Ahoy, mateys! Up for sale is my dear and cherished SR5, SN 53418. It's transluscent blue burst with maple neck/board (all one piece, actually). White pearl pickguard, white pickups. Bone stock other than Dunlop Straploks, the pickguard, and a nut replacement to fix the usual G string problem that SR5s have. It is in mint condition with the exception of a bit of light scuffing under the back lip of the bridge where someone dragged a B string across the finish once. There is no way I would be able to photograph it and you'd be hard pressed to actually see it unless the light was right. I myself didn't notice it until I'd had the bass for three months. If you compared this 13 year old bass up against any SR5 you'd find at Guitar Center I would put money on you walking away with this one. This is a '93, which from the Basses forum I gather is smack in the middle of some great years of Ernie Ball's production. I bought it from OldieButNoobe a while back and he never had it out to a gig. He told me that the previous owner was the original purchaser and never had it out of the house. I myself have never taken it on a gig. Here are a couple pictures that OldieButNoobe took and I'll follow with more later on: It is currently strung with Ernie Ball Regular Slinky strings. I also have a set of TI jazz flats for it which sound incredible (and I recommend them over the Slinkys unless you are a hardcore slapper). I'll string and intonate it with your choice and include the other set. Both sets are barely broken in. I will include a fresh battery for the preamp. I am sellling it because I have resigned myself to the fact that I am a Lakland junkie. This bass looks, plays, and sounds incredible but I recently got a JO5 and it's tough to even bring myself to play the SR5. I hate to sell it (and will probably regret it) but I have to face the fact that it's simply not going to get used if it stays here. I would like $1000 for it and am open to trades and offers. I'm especially interested in high end drum gear, Lakland basses, and small cabs by Bergantino or Epifani. I want it to go to a TBer and am not in a hurry to sell it so don't expect it on ebay anytime soon. If you buy this bass and don't end up liking it, you have a week from the day it arrives to contact me and send it back for a full refund of the purchase price minus shipping both ways. I have some feedback under the old TB system and you can check out my ebay feedback by looking up "cookiemobster".
