This is a used DeArmond Ashbory bass. I got it off EBay a few months ago and have only played it about an hour since, I just don't like the feel of the strings. Not for me, but maybe for you. It's in decent condition, the finish doesn't have any significant flaws apart from lots of fingerprints and a little general wear. It should polish up nice if you just wipe it down. One more thing, as you'll see fro mthe pictures below (which I'm hoping to be able to upload - fingers crossed) it does only have three strings, the G string broke, but i does come with another set of E-A strings, and you can get extra (and, I hear, better) Gs from Mike Tavener. Finally, I'm in Canada, so anyone bidding from another country should take into account higher shipping costs, duty, etc., and Canadian bidders will get a higher priority due to the fact that it's easier for me. As for the price, I'm asking around 200 USD plus shipping, though I'm slightly negotiatable. I want to purchase a fretless Essex Jazz with the proceeds, so I'm open to any trades along that line; i.e., decently made fretless 4. Drop me a line if you're interested. Pics soon.
