    I traded a college student for this bass. He told me it was purchased by his mom for him and sat in a case untouched since 2006, minus a little play the day he got it I'm sure. Normally I would call BS on that, but there is not even trace of swirling on the back or anything of the sort. Has plastic on guard (doesn't mean much because I've seen beaters with that too, but I thought I would point out). I would actually call it new other than two things that I had to look hard to find. 1) small intent on the headstock that I've pictured. 2) quarter inch clear coat scratch on the inside edge of the lower horn, which is impossible to photo on black paint. I prefer to under promise and over deliver, and this bass will not disappoint.

    Sounds weird, but I'd probably keep it if it had more wear on it. Since I already have an American Jazz I like, I prefer to sell before I do something to tarnish it's virginity. I'm needing an inexpensive bass I can bring with me as I fly around the country for my day job, but this one is too nice.

    Beautiful, how's it play? And what's the weight?

    You traded a college student for this bass? I'd say that was a good move on your part. :p

    Definitely interested. Dealing with a few things but will potentially PM you within the next couple days if everything works out... this bass looks sick.

    If this was a 5 string, this would've been mine :(

    Anything you'd consider for trade other than a UBass?

    Early 2000s Jackson LS Bass? Real cool instrument, just not my speed, really digging the fenders lately. It's got some upgrades to hardware and such, but electronics are all duncan designed MIJ stuff, one MM style humbucker, one Jazz Pup, 2 band active EQ. String through, set neck, tobacco burst finish with nice wood grain. Normal dings and scuffs.
     
  11. Alder or poplar body?

    I'm sorry but I'm not sure. Did 06 Mexican basses come with both options?
     
  13. No. Depending on the year the body wood was one or the other. Some of the earlier were poplar and I think that latter Alder.

    I've been researching a little and it looks like it would be alder.

    :[... not to offend you or anything.. even if that bass was in mint condition.. it has to be used some time while it left the factory.. i think 400 dollars is a lot considering that.

    In my personal opinion, I think the Bass is in great shape for $400 shipped. Good luck with the sale.

    Thank for the support! I feel like it's fair given it's condition. We'll have to see if the market agrees. I'm not in a hurry but will eventually creep it down some more.

    You will not be disappointing in this bass!
    I guarantee it like Men's Warehouse.
