DeArmond Ashbory FS/T

    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.

    Okay here are the resized/cropped pictures of the front and back, I have all kinds of ridiculously huge pictures that I can't post, so if you want those, let me know.

    I've always wanted an ashbury but I live in the uk so tax is a killer for starters.

    If the shipping was cheap i'd be very willing to concider it but I have to add on 17.5% VAT and 3.2% Duty tax on the total cost of bass and shipping. So not sure if it's that economical.

    Well, if you could send me your postal code via email or PM I could try to quote you some rates.

    Does anyone at all want this, or should I just send it on to eBay?
