Bolin NS 5 String for sale or trade

  1. Got this one recently but I need some cash to buy a cab, so I'm putting it up here for sale or partial trade. It's a Bolin/NS 5 string bass, designed by Ned Steinberger, with a single cutaway Les Paul-type body. There's a strap extension that swings out so that the bass balances properly on a strap. The bass is thin and light in weight. Ebony fretboard on a maple neck with a cool slotted headstock. EMG soapbar pickups, 3-band EQ, and a piezo system that sounds incredible. Price includes hardshell case and all documentation.

    I know the market sucks right now, and I'm always up for trading; however I do need some cash out of this bass, so I'll sell for $1995 or take a partial trade + cash. 4, 5, 6 string fretted basses are all fair game. I'd like to get between $800-$1000, so that should give you an idea of what I'm looking for.

  3. Nope, gotta do it. I wanted this bass for so long, but I'm starting my final full-time semester of school and I need the cash for books, etc.
     
  4. Yeah, I remember those days...I parted with more cool stuff than I want to think about. Hope you can at least break even. How's the book-learnin' coming?
