    "Sheesh...I heard that Craigslist was a good place to find used music gear, but mostly all I see are crap brands like Ibanez or BC Rich junk that wannabe rockstars and metal wankers play..

    I am looking for a real bass. Which means a FENDER with FOUR STRINGS. A Jazz or Precision. Or the special Sting model from a few years back. No, not a Squire! A FENDER. MIJ or USA made. Color negotiable. In others words, just a REAL BASS. The kind of bass that all the most successful bassists from the most famous, long lasting rock bands, blues bands, Motown and Stax bands, etc... a FENDER. The only bass thats necessary. "

    Even better. Throw it on a non fender looking bass all together and tell him it was a limited run rare instrument. :p

    Yeah, but REAL BASSES are old. Only wannabe rock stars and metal wankers buy new.

    North of Aurora, that town they used as a setting for Wayne's World. So it's in the shadow of a long forgotten comedy skit, that's how unimportant the place is.

    Seeing as how you're from from Norway, I'll assume that US geography isn't exactly your strong suit.

    You know Chicago Illinois? If Chicago had an armpit, that would be Joliet. If Chicago had an @****** It would be Batavia.

    (I have a couple of clients in Batavia,and they are all *******s!)

    clearly a closet guitar player trying to over-compensate with 4 string bravado.
