    Time has come to move on to another hobby! I have several basses to move. I am not in a hurry, and not desperate, but would like to move a few to where they will be played more than they are. I will post more later in the day;

    1) 1969 Fender Jazz Bass. From what I have determined, this was sold to and English buyer, and was refinished in a Fiesta Red colour prior to his purchase. Rosewood neck with blocks. As the legend goes, it was not unusual in England at that time for all basses to be made in Sunburst and then refinished if someone wanted a different colour. The bass comes with a non original case and plays well. It appears that all else is original. $4000 + shipping ...... NOW $3800

    2) 1970/73 Fender Jazz. I bought this bass from a reputable Dealer in Seattle, but when I received it, the body is 1973, and the neck is from 1970. The neck pickup is not original but the bridge pickup, and pots appear to be original. Not sure if pickguard is original. The bass is in great shape and plays well. I think $2200 would be a good deal for someone who want a player or who wants to buy a new neck and pickup to restore this bass.

    3) Very nice conditioned Natural 1983 Music Man Stingray. I have 9-10 pre Ernie Ball Stingrays and this may be the best of the bunch. All set up and ready to go, comes with a Tear Drop case. $2200 + shipping. http://s160.photobucket.com/albums/t166/48blast/1983 Natural SR4H B022707/


    4) 2008 Limited Edition Music Man Stingray 4HH. Seqouia finish. I bought this bass and have had it in storage ever since - It has never been played. Comes with the limited edition case. These are very rare and you never see New Old Stock available. [DEL]$2000[/DEL] + shipping. NOW $1800

    That is an impressive lineup! The '83 and '93 MMs are definitely floating my boat...

    John I suspect I will keep 5-10 Musicman basses (at a minimum). I also have 6 new Larrivees high end acoustics for sale and will keep one or two of them ;-)

    Damn good thing that the '78 Sunburst Ray doesn't have a rosewood neck, or else it would be on its way to Tucson.

    Great collection. Good luck with the sale.
