F/S Tobias Growler, anyone for grapes?

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by Templar, Oct 6, 2008.

  1. SOLD

    Please delete.

    This '97 Growler is a remarkable bass, very modern sounding. I love the way it plays, and the build quality is superb. The raspberry/grape finish just knocks me out.

    Alas, I guess I'm just a old school dude who prefers the sound of Fender-type basses. It's a fine instrument but it's not getting the love it deserves from me, so...

    $595 + shipping. Paypal and Conus. Possibly trade my bass and cash for Lakie Skyline.

    1997 USA built.
    8 1/2 lbs
    All stock, everything works as it should, no issues.

    No fret wear, neck arrow straight, stiff as a board.
    Generic gig bag. Some small scratches on the lower back, one behind the bridge, nothing nasty.

    Atypical, not a typical...
    I love it...

    But I don't have the cash...

    Good luck, unless you wanna trade for a 1 of 1 project bass, Benevente made it, but denounces it.
  8. Thanks but I'm not good with projects, I never get 'em done.
