    Willing to part out: let me know what you are interested in.

    Trade interest:
    • Onboard pre’s: Aguilar OBP-3, Darkglass, EMG BQC, or other 3 bands...
    • Outboard: GK Plex, EBS Micro Bass II, Phil Jones Big Head (ver 1 or 2)
    • What ya got?
    I have strict “1 bass policy” at this time. I have a sweet bass ‘returning home’ to me, and this one needs to go out. Total project deal when I got it. The price reflects the cost of the parts, but don’t be afraid to shoot me an offer!

    - Yamaha BB G4 body, blue trans finish over solid alder with foto-flame ‘top’
    - finish by the forearm relief was peeling when I received the body, so I finished pulling it back after removing the previous player DNA. The finish is stable to the edges as even.
    - the neck has very thin ‘sealer coats’ of spray on lacquer
    - DiMarzio J set with EVH low friction 500K passive volume SwitchCraft jack (no selector/blend) bought new and approx 4 months old.
    -Maple on Maple 30” Allen Eden Neck: came as paddle head and shaped by me to the current (adequately mimicked) “MM” shape
    - 21 medium jumbo frets, side dots only, 14” radius
    - straight neck, low action; dual-action truss rod (that’s right, DUAL-action), 4mm nut adjust at headstock
    - Sperzel Tuners in gold, with chrome round retainer
    - High mass bridge with brass saddles, (3) gold dome knobs and Gotoh oversized strap buttons; lots of patina on the original knobs and bridge, the tuners and buttons look new.
    - 3” poly web strap included
    - 8 lbs even: nice and light on the shoulder...

    Intonates, tunes and plays excellent. Current neck is dead straight. If you don’t want it to be short scale, you can add a 24 fret 34” scale neck easily.

    Neck will be removed for shipment.

    Asking price is shipped CONUS. Basically, covers the cost of the parts, and shipping. I will also consider shipping elsewhere if the buyer is willing to pay any additional fees. Thanks for looking.

    Parts pricing (includes shipping CONUS):
    • Neck $50
    • Body $45
    • Tuners $50
    • Bridge + knobs + neck plate/screws $20
    • Pickups +pot + jack $75
