Essex for sale on Ebay Ya'll

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by tufnuts, Sep 3, 2002.


  1. Hey all. Was diggin around on ebay..ran across this. I'm sure someone has enough of a bug diggin into em to get a Essex BG-150 and put a BA2 and a preamp in it. But the seller seems a little..uh...unknowing.

    "The neck is a beatiful blonde maple neck made by a company sx. (kind of like warmoth)"

    Uhh...no cigar on that one dude.

    Anyway... Auction Eh?

    Enjoy. That's my good deed for the year.
     
  2. I could swear that was a *bass* ;)

    Essex sells basses/guitars. Warmoth is a parts company that you have to assemble.

    That particular bass used to belong to me. I sold it to a friend of mine & he sold it to someone else & that person has it on eBay. It's actually a very good bass. Except that it is REALLY heavy. It's an Essex (SX) bass, not just the neck. Ive replaced the bridge (BadAss II), pickups (Fender American Standard) & I've added an EMG BTC 2 band pre-amp.
     
  5. Well, the elitist twits over on the FDP have seized on this auction as an example of someone trying to pull a scam by calling it a "custom" bass. The arguments for and against were pretty good and the banter lively until someone piped in with Fender's own description of the Geddy Lee bass as being a "custom".

    I guess he'll be banned now.

    For these prices, we can only offer the basses as is.
