    Here is a one-of-a-kind bass. It is a Big Tex. You can check them out at bigtexguitars.com. They built one of the Teles that Billy Gibbons is currently touring with. Anyway, this bass is one of one. It was built for a friend of the owner. I saw it at the Arlington show, and ended up with it. Well, now I need some funds. This has a Chandler pick-up and pickguard, and the bass weighs just over 7.5 pounds. It is set up with D-addario Chromes and plays great. It has a "relic" finish. It will ship in a padded gig bag. Big Tex guitars sell for 1699. I am looking for 1200 OBO, or a trade for an acoustic bass guitar + cash, OR Mexican Jazz bass + cash, or a nice 4x10 8ohm cab + cash.

    Wicked thing! Is the neck pretty much like all the other 51 RI's shape/sizewise?

    It feels like it's closest to a Fender "c" neck to me. Very comfortable! Thanks.

    Sweet looker.
