    20181107_181753. Heavy decisions made and as much as I love all my basses and they are all well loved and used, I am downsizing to the ones that I play most.
    I do reserve the right to pull some basses or the ad should in change my mind but here is what I am looking for specifically:

    Sales welcome and reasonable offers as well.

    I will post pics probably within a few days as it will to asked time but with exception to particular nordstrand "nordy" basses, I am.going pretty much all f-bass.q

    Here is what I have currently for trade or sale:
    Gfc (George furlanetto custom) L5 2001 ash/maple and trans straw finish with black hardware. Birdseye maple board! Recently set up by Mike lull. About 9 lbs $2150 shipped and trade value a little higher. Some honest player wear and can understand why. There are little dings and some wear and checking in the finish.

    Nordstrand "nordy" vj5 in oly white with white pickguard, big singles and nordy 2 band pre. Brazilian rw board . About 9.5 lbs. $2800 trade a little higher
    ***probably going to keep this one unless traded for nordy vj4 or f-bass vf5 or vf4***

    Suhr classic jazz bass ash body and Indian rw board. Nordstrand warm and wooley jazz blades and hipshot hardware, nordy 2 band pre. Metallic shoreline gold with white pickguard. Also has hipshot d tuner, original tuner and 2 extra pickguards and original suhr singles. Also has nickel not ss frets. Recent set up by mo mina. $2550 shipped and trade value a little higher.


    Trade value slightly higher and here is what I am looking for:

    F-bass vf4 Any color but 2010 model or up as I like the neck heel block.

    F-bass vf5 any pickup config is fine but hoping for a pj.

    Nordy vp4 or vj4

    Clover Avenger because I want to try one.

    F-bass bn4 or bn5 studio 34" scale

    That is prob about it for now. Pics to come and feel.free with questions.

    Gig bags or case for each of these.

    Also can help even out trades with a bevy of mxr bass pedals.:)

    Pics to come later. These basses are in Colorado now so would ship from there.

    19mm string to string.
    Its the one I'd pull first from this list but would prob sell first.

    Only letting go to get an f-bass vf5 pj or I'd keep it.

    Very nice lineup you have there. I owned that F for a long time and it is a killer bass. Glwts.

    I ordered my custom F Bass BN4 last October and received it in May 2018. It's the best bass I ever owned. I'd like a VF4 next

    Mo clocked the weight of the suhr jazz just over 9.5 lbs with the hipshot d tuner on it. It's really close to 9.5 lbs on my scale.

    Prob gonna pull the nordy vj5 but if someone offers my asking price, I will entertain it.
    F-bass vf4, bn4, and vf5pj's are welcome and nordy vj5 or vp4's.

    Pretty sure that this is the last go around bump.
    F-bass vf's are my hope but a bn4 gets my attention also.
    I would trade the f-bass or suhr for a nordy vj4 or vp4 depends on condition.

    Thanks!

    Some things I really want and need so these need to go. The nordy may get pulled as i am the original owner and am most attached to that one but I will sell it for the firm price posted.
    Also dont care if I keep the suhr due to a recent project but will sell it to get something that I want more.
    I have two of the gfc basses am keeping the heavier of the two.

    Trades plus/minus cash for f-bass vf's.

    Played the nordy vj5 yesterday and t church and that one will likely stay. Only the perfect vf4 or vf5 could sway me.
    For the suhr and f-bass gfc, still open to sale (plus or minus cash) or trade for nordy vj4, vp4, or f bass bn4 or bn5 or if you happen to have a clover avenger bass.
