  1. What are some of the basses you notice that are never for sale in the TB classifieds?

    I just saw a really nice one of these somewhere.... I can't remember where though.... ;)

    Seriously though these are some of favorite basses out there and they just simply don't exist on the secondary market. There are a couple of the same ones floating around that have been floating around for a while but, for the most part, you don't see them used very often.

    Mouradian Reality basses seem to be totally out of the second-hand loop. Fleishman scroll basses too. And I want both.

    pretty much all Mouradian basses are out of the loop because so few were made. I would love to have a Reality to go with my CS-74
