    I'm asking 793$ shipped.
    It's a great bass in great condition.
    Natural finish (gloss)
    Beautiful quilt maple top
    7 piece wenge/purpleheart neck with purpleheart fingerboard
    Swamp ash body
    Equipped with custom 7 string smith set (VERY LIGHT, E string is a .90)
    Plays well and balances perfectly with strap.

    Only ding that I know of is one on the back of the upper horn somewhere, but it's not in the wood.
    Comes with extra string set, conklin case, bass, truss rod adjusting tool (special trimmed allen wrench to acces the truss rods), and a free pen!

    NO TRADES.

    Again, I'm asking $793.00 shipped to the lower 48 and am willing to ship to other countries (additional cost)

    I have no digital camera, but I could probably borrow one and get better pics. I'll try and get them ASAP

    I'm digging the 7, but I like 4 a lot better. I do a lot of jazz and when walking I rarely find myself going up that high. Plus, I need cash for my alembic.
     
  6. And of course you sell when I don't have the $$ for one :p I'll put my Ibanez up for trade ;) Good luck on the sale.
     
  7. my thoughts exactly.

    Solid enough reason, hey, with the money from my Gt-7 I bought a bass AND a brand new 15" cab, I miss that instrument, but selling it was definitly a good option. Now Its all savings to the final drop and shipping of the custom, good luck with the sale and a bump while at it ;)

    Thanks :)
     
  11. 2 questions.

    1. You say the string gauges are very light. Do I have to replace the nut if I want to play with regular gauge strings, like 130-32? Of course the trussrod is going to need adjustment.

    2. Are you interested in shipping to Sweden?

    No. The bass came with that basic gauge, I put on lighter gauges and set it up accordingly.

    Sweeden? Sure.

    You might want to edit your original post saying NO TRADES because you need the money for your alembic, that would ceep people from offering trades. good luck
