    I have an Akai Deep Impact + power supply that I picked up at the local Music Go Round. It just isn't for me and I can't find a place for it in our classic rock band. Mint condition and works great. The octaver tracks unbelievably and I thought of keeping it just for that, but my Digitech Bass Synth Wah tracks just as good. Asking $260 + shipping for the Deep Impact.

    Also have an "SX" fretless 5'er jazz copy. I bought it to dink around with, and now I know I need to stick with a 4 banger. I modded the pickguard to black. It's sunburst and of the vintage series which basically means the wood has that smoky appearance. The thing receives surprisingly high reviews on Harmony Central. It's in mint shape, gigged with on a couple songs. It's been professionally set up with some Fender flatwounds. Go to Rond.com for more info. It's the SBJ-62 5-string jazz copy. $115 + shipping. I can email you more pictures of it if you like.

    Will take Paypal on both.

    Ideally, I'd like to trade on a nice 4 string fretless even if I pay some cash, but not lots more cash.

    How heavy is that bass? I've played a handful of Brice (SX) 5's and they were quite "boat anchory" ( I think Pee Wee Herman coined that phrase). :)

    With all that Alder & everything, it goes close to 10# on the scale test. But then again, I'm used to playing a Music Man Sabre as my main bass and that thing must be closer to 11#. Here's more on it from Rondo music. It's a bit more pretty in person. The pics don't really do it justice.

    I've worked a trade for the Deep Impact.

    The SX Jazz copy is still available.
