don't mind me asking.
  6. Hey! That is kewl looking! I even like the eye-opening color! ;)

    Can you tell me a bit more of what a tenor bass is ,just a higher tuned bass or?

    Hey, the thing with used custom basses is this: either you take it for what it is or you don't take it at all. For the $430 I paid, I don't mind. I've never had a yellow bass before.

    a tenor bass is tuned adgc, just like the top 4 strings of a 6-string bass. This particular bass was designed to be tuned EADG, ADGC or high EADG (as in a piccolo bass)

    Thanks for the kind words... I am STOKED!:D

    ...keep 'em coming.:)

    I haven't received it yet. It's in transit to me as I write this.

    ... I didn't feel teased. Anyhoo, It will lend itself to my solo chordal stuff. Maybe I can even get Jazzbo to do a bass duet with me sometime...
