    Now on ebay with LOW LOW LOW starting price!

    So, I had closed a deal with TB member Dave Muscato (see http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?p=1670214#post1670214), but this morning he emailed me saying that his car's transmission broke. So here we go again.

    I had this bass built for me by Matt at FBB. If you were to order it today, it would cost $2,700. I'm willing to sell for a fraction of that ($1,800 plus shipping).

    It's in brand new condition, comes with a luxury padded gigbag. You can see it at www.fbbcustom.com -- go to Inventory, it's #1074. Here are the specs:

    - 5 piece figured cocobolo/white oak/mahogany body, matching cavity cover
    - 7 piece flame maple/purpleheart neck
    - Graphite reinforcement rods
    - Gloss lacquer finish (rare on FBBs)
    - Macassar ebony fingerboard, abalone inlays
    - 2 Bartolini soapbars
    - 2 Series/paralles switches (close to bridge in pics)
    - East U-Retro Deluxe preamp (with passive tone)
    - Neutrik locking jack
    - Black tuners
    - Black Hipshot 3-way adjustable bridge
    - Black Schaller straplocks

    Please email me with any questions.

    Before people start reporting this thread, the auction link is OK - he's had it for sale here since 10-1, and it's now on eBay. It isn't a thread started to advertise an auction.
