    OK i figure i will throw these out there.

    Find out on the first that me and the wife are gonna be havin a mini-stingraybaby! so somethings have gotta go.

    my daion 1st off... EXCELLENT BASS!!! alembic like string spacing( ie doesnt change from nut to bridge) neck through, string through body, P J config. sounds like a pre cbs p bass when p bass pick up is soloed. i really hate to let this go and if i dont get a good offer i might hold on to it. i'd like 400 for it and its case.

    and my jazz fretless...MIM fretless jazz. only down side to this is i was on a no finish neck kick and sanded off the finish on the back of the neck. plays 100 times better IMO but you should be aware. minimal finger wear because i got my other fretless shortly there after! this one sounds and plays excellent. for the right offer i will throw in a non-original hardshell case! 250 for this!
    i also have a takamine acoustic 6 string Gu***r i will take 200 for if you know anyone intrested!

    of course you pay shippin from 37130 but if you live close ( i consider atlanta and such close) i will meet you half way to save ya shippin!

    let me know guys! thanks in advance!

    Hey guys (and gals),I had a Daion fretless 4 back in the 80's and it was a wonderful instrument and well worth the asking price.I don't think that you would be disappointed.
    Good luck.

    I had a Daion too back in the 70's - what a really great bass. To this day wonder what I did with it - I just cannot remember.

    Stingrayguy - have you spoken with the Swamee - basspalace. Bob has a hunkering for Daion basses. he might be able to move it for you or buy it from you

  5. Stingrayguy - I can't get your e-mail address to work. Please contact me. Thanks.

    I have been gigging with my Daion lately and I have been receiving compliments on both its looks and sound. These are very nice, well made instruments. A fretless one was sold on ebay recently for $1000.
    I don't see how anyone could be disappointed in buying one.
