UPDATE 9/12 From post #75: Just made a couple calculations with USPS Retail Ground: 20 lbs; 50" x 8" x 21"; $62.25 20 lbs; 51" x 8" x 21"; $196.61 END UPDATE OP: I was going to put a bass on ebay until I got to the shipping part. I checked USPS and UPS rates, and it was about $200 to ship a bass from coast to coast. That's a 25 lb package big enough to surround the case with 2" extra on all sides. The weight was a little high, but past experience has shown that what the ebay shipping calculator is ALWAYS low on figuring the shipping costs. Who do you guys use for shipping basses within the USA? A few years ago I shipped through UPS, and it was usually in the $45-$50 range BEFORE the price hike which added about $30. These new rates are insane.
